A no fluff, no nonsense, comprehensive step by step guide to exactly what you need to do to get started on your soap making business right now.
Includes my 14 must do's - 3 of which are absolute non negotiables.
I cover everything from niche, selling platforms and pricing to wholesale and customer service. You will hear how I grew a part time soap making business from £0 to £48k turnover with a £500 initial investment. What I learnt along the way, what I feel is important - and what is not!
You will also receive a step by step guide to Making it Happen. What to do and in what order. This takes away all the worry about where to start and will help you focus on the most important points.
This part consists of 2 further eBooks - and if you have seen any of my previous eBooks you will know they are beautifully presented - as well as a further video of me taking very candidly about my own experiences.
Who is it NOT for?
Anyone not in the UK. The rules around selling soap vary so much from country to country. Whilst the legislation we are governed by also applies to the EU I am also well aware that some EU countries have additional requirements such as manufacturing space away from domestic kitchens and I am not able to comment on these.
This Soap Business Boot Camp is not for beginner soap makers, I have other courses for learning to make soap and it is not covered in this course at all. There is an expectation that you are a competant soap maker and ready to step it up to the next level.
It does not cover how to do all the technical aspects, ie setting up a website, marketing, social media, emails. There are plenty of people out there who specialise in each of those areas for good reason - each one is a huge topic in it's own right plus technology changes so rapidly.
What The Soap Business Boot Camp DOES do is short cut the length of time it will take to get your business off the ground. No Google rabbit holes. Just clear instructions. You will still have to put the work in, I cannot do that for you and there will be days when you feel you are taking 1 step forwards and 2 back. Starting any business is always a challenge but it is all doable.
Access to the internet and a device to watch the video content on and read the accompanying books. Ideally a PC, lap top or tablet.
A great attitude and can do mindset 😉
