Most of my work is designed around helping people build service-based businesses – where what you offer is your expertise, your knowledge and your time with someone to help them with their health.
But invariably even when we run service-based businesses, there are products we recommend to our customers to further enhance the work we do together. Whether it’s supplements, clothing, a specific yoga mat, a journal or a candle – these are all products we could be making money from ourselves, but usually don’t have a clue where to start.
This is where Nicole, the Buyer & Retail Coach comes in. Helping people that have a seed of an idea to add a product into their offering, right through to established product-based businesses launch new offerings, Nicole has bags of experience.
Nicole’s own successes and failures both in her corporate retail jobs and as a business owner (including a massive pile of €10 shoes no-one was buying!) and how important having a plan and moving with her ideal customer was vital. Knowing what you want to be, do and have in the future is more than enough of a plan to get started.
