About Our Presenter

Our presenter is Lela Barker, founder and creative director at Bella Luccè in Columbia, South Carolina, CEO of Lucky Break Consulting, and the author of 155 Words You Need To Know: Practical Wisdom For Creative Entrepreneurs. Lela started Bella Luccè, in the tiny kitchen of an 800 square foot house. Today, Lela works from a 7500 square foot facility making products that have hit the shelves in more than 1,000 spas worldwide, from LA to Duba to Africa. Lela knows how to run a cosmetics business, and you will have her all to yourself of an entire day in a small group.

Visit Bella Luccè. Visit Lucky Break Consulting.

Detailed labeling and GMP and SOP handouts are included, along with templates you can use in "fill-in-the-blank" fashion for your company!

All soap and cosmetics companies must comply with the same regulations. The tiniest startup is expected to follow the same rules as the largest manufacturers. While any soap and cosmetics companies of all sizes will come away from this event with everything they need, the curriculum will be especially geared toward handmade entrepreneurs who are manufacturing in very small spaces as solepreneurs or with a very tiny staff. It's all about empowering you to run your business efficiently and with the peace of mind you need to advance with confidence.

We'll bring all the goodies to the event on January 12th and you can browse through the treasure box to pick your favorite!

Is there a mod for the new EU compliance? I missed a success call about it.

HI Ellen,

We just processed your order. Information was sent to you via email at your PayPal email address. Thank you, and let me know by reply email if you have any questions!


Comment by Ellen Holder on June 18, 2013 at 9:37pm

Can't wait to receive this!  I paid with PayPal but just realized that I hadn't signed in to this site first! Will it find me?  Hope so!! Looking forward to getting started while on vacation. (sigh...the life of an entrepreneur...:)

Hi Alaina: Thanks for your note. It's being offered again as of right now, so if you have not registered before, now is a good time to get in on the GMP action. We just finished up one of our bi-monthly coaching calls and people are making tons of progress and having fun learning together. It's so much more fun and productive to tackle this stuff in a group than to hammer it out all by yourself! Just click the payment link above to get in on the goods!

Comment by Alaina B Simcoe Toadpipe on February 27, 2013 at 6:57pm

Hello, this group is a total gem!  I would be very interested in the bootcamp the next time it's offered.  Thought I'd just put my vote in!  Cheers

Comment by IBN Member Lela Barker - Bella Lucce on February 20, 2013 at 3:39pm

I am throwing virtual glitter on you Kristie- thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. It is a LOT of information and GMP compliance is a sizable undertaking, but I'm so thrilled by how many entrepreneurs are rising to the challenge and I'm pleased to hear this program proved helpful on your journey. I'll be cheering you on as you grow!

Comment by dM, CEO on February 20, 2013 at 10:30am

Thank you for that glowing testimonial, Kristie! We are thrilled to hear that Indie Beauty Business Regulatory Boot Camp has served you well. I have watched Tilvee grow by leaps and bounds over the past few years, and it always makes me smile. I'm even more excited now, because I know that the information shared through this program is poised to help you take it even higher. Go Kristie!

Congratulations on all of your success, and go!

PS - Wine is can be such a good thing :)

Comment by Kristie McNamara on February 18, 2013 at 12:14pm

Thank you so much Donna Maria and Lela! I Loved every minute and every slide of it (yes, even the tedious ones that gave me the urge to pour another glass of wine:). Every single topic is something I have to think about almost daily in our growing business. So now I feel the format you delivered the information in helps me to better organize, plan and implement a system that will make us tip top efficient and prepared. You made it easy to follow and gave an immense amount of resources and step by step direction. I really appreciate this class and glad I decided to go ahead with it! You all are the best!!

Lydia, We do not have a record of your order. Please email us at indiebusiness@gmail.com with your phone number so we can take care of you.

Hello ,I would like to know if I have completed the payment via credit card .I have started to do the registation but I am not sure if I managed to complete the process.Thank you so much for your kind attention .Lydia

Comment by IBN Member Lela Barker - Bella Lucce on January 23, 2013 at 2:53pm

Yea Marilene! I am so happy you're finding it helpful and I am thrilled that you don't mind our breakneck speed. :)

I have heard from several of you that have already registered with the VCRP program, I've seen pictures you've posted of yourselves rocking the GMP gear while in production and I've heard chatter about your fancy new tables and storage containers and I'm watching you hammer away on that digital class day after day as you log in and view it time and time again. I'm cheering you on every step of the way!

Comment by Marilene Richardson on January 23, 2013 at 2:10pm

I am really appreciating all of the work that went in to this class. The information is awesome. I think it is great that Lela spoke so fast. She got a lot covered. I have listened to it several times. It is reassuring to know I was already well on my way in regard to GMP. As a sole proprietor with no employees, this is something that was hard for me to determine on my own. Taking this class was very much like having a partner come in and say, "so now that you are this far, here's what you still have to do." Thanks again!

Comment by Leann Pass on January 23, 2013 at 1:11pm

Ah! I found it in my Junk Box - 1st time anything from IBN went there. I am looking forward to this info and sharing with my employees!

Comment by dM, CEO on January 23, 2013 at 1:03pm

@Leann, they were email to you hours ago. Please double check your inboxes. If you cannot find them, email me at indiebusiness@gmail.com and I will help you.

Comment by Leann Pass on January 23, 2013 at 12:54pm

I just purchased this morning. When can i expect to receive the files?

Comment by dM, CEO on January 19, 2013 at 4:23pm
I'm so excited about the number of people (especially our IBN members) who are taking advantage of this information. The feedback is phenomenal, thanks for sharing it everyone!
Comment by dM, CEO on January 17, 2013 at 10:26pm

Cherish, by the way, we did anticipate this, so we addressed it on Question #10 of the FAQ: http://indiebusinessnetwork.net/page/regulatory-boot-camp-faq-by-in... Thanks again!

Comment by dM, CEO on January 17, 2013 at 10:25pm

Thank you for sharing that, Cherish. It's a fact of tech life that things don't act the same on all browsers. I'm glad you mentioned that so others can see that it's just a matter of changing the browser, and that there's nothing wrong with the material or their computers! Thanks again!

Comment by Cherish Driskell on January 17, 2013 at 7:21pm

Just a FYI side note for those who use Windows 8 (32 or 64 bit versions) I could not get the audio to work in the Chrome browser with Windows 8, but I have no audio problems with Internet Explorer in Windows 8 :) ... hope this helps if anyone else ran into the same problem.
