Consulting Services

Beauty Business + Career Consulting

Denver-based but internationally accessible, let us boost your beauty business and/or career with our high level of beauty industry experience. We help develop your ideas and vision, direct your strategy, and assist in implementation. Choose from a variety of topics that align with your needs and create an entirely customized consulting experience. There are no one-size-fits-all solutions and therefore our consulting packages are all individually designed on a case-by-case basis.

CBD/Hemp Business Consulting

While some companies need a website, branding, social media assistance, or just general exposure through search engines – others only need the right connections, business planning, or strategic direction. Lucky for you, we can help with all of the above. Cannabis and hemp consulting services are available for those in the legal THC and CBD industry.
