Days 1-30 – Think It
The first 30 days for each mentee will vary depending on the phase of their business. We will spend this time fine-tuning/developing your idea to move you into building your idea properly in your industry. The question for days 1-30 is “How viable is my idea?”
Each mentee during the first 30 days will:
Develop a Business Canvas
Learn proper vocabulary and language to use in their industry
Research their industry, competitors, collaborators, and potential partners
Learn the proper way to incorporate their business
*This stage could be longer than 30 days if Care sees fit. You will only move into the next stage once she feels your idea is fully understood and viable.*
Meeting 1: The Tell
Care will listen to your business idea and gain an understanding of where you are in the development stage of your business. You will begin your business canvas and start to put your business on paper. Care will craft a timeline specific to you for the remainder of the mentorship program if needed.
Email communication will be essential during the first 30 days.
Days 31-60 – Build It
Develop a 6-month timeline for your business
Choose and begin to develop/enhance your e-commerce platform of choice learn CEO/Owner basics and fundamentals
Meeting 2: The When
This meeting will most often focus on taking your business canvas into the business development stage. You will use your canvas to develop a 6-month timeline specific to where you are currently in your business and where you are trying to go in the next 6 months. You will also spend some time determining and learning the fundamentals of your role in your company.
This stage will require you to report in on progress as you move through assigned projects.
Days 61-90 – Brand It

Learn basic email tactics to acquire customers and promote your product/service

Meeting 3: The How/The Send Off (1.5 hour meeting)
This meeting will incorporate taking your business canvas, your 6-month timeline, and your role in your business into the proper way to personally and professionally begin to brand your business.
This meeting will be a “take in a lot of information” meeting. Care will share the very basics of email, social media, and PR processes that help you “look” like an attractive business to engage, gain and increase customers. This meeting should happen at least 10 days prior to the end of the 90-day program to allow for proper follow up and a successful transition out of the mentorship program should you choose to end your mentorship or advance into another program.
“The Basics” mentorship program with Care Monique is not a program that will help you completely build your Business Model or develop your Pitch Deck. This program is a short intensive that will help you get your idea out of your head and onto paper, into the developmental phases, and help you create a foundation for starting/excelling.
