They will tell one everything needed to know and hear, and it will all be honest and straightforward. The hour-long consultation will begin with a fifteen-minute slot to pitch the brand concept; this may include ideas surrounding nails, beauty or cosmetics. It will then enable both Ruby and Millie, and Guests to spend the next forty-five minutes breaking it down and reflecting with constructive advice on what the next steps to take are and how you can improve your initial idea to make the brand marketable and saleable. The idea of these sessions will be for the visitor to leave with all the useful instruction to contribute to moving the brand forwards in the right direction and helping it to grow and expand successfully.
