Top 4 Secrets Revealed


I know you are passionate about starting a skincare business and I’m pretty sure that you have realised that you are heading into a highly competitive industry full of pot holes and shiny objects. 

You know that this is a great time to sell natural skincare and that the market is growing month on month but you are also realising that navigating through all the pieces you need to learn about to ensure your business is successful can be at best overwhelming and at worst hugely expensive.

Having built three of my own six figure businesses I can tell you that the truth is that 20% of your effort will produce 80% of your results.  The secret is knowing what you should be focussing on when and how to manage both your time and money efficiently.

To do that you need expert resources, connections and advice.  

There's just one problem...

Achieving your goal is easier said than done

  • Here are some reasons why this stuff is hard. 
  • If you are a solo entrepreneur full of passion for your project it can feel really lonely out there.  You need an informed sounding board to help you keep on track.
  • Whilst you may have created the perfect skincare line building a solid base for your business requires a completely different mindset and skill package.
  • To succeed in the current climate you need a brand that is super special and aligned with your beliefs, resources and budget - being green, climate friendly and organic is nowhere near enough anymore.
  • The investment required to reach your goal is considerable you need help determining who the right people to go to are for your branding, manufacturing, marketing and selling. There are lots of compelling services on offer many of which you DON'T need !

Here's the truth:

It doesn't have to be this way

Because I have been coaching skincare entrepreneurs for over twenty years I have a solid understanding about what you need to know/do in order to build a successful business and I have put together a whole suite of programmes that can help you no matter where you are on your journey.  Each programme is packed with informed know how, inspiration and hard, constructive facts learned from real life experience.  I believe I am the only skincare mentor out there who has actually built a skincare business herself and I know exactly what you are going through, not just professionally but also the personal challenge involved when you are stepping outside your comfort zone.  The fact is there is no reason why you should know all this stuff but when you don't know how to navigate a new industry it is hugely important, time saving and cost effective to have someone by your side who does.   My clients will tell you that working with me is a no fluff experience but I would like you to hear this directly from them......


My Programmes



Skincare Business Kickstarter

Are you worried about navigating the entrepreneurial journey alone? If you join my group Kickstarter programme you'll have me by your side as your mentor, guiding you through all the steps you need to take to successfully launch your skincare business.

Every 2 weeks for 4 months, we have 60-90 minute live webinars and chat sessions to make sure the foundation of your business is rock solid (and of course they’ll be recorded so you can always rewatch or catch up).  You will also have workbooks, spreadsheets and PDFs to keep you on track and well organised.

No more costly missteps or feeling overwhelmed. No more procrastination or crippling doubt. Whenever you hit a fork in the road, you’ll have me and our community to help you out. Plenty of opportunity to pick my brain. A private Facebook group where you can chat with me and learn from others who are on the same journey as you.

This program offers you the chance to finally achieve lift-off for your business. And if you want to do a thorough deep-dive into your personal challenges (and their solutions), you can book the gold option for even more one-to-one time with me.

Sue Campbell

Working with Melinda helped me clarify my strategy, target customer and products through a series of actionable steps that set me on the right path to launching my business. Her approach is both creative and pragmatic, by asking thought provoking questions she instinctively knows when to challenge and when to support – this saved me from making mistakes which would have cost both time and money. The depth of experience Melinda has in all aspects of running a skincare business and the insight this brings is invaluable for anyone who is serious about building a brand.

Hanna Tisserand
The Tisserand Institute


Meeting Melinda in France was one of the best business decisions Robert and I have ever made! Our brainstorming session was truly transformational. We went to France knowing we have a solid idea somewhere, but with serious doubts as to whether we can ever make it into a sustainable operation. Getting out of our office and into the French countryside was exactly what we needed.
In the space of a few hours spent in a former convent, now cozy boutique hotel, we not only found a way out of a business dead end, but left with many solid actionable ideas and a newly found determination. Our investment in the trip paid off many
times over and Melinda’s guidance was (and still is) en pointe!

Meet your coach

Hi, I'm Melinda

When I started my entrepreneurial journey I was a single mum with three, under twos, very little education and no money.  I built my businesses because that was my only choice but as a serial entrepreneur, author of 32 internationally published books, living in the South of France with three six figure businesses under my belt I can tell you it was a great choice !   

I live with Doris, (my very large poodle), four cats and two chickens who often attend my coaching sessions. I am also a grandma to seven and a matriarch/taskmaster/friend and supporter to all my clients whom, without exception, I adore.  When it comes to building a skincare business, believe me I know my stuff and I am tough, pragmatic, informed and fully invested in my clients' successes.   My sweet spot is the ability to set you up with a strategy, connections, creative ideas, practical know how and, most importantly the mindset to succeed.
