Lela’s years of experience running her own empire lend extra strength to her mentoring, and it seems that there is no sticky business situation she hasn’t dealt with – and she’s willing to share the lessons she learned so that you can potentially avoid those sticky situations. There are a lot of business coaches and mentors out there, but few are as well suited to guide artisan product brands as Lela is.
