A sampling of our successful consulting engagements.
Melanie has worked with LUELLE from the beginning as one of our most important advisors. Melanie's role has been imperative to the growth and success of our business, especially the building of our financial deck, a crucial blueprint for the financial health of our business. As creatives, finances are not our forte and Melanie has taken the time to thoroughly put together and explain it to us clearly so we fully understand. As for most entrepreneurs, meetings with investors are stressful but imperative to the growth and success of your company and without Melanie's guidance and preparation for these meetings we would be lost. Melanie always goes above and beyond to make sure we are comfortable with all business solutions. Without her guidance we would be lost.
We are the Founders of Vogue-backed skincare company 4AM Skin, and worked with Espeland Enterprises to build our fundraising pitch deck and accompanying financial model. We're a founding team made of an Instagram influencer with +100K followers and financial analyst turned marketing expert. Even with our robust backgrounds, Melanie brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. She worked with us to deeply understand our brand ethos and needs, aligning her work product to match our brand identity. We were thrilled with the outcome and re-hired Melanie for a second engagement focused on fundraising strategy and execution. Melanie's professionalism, flexibility, and deep knowledge of startups, fashion, and beauty make her and Espeland Enterprises stand out from the pack.
