12-week group program to get you started selling to shops with confidence

Collaborate to build your dream

Find a community to help you build a business that suits you and that allows you to scale in a sustainable way and with confidence.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
--  Margaret Mead

A 12-week program to get you started selling to shops with the support of a group of like-minded business owners who understand that working together and supporting each other will get them there quicker than if they did it all on their own.


Set your prices, create your sales material and learn how to sell in a way suitable to you and your personality. You don’t have to be an extrovert to succeed in wholesale, making thoughtful and intentional approaches can get you just as far if not further.

We all have very busy lives and as small business owners, we have an ever-growing, never-ending to-do list. It’s easy to put planning and learning to the bottom of the list, this group coaching program will allow you to take the time you need to focus on the growth of your business rather than just working in your business.


During our 12 weeks together, I will teach you everything you need to know to start selling to shops, you will develop your sales material, set prices that will allow you to grow and learn who to approach and how to go about it. This is a fast-track program and by week 8 you will start to approach potential stockists suitable to your business. Beyond this, we will continue with the learning alongside you approaching and hopefully securing your first stockist.


The group will be small with a maximum of 8 spaces available. Together we will keep each other accountable throughout.

I’m Therese, I help small product-based businesses with their wholesale. I work with businesses that are just starting out and those who already wholesale but need some guidance and help to get the results that they want.


I am so excited about this group program, it’s exactly why I decided to start this business, I want to help small businesses take the next step in their business with confidence. I believe in community, collaboration and creativity and believe that together we can achieve so much more than on our own.


I've worked in the home & gift industry for over a decade selling to both big and small retailers such as Liberty, Selfridges, Conran,, Topshop, WHSmith, as well as hundreds of independent retailers up and down the country so I’m hugely passionate about the retail sector and products in general

  • You’re already selling on your own website and/or on third party market places and/or craft/design fairs.

  • You have a product range to sell.

  • You are serious about starting to wholesale this year and willing to make a commitment to get going. Even if it means re-arranging your other commitments over the next 3 months to give you the time you need to show up and doing the work.

  • You might have already sold to a few local stockists but not sure of what to do next or you’re not getting the result that you would have hoped for.

  • Believe in and live by: Community over competition.

  • Like learning in a group environment and giving and receiving support from the group excites you.

  • Need help to stay accountable.

  • You do not believe in the hype around “build your 6-figure business in 6 months”, this doesn’t mean that you don’t want a successful business, but that success to you means a business that is sustainable to your life and your goals.



  • For the business owner who already has an established wholesale business. My 1:1 bespoke session  would be more suitable for you.

  • Those who wants to make a quick and easy profit, wholesale is great as part of your growth strategy but it’s not instant money in the bank and it does require lots of work.

  • If you’re not a team-player, or you prefer to work on your own. You can still work with me on a 1:1 basis.  

  • You don’t have the time to show up every week and offer support to the other group members, 1:1 mentoring might suit you better. You can read more about that here.

  • You don’t trust others and you’re not open to sharing any information with the others in the group.



This is an intensive and fast-paced program and to get the most out of it you need to dedicate 8-10 hours a week on your wholesale business. You will get the most out of it if you attend the sessions live but if life gets in the way there will be a catch-up option. As with more training programs, the more you put into it the more successful it will be for you.


If you can’t make this commitment but you still want to work with me, please have a look at my 1:1 service's or get in touch to discuss how we can work together.


The program is currently closed, join the wait list to find out when enrollment opens up again.
