START YOUR OWN NATURAL & ORGANIC SKINCARE BUSINESS

6-9 p.m. - Upper West Side, New York, NY

Start Your Own Natural & Organic Skincare Business
A Mastermind Group Session with Marla Bosworth

Fall is right around the corner, and that means the profitable fourth quarter (holiday sales!) is too. This is a perfect time to start or commit to growing your natural soap and skincare business.
This workshop is what I wish I had when I started my skincare business back in the '90s. By the end of class you'll have a clearer understanding of the value you are personally bringing to your beauty brand. I will also help you get focused on the products you are selling, their price points, your target customer base and how to build sales, and much more. This workshop will save you days, months and possibly years of trying to figure this out on your own.
