Nelly owns a business selling handbags, belts, and accessories for women. Because of the pandemic, her sales were very low. She was getting very discouraged. She didn’t have a plan for business growth, and she didn’t even know where to start. She was keeping some business records, but she didn’t know what to do with them or how to learn from them to improve her business.
A friend at her church told her about Mentors International and the courses that they provide.
Nelly completed the business mentoring course and the Keystone Personal Development course. She also completed all of her 40-hours of service. Nelly was a model student and didn’t miss one class. She applied all of the lessons personally and professionally.
Nelly shared with us that because of the mentoring she received she was able to replace the negative feelings with positive thoughts and a positive attitude. Nelly feels that the Keystone course provided her with the necessary tools to reinvent herself. She now has the confidence to take on challenges when they arise.
Her mentor Jesus worked with her one-on-one to keep better business records. She learned how to better manage inventory and rotate her stock. She learned cross-selling strategies so that she could sell more to her current clients. She started listening to her clients and focusing on providing what they need and want.
Nelly has assigned herself a salary out of her income, and she has budgeted funds to go towards improving her business thanks to the principles taught by her mentor. She has almost doubled her income to about $700 a month AND she is saving for the future. Before she didn’t have much savings, and she was always using it. TODAY she has $300 in savings.
Nelly says that she has infinite gratitude towards Mentors International and their teachers and Mentors. “I am not the same as before, I can say that I am better thanks to Mentors International.”
