Lauren contacted WBC seeking some support from a mentor as she had an impending business meeting to attend.
Mentor: Yemi Lawal
Mentee: Lauren Edwards
Company: Yves Homemade
She wanted to chat to a mentor about how best to present herself and her business, and thus how to price her products. WBC put Lauren in touch with Yemi, and from this contact, Yemi and Lauren spent several hours over the next few weeks chatting through ideas over the phone. Lauren said, ‘the scheme gave me insight about what areas I need to focus on and those that I need to highlight within my business. I’ve achieved a lot more confidence with my business idea and concept, I‘ve even managed to secure my first order to a local café.’
The mentoring relationship between the two continues, with Lauren catching up with Yemi to update her on her progress and to set next steps for the business together.
Lauren went onto say that ‘I have definitely benefitted from the scheme and would recommend it to anybody wanting help with their business ‘.
