In our multiple decades of working with products, we’ve done business in the United States, Canada, China, Hong Kong, the Czech Republic, Germany, India, Mexico, and the Bahamas. There have been some minor failures but there have been many extraordinary successes. One product sold $2.5 million dollars during the first year. Another line even sold $300 million in three years!
A client from this exact training program grew from selling in 1 store to 1,400 stores in 14 months at 8x the profit margin.
All that is great but my FAVORITE MOMENT EVER was standing in the cash register line at a huge store and seeing someone buy my design! It was beautifully surreal after 7 months of design and development.
There was something about watching her pick up one of our pendants and compare it to a competitors’. Then she put OURS in her shopping cart and went to the cash register!!! Whoo-hoo!!!!
Somehow it made me feel excited and yes, a bit proud. Like I had proven something to myself. Now, you can feel that sense of accomplishment, too.
When I asked myself what made all those successes possible, along with the right product, it came down to our commitment, the strategy we designed, and the team.
Many products struggle to get off the ground because the business really doesn’t have a plan or road map for their product. Frequently, there is simply too much being done in the wrong order or missing completely!
The problem shows up in brand new businesses and well-established companies, too.
A new client was referred to us when they were already selling $15 million dollars per year. They had just lost $400,000 on a new product launch. That painful experience showed them a big hole in their new product strategy.
We worked with the executive team, picked new product direction, streamlined the product lines and installed product development processes.
When we asked why they invested in working with us, the company's CEO wisely said, “We worked with you because you see way more businesses and what works, than we ever will. We’re inside our own bubble. Obviously what we were doing wasn’t going to get us where we wanted to go.”
Let’s be real. Working alone is long, hard, frustrating work. It grinds the human spirit down until you wonder, “Is it worth it? Can I really do this?”
Secondly, you know trial and error is an expensive way to learn. You will end up reinventing the wheel countless times. Each time you make a mistake it will cost you time, money, energy and confidence.
And sometimes, you don’t get a second chance to have the right information for a large buyer.
Remember that old saying, “you can’t see the forest for the trees?” Well, I’m here to tell you it happens all the time with products. You get so close that you can’t see all the steps involved and put them in sequence.
You end up re-doing work. Making expensive mistakes. Shelling out more and more money to fix preventable headaches.
And lastly……… the worst outcome of all, “If only……..”
I can’t tell you how many people say, “X number of years ago I had a great idea. I didn’t do anything with it. Then just last month (or last year) I saw it in a store!”
“If only I had taken the chance and really gone after my dream.”
“If only I hadn’t signed that crappy licensing deal.”
“If only I had believed in myself.”
“If only I had known you.”
After hearing “if only” for the gazillionth time from countless people I realized they just didn’t know what we do about product based businesses. They were doing things backwards.
For well over two years I was asked, “can you teach me how to do some of what you do?”. My reply was always, “No, we don’t teach it. We are a service company that does the work for you.”
Then my family history of teaching came roaring to life. Creative ideas about EXACTLY how to teach it came together gracefully and the Product Success Program was created.
People just like you have started, grown and sold product businesses using our processes. We even have clients in well established companies that are leading product turnarounds.
You can now put an end to your confusion about what to do next.Even on a small business budget.
“BEFORE you do anything with your product or invention, talk to Amy. Avoid the expensive novice pitfalls of creating a new product or invention. SAVE yourself thousands of dollars and months of grief, as my clients did! Don’t end up with a warehouse of unsaleable products. Amy is knows her stuff and is full of spunk! You’ll love her.”
As you work with us in the Product Success Program we are continually focused on actions that are supported by strategy and training. The work we'll do together connects your products, sales and marketing.
The strategies for building your product business are different than other types of businesses. That’s why we start with a personalized 1-Day Strategy Intensive to refine your key goals and the top priorities. This day is a combination of a private training workshop, mastermind and business planning session. By the end of the day, we’ve mapped the strategic steps to overcome obstacles on your project’s path to product success.
After your 1-Day Strategy Intensive, we move into the implementation phase. In this stage, you are moving through the one-on-one training program with follow-up sessions, accountability, and proven templates.
The entire program is rich with support, guidance, and accountability. We move methodically through the areas most critical to you achieving your product’s goals. You‘ll have step-by-step expertise and guidance so you feel confident as you complete the action items from each session.
Throughout your program, we’re looking for ways you can maximize sales and minimize having to re-do work. Sidestepping that grand-canyon-sized hole saves you time and it saves you money.
Plus, all our work together is held as confidential & protected with a legal Non-Disclosure Agreement to protect your intellectual property i.e.: patents, trademarks, and copyrights.
This giant whiteboard meeting is a combination of a private training workshop, mastermind, and business planning.
The entire day revolves around you, your products, and your team. Our proprietary process allows us to customize the topics and agenda to your specific needs while giving you the benefit of over 30 years in product businesses. Typical meeting segments can include pricing / costing, marketing messages, production, engineering, intellectual property, finding investors, and more.
Our top-notch team goes into action way before you ever walk into the room.
- You will be sent an in-depth questionnaire once your meeting is scheduled.
- We research trends, pricing, competition, and other factors as background for the day.
- We personally review any materials you want to send over like sales literature, pricing, costing, packaging, or any other documents.
By the end of the day, you’ll have a clear road map separated into monthly actions designed for your product and goals.
Bonus! You’ll get to keep all the charts from your day and preliminary research we’ve done for you. We can even record the day for your personal use if you choose.
Growing a business happens over time. This section of the program supports you along the way. You can request meetings as frequently as you'd like. Send documents over or forward buyer emails. It's all included.
- 12 Follow-Up Sessions: 1 hour each, delivered over the phone or video conference. We'll work through the lens of our proprietary framework to keep your project moving smoothly.
- 3 Hr. Strategy Update
- Ongoing email access & review of your documents. Typically we will respond within 48 business hours, depending on travel schedule.
Many of these tools are proprietary, internal tools we developed over decades of working on product lines. Plus, we created extra templates to support clients with powerful, easy resources for their projects. This toolset is only available inside this training program.
- 24 Customizable Templates & Training Tutorials: Covering product development, sales, marketing, business planning and operations

Want to know who to talk to and what to say in the right sequence? Of COURSE! To make it easier than ever, we pull together contacts from our database and additional sources for you. While we don't know everyone - from buyers to reps or vendors - there's a good chance we either are the source, know them or can find them.

“Amy is ahead of the game when it comes to innovation, creativity, product management, and seeing a product launch from the incubation stages to store shelves. Amy and I came into each other's life when I felt I was stuck in my product marketing plan. She helped me re-energize my brand, gain traction and momentum in the marketplace and see to the sales success of my product. I went from online retail to big box stores and Amy helped me to put systems in place to manage it all. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the Product To Profits steps to success. Amy is the real deal!”
If you have one or two quick questions, we’re usually able to answer those without using any of your follow-up meetings. Please keep in mind that answers to a “quick question” sometimes need some consideration because they will affect another area of your project. In those cases, we will let you know that we need to schedule a meeting.
We know some clients might be working with us before they have filed for patents, trademarks, or other intellectual property. To ensure that we have a great working relationship with you we always send over a standard NDA you can sign online. Our system lets us know that it's ready for us to countersign and then sends the final version to us both.
We typically meet over a video conference like Zoom or a phone call. On occasion, some clients that are local to Pasadena, CA prefer to meet in our offices.
Unfortunately, no. We simply can't guarantee your actions, market conditions, and that your idea will work. That's why we have conversations up front to make sure it's a good fit. There is always a bit of risk in any new venture but we do our very best to lower that as far as possible.
