In this group of courses we are going to build the business from the backend and stock your online shelves.

Launch and Sell

In this group of modules we're going to fine tune everything you've built and launch your business. We'll cover how to market effectively, how to stay safe when selling on any platform, and how to turn your customers into advocates for your business.

Deanna Thompson

After losing her website and over $1,500 dollars to an unscrupulous web developer, Deanna vowed to learn how to build her first luxury resale business by herself, not being beholden to anyone. There were highs and lows but through it all, she taught herself everything she needed to know about building the foundation for a strong business.

Quentin Caruana

Quentin Caruana built his first luxury resale consignment business 10 years ago and hasn't looked back since.
