I love that I always have someone to turn to. Mel is amazing. She not only knows so much about the actual business side of things - but just as importantly, she knows how I'm feeling throughout the learning. She's been where I am at every step of my journey too and that is what makes me drawn to her. The extended group of amazing business owners is sweet icing on the cake.

She keeps us all focussed on achieving the best results to reach our goals with all her tricks of the trade.  It is also reassuring to know that we have like minded businesses who have the same struggles and Mel is always there to guide us in the right direction.  She keeps is all feeling positive and at the end of the each meeting we always feel inspired and ready to put into practice everything we have learned.  Thank you Mel you are amazing!

Amazing help, tips and advice (most importantly it is practical
and realistic to implement)!!

Belonging to this group has made me more focussed on growing our business rather than just coping with the ever growing list of day to day type tasks- I don't often get to the meetings in real time but I always look forward to watching and allocating time (even while travelling) to watch and implement.  I always feel energised and ready to sink my teeth into whatever's next!! Thank you Mel!!!

- Belinda, Chasing Springtime

Mel provided me with direction, clarity, and a sense of calm and excitement all at the same time. Calm, because I knew which steps to take and how and when to take them. Excitement, because I could see the direction I needed to move in and how it would open doors to greater success.

I love how Melissa explains things so clearly and make things that seem complicated feel much more do-able. I feel a lot more confident and able to tackle the socials, branding and online store creation for my business. You are sooooo good at explaining the logic of how successful brands visually structure their online presence to increase sales. Love your work!

questions

frequently asked

So many of my 1 on 1 clients wanted something more. They wanted to keep working together but were not sure how much time they could commit or could not afford a full time Business Coach. I was also covering the same topics with so many of Retailers that thought I should it with many!!  This price make sit super affordable for start ups those who can only pop in every couple of months to catch up.

The Masterclasses will be about Marketing and Content planning (social media, edm's, facebook ads and strategy), Buying (what to buy and when), How to increase sales and traffic for your B& M and Online store, Motivation and Mindset, Time Management, Retail trends, Working with staff and VA's and so much more.

Absolutely. The Membership is all about Retail and how to manage it, grow it and love it. You can have a Bricks and Mortar store or a Brand with Ecommerce Retail.

For sure. There will be stages and all levels of knowledge and skill sets. We will be working through lots of essential principles of Retail as well as extending to really push your knowledge and learning latest developments and trends in the industry.

If you pay monthly you will need to give 14 days notice prior to the payment date to cancel your subscription.

If you wish to rejoin the Membership you will need to wait util the doors reopen and you will start again on the current monthly price (this will be increasing each round).

If you have paid annually you have 7 days from purchase to cancel your subscription. No requests to cancel after 7 days of purchase will be accepted.

Each Masterclass will be very practical and have detailed information about implementation. There will also be the chance in Q & A to clarify information and ask others in the group.

This is about learning new skills in a practical and easy to implement way without overwhelm.

You will need approx 1-3 hours per month to implement tasks. Sometimes more, sometimes less. The Masterclasses will not be hours long and stress you out. That is the opposite of what this should be about!

This is about being able to share the information with so many at once. By completing the Masterclasses in a group environment it keeps it affordable for everyone. A 1 on 1 session with Mel starts at $995 .
