"AMAZING PROGRAM, AMAZING SERVICE. This is a MUST HAVE process for any CPG start ups!!" I LOVED how organized Caroline was and how we always had action items clearly outlined for our brand, and for her.¬† I learned everything about wholesale, allowing us to manage it ourselves‚ÄĒa great investment. Results? We got into several small chain stores (20-60 locations) and Chewy.com, as well as becoming a winner of Purina's 2024 Pet Care Innovation Prize. We have a pitch deck, sell sheet, and products ready for retail. I cannot express how thankful I am to Caroline for teaching me the in's and out's of wholesale. For my new brand, it was WORTH EVERY PENNY!!"

‚Äď Samantha McConnell,¬†RYERCAT

Seeductive Foods

"I really enjoyed the one-on-one aspect of working through the program. As a solo entrepreneur, plagued with decision fatigue, our weekly meetings were incredibly helpful to talk through ideas or strategy. Caroline helped me nail down my brand positioning and messaging for retail sales, and after the program, I had a script to reach out to buyers. This led to an increase in interest, especially on Faire, and opened doors with major retailers. I gained confidence in my approach to selling and speaking with buyers. Plus, Caroline is a great cheerleader and felt like I finally had a teammate. I got my money's worth and would recommend others to work with Caroline!"

I enjoyed getting her expert opinion on necessary steps for OUR business and all the insight about the industry and learning how things work within the world of CPG products."
