“The secret to getting ahead is getting started.”
- Mark Twain
Wholesale can be a great additional revenue stream to your business, it can help you grow your brand by reaching a wider audience, it can free you up to work more on your business and even help you work more structured and streamline your sales.
With wholesale, you will sell larger volumes, tap into the retailer's audience that already trusts them and gets more repeat orders but it's not right for every business.
Selling to shops doesn't need to mean that you want to build a huge business, you can use wholesale to build a business that is sustainable to your lifestyle, whether that means having 5 or 500 stockists.
Do you ask yourself?
How do I know if wholesale is the right thing for my business?
How do I work out if I can make money selling wholesale? What do retail buyers expect?
Is my business ready to sell to shops? I'm already so busy, should I really add another thing to my to-do list now?
I'm really excited about the prospect of seeing my products in a store but I don't know where to start?
What does it all mean? I've spoken to a few shops and they asked for my line-sheet and terms and conditions?
I'm not a salesperson, I don't think I have the confidence to contact a potential stockist but I really believe in my products so what can I do?
Let me help you
I started this business to help business owners just like you. I want the high-street to be an exciting place to shop again. I want all the small and creative businesses I come across to do well and to grow and be seen and heard, by both independent buyers and larger retailers.
My mission is to help you overcome the doubt, your insecurities and to answer any questions you might have so you can make informed decisions for your business. There's absolutely no silly question!
I know that when you first start you might not be ready to make a big commitment which is why I've developed the below services for you.

45 or 90-minutes 1:1 online business mentoring to help you get started with your wholesale or to work on a specific challenge.
We will define what your next steps should be and make a plan how to make them happen, perfect if you need some clarity and motivation.
