From Beginner To Boss has been a dream of mine for years. It started out with Closet Full of Cash and wanting to create a hub or should I say a Community for people to learn and receive support in the luxury resale industry. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity through Marque Luxury to build Marque Mentor that was the first iteration of my idea but there were things missing and as of October 1, 2022, the support aspect of Mentor was closed down which was a bummer for myself and also the members. So, I took that as a sign to build the platform that I envisioned and here we are!
My goal in From Beginner To Boss is to create an education and support space where you can learn what you need to know to open your own luxury resale business and receive support from advisors and peers who have the experience to help.
The Community is a continuation from Marque Mentor and like that, is on Slack. This is where all communication is done and I am available basically seven days a week to share content, answer questions and more. Broken down by channels, you can post images or questions and receive a real time response from trusted advisors.
