"Think of this course like a boot camp. Give me blood, sweat and smarts for three months and I'll give you your first sale. Guaranteed. Or a full refund."– Janice Wilson, Founder and CEO of Arjuni
Lessons from the Trenches

The hair extensions game isn't for the faint-hearted. But with grit, smarts and creativity, you can absolutely make a good chunk of change --- if you avoid the pitfalls.
That's where I come in. I spent 8 years in Southeast Asia and was the first to manufacture and export hair extensions from Cambodia. Starting from scratch, I developed a brand that earned over $1 million a year. And I did it ethically. Arjuni was a named Asia's top social enterprise two years running.
Together, we'll go on a three month journey, during which I'll invite you to learn from my mistakes and leverage my successes. I'll give you the playbook I wish I had. Step by step. By the end of our journey, you'll have not only built the foundations of a rock, solid hair extensions business, but have captured your first sale.
What will the course cover?
If you're seeking a workshop to spend weeks and weeks developing a business plan that will likely never see the light of day, this isn't the course for you.
If you're seeking a collaborative program that gets you into the trenches on day one ,you've found your home.
- How to find customers and when you do, keep 'em
- Hair supplier booby traps and how to avoid 'em
- The perils, and legalities, of import and export
- The importance of unique brand building and how to find your own flavor
- Sales funnels that keep on giving
How much will this cost me?
$699. Hefty. But an amount that's easily covered by the first month of sales. If you know what you're doing.
What do I get out of it?
If you know anything about Arjuni, you know I don't do anything half ass. And I always lean exclusive. Each cohort is limited to 12 participants to ensure I can give each the individual support.
- 12 audio sessions. Working a second, or third job? Have kids? Or going to school? All the modules are portable and are digestable on the go.
- 12 assignments. Any successful business requires an investment that can at first seem daunting. But I give you weekly bite-size, but substantive, tasks to keep you on track.
- 12 live sessions for special topics. Each hair mogul in the making is encouraged to choose the Deep Dive of the Week, a live session to which all the participants are invited.
- Templates galore. Everything from hair supplier checklists to starter accounting worksheets.
- Private Slack channel. Solely for you and your motivated, invested cohort to collaborate, seek feedback and share hard fails as well as the earned triumphs.
