Beginner to Brand Workshop working with you one to one in the studio based in Derbyshire.
Please contact me to check on available dates.
So, you want to build your Home Fragrance brand.
In times where everything is very competitive, you have to get ahead of the game, you are ambitious, creative and ready for change. Now more than ever is the right time to start your new venture.
“You don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great” (Zig Ziglar)
My workshops aren't to fast-track you, becoming a chandler takes time and experience but what I can do is help you build your brand, with guidance and the experience I already have, eliminating a lot of the mistakes made in the early days, that cost too much time and money. We will explore the many different types of wax and the difference between using essential oils v fragrance oils, plus so much more.
I have a background in Technical Training, my workshops will give you so much information but in a way that everyone can understand.
You will leave with motivation, confidence and eagerness to succeed. I will be there for you ongoing afterwards, to answer questions, be a sounding board, help with confidence and anything else.
Maybe you already have your business but are in a rut, or you need help to take it to the next level. Then my workshops are for you too.

Introduction - what's your idea, your niche, your hopes and desires

Response from The Scent Styling Company:Thank you for your kind words Lisa, looking forward to seeing your business grow.
I really enjoyed my time with Jane I left the session feeling really confident and ready to get started. I had learnt things that I didn’t even know about which was really useful and helped me not waste any time. The legal side was really informative and I was given a booklet to take home so I can always refer back to this. The sandwiches and teas throughout the day were excellent great service. Will be definitely keeping in contact with Jane for my future development would highly recommend this course for anyone thinking about doing this. Just go for it!! Thanks again Jane.
Response from The Scent Styling Company:Thank you Amy for your lovely words, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you and I’m really excited to see your business flourish, you are going to be great!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Jane it wasn't like being on a course at all she was so friendly and approachable right from the start . She was easy to talk to and I felt I could ask her questions, she was so helpful and and at the end I had a clear idea on what to do next in setting up my own business. She has promised to keep in touch to see how I'm getting on and has said I can contact her for further advice. When I left I had the feeling that she genuinely wants me succeed.
I would recommend this course especially for the branding legal side of things which she explained so even I could understand them ! Thank you Jane for a brilliant day.
Response from The Scent Styling Company:Thank you Jo for such lovely words, it really was a pleasure to spend the day with you.
