WE GO THROUGH EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO GET YOUR PRODUCT BUSINESS STARTED
We start with an initial 1.5hr zoom session to discuss your brand and your vision and your customer. We will lay the ground work for some key action points to get you started and then we will put together a road map for your business and the steps you need to take along the way. You will be given some work to do before the call to help you get clear on this.
We will have monthly 1hr video calls to hold you accountable and work on the road map to make sure everything that needs to happen does so that you can launch your product/brand.

DON’T JUST TAKE MY WORD FOR IT
“Nicole helped standardise our Home Fragrance range and introduce new products which drove additional sales. Through her contacts and knowledge we were able to provide a better product to our customer and make a plan for scheduled launches over a six month period”
Nicole is passionate, creative and knows her stuff when it comes to products, customers and business. I first met Nicole when we launched Cocoa Brown into Primark in 2013 a few months after I started the business. Her insight into what the customer wanted helped drive new development for CB products that then went on to become great successes. She is dynamic, motivational and strategic with an entrepreneurial spirit and is a great ally to have on your side
