WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I have had a few mentoring sessions with Melissa from Thelotco and they have been amazing. Melissa has helped me in all areas of my small business from retail and wholesale sales strategies to product pricing, tips on reaching a wider audience and also has helped me with advertising/marketing content and planning. She has given me strategies in regards to negotiating future collaborations and has introduced me to the options available when I look at expanding to the international market in the future. She has helped me set achievable goals and has also fine-tuned parts of my business that I had previously worked on to make sales more streamlined. When you're working on your own business it is so easy to get stuck on the little things so it's nice to have someone there help you see the bigger picture, to listen, provide you with honest answers and to hold you accountable. She is also just a genuinely lovely person. I can't recommend Thelotco highly enough ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
