I have worked with Melody Bockelman for the past month as a coach for my new skin care line, AlmondClear, and I have been extremely happy with her services. I cannot recommend Melody highly enough.
The advice that she gave me was specific, strategic, and came from a wealth of experience working in the beauty and private label industries. I never felt like Melody took a one-size-fits-all approach, instead she really listened to the needs of my business and tailored her recommendations accordingly.
If you are thinking about starting a beauty business or have already started one, then working with Melody will be time and money well spent. After working with her, I have my business plan squared away, I have a multi-tiered marketing strategy ready to roll out, my products are ready to order at great prices, and I have a strong running-start on my launch. I am a former teacher who is new to the business world, so having such a firm foundation for my business would have been nearly impossible without Melody’s help.
Here’s a sample of the topics on which she advised me:
How many products to launch with, and how to prioritize which products are most important, competitive research, specific strategic advice about why my particular products would do well selling on Amazon as well as my own website, and she gave me resources for learning how to sell on Amazon, how to spend money within my budget, and gave me ways to save money, sales funnels, and wholesale distribution.
Melody gave me excellent general advice on what mistakes to avoid, what to prioritize, how to stay focused, and how to schedule my time.
The above list is just a small sample of the topics that we covered in only one month of coaching! After that month, I was armed with confidence, knowledge, and a detailed game plan. Melody’s coaching exceeded my expectations across the board.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Aside from deciding to dive into this endeavor, my best decision by far has been to work with you! You know what “I don’t know that I don’t know,” and I really appreciate your expertise and input.

Melody is one of those rare business minds that can see your venture holistically and has both the depth and breadth of expertise to help you build a strong foundation. She also brings the supportive, encouraging demeanor of a coach that empowers you to achieve all of your goals. Working with Melody and PLI has accelerated my own business in a very short time and built my confidence immeasurably. Without her I’d probably still be cold calling suppliers and getting nowhere in the process. Now, with her on my team, I have no doubt that my business can be massively successful.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for everything we were able to talk about during our phone conversation!! We are very grateful for accommodating our questions and eagerness to get started on our project. I’m sure there will be many more opportunities to speak as we begin our exciting new venture. There aren’t enough ‘thank you’s’ to communicate what an amazing service you offer through your website and through personal phone communication for those who are wanting break into the beauty and hair care industry! I look forward to speaking with you again!!
