Let's build your business together!

We've been trying some new strategies to make the live mentorship more accessible to more people. 

With multiple shorter mentorship blocks targeting specific topics, you can sign up only for the parts that you need!

Live mentorship sessions are offered on the third Saturday of every month from noon - 4pm eastern time on different topics - see the upcoming session and the entire list of topics and dates below! 

This month's session is on Saturday April 20th from noon to 4pm eastern time.

We'll be reviewing the GMP warning letters so that you can feel confident that your website and social media are up to date with the regulations!

 

We'll be referencing the course materials in the Herbal Business Program, so make sure you're enrolled there before you sign up for any of the Mentorship sessions.

You don't have to already have a business to enroll - these sessions can help you fine-tune your current business or support you as you build from the ground up! 

Live mentorship sessions are open to all women enrolled in the Herbal Business Program.

Required Materials

Each session has worksheets for you to do ahead of time to prepare you. There is also a list of things you should have ready - for example, if we're going to talk about GMP and Product Labels, it's good to have your label ideas with you, and if you don't have ideas yet, at least have a list of your products.

You don't have to figure out what you need to be prepared - every time you register for a session, you'll get a specific list: just check each item off and you're ready!


The Herbal Business Program is the companion to these mentorship sessions - all of the course materials are housed there.  

You can think of the Herbal Business Program like the "textbook" that we'll be using for these Live Mentorship Sessions!

If you haven't already, enroll in the Herbal Business Program here so that you have access to the course materials for this mentorship. 


Each monthly session has a specific list of lessons from the Herbal Business Program to review before the session (including an emergency list for "ack, i ran out of time, what's the minimum i need to get ready???")

How to Register:

You can sign up for one Mentorship Session at a time with the button below. You can take as many as you like, but registration is only open for the immediately upcoming session.

Registration for the next session will open as soon as the previous session has ended.

Each session has a maximum of ten participants so that everyone has time to get all their questions answered.

You don't have to do them all! Only sign up for the ones that are going to be helpful for you!

*right now, we're focusing on empowering women in business. 
in the future we'll open up co-ed sessions as well, but for now these sessions are open to women only.

Make sure you are also enrolled in the Herbal Business Program - that's the "textbook" for our work together! All your preparation materials (and so much more!) are housed there!

How to Attend:

When you register, go ahead and open the course - there are preparation materials inside, as well as the link for the live session, so open it up right away!

Take a look at the preparation materials and plan some time so that you can work through them before our session together.

The preparation materials will get you thinking and help you assemble everything you'll need to get the most out of the session.

On the day of the session, click the live link button at noon eastern time - and don't forget to make yourself some tea and snacks! :-)

Mentorship Session April 20th, 2024

GMP Warning Letter Review :: noon - 4pm eastern time

The GMP & FTC guidelines are just the start - they provide the framework that agents are using to determine what is in violation and what is not. But - it's important to know that they're not set in stone: the guidelines are broad and subject to interpretation. 

In the end, to be "compliant" and pass inspection, you have to stay up to date with the current interpretation - not just the original guidelines. 

The only way to do that is to review the Warning Letters - these are legal documents in which the FDA/FTC are explicitly telling you what things are violations and which are not. 

Let's get up to date!

In this session, we'll look at a selection of recent Warning Letters, so that we can see what they're issuing violations for. Then we'll look at your online materials and make sure that you don't have any of that stuff!

You'll also learn shortcuts - fast ways to search your website, and how to get notifications for all Warning Letters and to get through them faster.

We'll set up some systems for you so that you get this taken care of automatically every quarter. 

And we'll do it all together - which is way more fun that hacking at it alone!


These are the things you should bring with you to this session:

  • Your website.
  • Your labels (or the labels you're planning). 
  • Your social media/youtube/etc.
  • Any other stuff that you're saying on the internet.
  • If you don't have some of these things yet it's ok - it's never too soon to start updating your understanding of GMP based on what they've been identifying as violations lately!
  • And fill out the preparation worksheet (in the course) and bring that to the session as well!

Don't forget some tea and snacks for yourself! It's easier to think and be creative if you've got some nice treats :-)
