WHO ARE YOU?
 

Hey there, Rockstar!

I don't think we've met. I'm Kenna.

Let's turn your soapy passion into cash in your pocket.

I started making soap in 2004 and spent years perfecting my techniques, formulas, and knowledge. Some say that one of my superpowers is distilling soapmaking chemistry down to plain English.

I’ve owned and operated two successful soap companies: Amathia Soapworks and Gratitude Soapery. In 2018, I sold Gratitude Soapery so I could put 100% of my focus on helping you have the same success.

When it comes to being a badass soap biz owner, you could say, I’ve been there, done that, and have the damn t-shirt.

Let's get you one, too.

GET IN ON SUCCESS FOR YOURSELF...

 

Wouldn't smashing revenue goals and record-breaking biz growth look good on you, too?

We think so.

DID SOMEONE SAY BONUSES?
 

BONUS:

COURAGE TO CONQUER

($297 value)

Courage to Conquer is a six-week self-study program that is now exclusively available for Next Level members.

Are you running a business or spinning your wheels?

If you don't know how much money you make, what products boost your bottom line, or how to run the business side of your business, we created this program for you.

Join us for six weeks of learning  how to track and analyze the data that will empower you to make smart business choices in the new year (and more years to come!)

Has your business become your entire life? Take it back as you learn the create that elusive life/work balance, prioritize your efforts, and put meaningful action first.

Uncover your unique plan for taking your biz to the next level next year.​

We'll help you get a pulse on your biz, round up your goals, and get your personalized action plan in place to kick ass and take names all year long.

It's time to stop running around like a chicken with its head cut off and start making big wins in your soap biz.

Take the program anytime, but we recommend revisiting it every January.

"After Courage to Conquer, we had a better handle on our expenses and cost of goods sold. We made clear goals and have followed through with most of them. We've already sold more than all of last year and we still have the biggest sales of the year coming up. If you are on the fence, go for it. You will have a better idea of how your company and individual products are doing and focus your efforts over the next year."

- Kyla M.

ARE YOU READY TO...

  • Set new sales records
  • Bring in more profit
  • Actually pay yourself
  • Skip the overwhelm
  • Get laser-focused
  • Run your biz like the badass you are

Of course, you are, rockstar.

With a little Courage to Conquer in your back pocket, you won't be stressing, trying to figure it all out on your own.​

"This stuff works!!!!  I have had a 250% increase in revenue from 2018 to 2019.  The hype we began to see last year as we worked our way through branding and Courage to Conquer morphed into traction. To see 2019 Q1 pulling in with a 250% increase is simply amazing!!  And that is not all!  I just deployed phase one of my marketing strategy for 2019 two weeks ago.  I acquired four new wholesale accounts yesterday alone!!"

- Christina C.

 

 

BONUS:

PRICING FOR PROFIT

($47 value)

Pricing for Profit is a 70+ page independent-study guide on pricing that is now exclusively available for Next Level members.

Cost x 2 = Wholesale x 2 = Retail = Profit, right?
Wrong! Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's not how pricing works.

Long-term, sustainable pricing is the backbone of a successful soap company. And when you try to match other soapmakers, you get exactly where they are: nowhere.

With this guide and workbook in one, you'll learn exactly how to price for profit based on your unique business, brand, and customer.

And, you won't panic every time you see a price hike in raw materials (because you've planned for that).

Plus, you'll learn how to handle pricing objections from customers (like “I could make that!”) and from yourself (yes, I’m talking to your inner fear monster).

Learn to stop selling yourself short with Pricing for Profit.

"By far my favourite how to price your soap ebook I’ve read! With Kenna’s personality, passion and enthusiasm + her experience, reading and understanding this ebook was a breeze (and fun actually). I seriously recommend this one for all soapy businesses that are unsure on their pricing structure, or those just starting out. Kenna also gives you a pep talk on how amazing you and your skills are and that you must not undervalue your work. I thought this ebook was positive, informative, and made me want to take action."

- Victoria

QUESTION FOR YOU...

Are you tired of guessing what your prices should be? 

Did you know you have more than just your costs to consider? 

Are you desperately needing guidance on how to make your business dreams a reality with the profit to match?

Pricing for Profit will take you from “Uhhh, five dollars… I think…” to “Yup, that’s my price, and I’m happily stickin’ to it.” Start pricing your products effectively, sustainably, and with stability today – not tomorrow, and certainly not eventually when you’re dead broke.

 

BONUS:

BRAND MAGIC

($47 value)

Over 45 pages of detailed information about branding your handmade soap, bath and body, cosmetics, and skincare business – whether you are just starting out or are looking to build a better brand. Now exclusively available for Next Level members.

Do you wish your products had their own cheering section?
That's what this workbook will do for you.

Is your target market women ages 20-60 who like natural products? Step back! (Because that's every hobby soap company's target market, hun.)

Chances are you aren't making (enough) sales. And that's because buyers don't understand what your products will do for them or why they should care about your brand.

And until they do, your marketing efforts will keep failing.

The good news is that Brand Magic will help you get crystal clear on who you serve, why they should buy from you, and exactly what message will get them to do that...again and again.

Brand Magic is hugely focused on taking action instead of reading a million pages of drivel and includes tons of nifty worksheets and recommendations for designers, DIY resources, and further reading. 

"I love this workbook! Brand Magic caused me to stretch a bit and think really hard and deep about “who” I wanted my brand to be. It caused me to look at branding entirely different than what I have been accustomed to. If you are wanting to really take branding to another level, get this workbook. You will not regret it! Kenna, thank you for putting so much valuable and thought-provoking information into this workbook!"

- Amber

"It is a lot of difficult work – Kenna really makes you think deeply and in great detail about your brand and target market. When I was about 2/3rds of the way through the book, I reached out to a company that does branding, graphics, and web design & development. I showed them the work that I had done from BRAND MAGIC and that work saved me $1,200 worth of their work and time! Am I glad I bought this book? Should you get this book? Is it worth it? Absolutely, positively, unequivocally yes!"

- Gwendolyn

HERE'S WHAT'S INSIDE...

  • a new way to look at branding that won’t confuse the crap out of you
  • an easy way to evaluate how your brand is sitting pretty (or not…)
  • understanding the true power of the words you choose to talk about your company
  • building a brand personality that customers can relate and connect with
  • telling the true stories behind what makes you & your brand unique
  • identifying that special spark that makes your products a step above the rest
  • developing guiding values that make business decisions a no brainer
  • finding your target market without relying 100% on your imagination
  • crafting your brand beyond your logo, colors, and typography for a true experience
  • compiling your brand into a visual masterpiece to carry all your hard work forward
 

BONUS:

EFFICIENCY IN SCALING

($27 value)

Efficiency in Scaling is the first how-to guide on how to increase production size and start masterbatching, and it's exclusively available for Next Level members.

Still making soap in teensy tiny two or three-pound batches?

Starting to hear your customers crack the whip because you can’t keep their favorites in stock? Or did you realize you gotta slim down your time hovering over the soap pot so you can actually run a biz?

Efficiency in Scaling is everything you need to know to start making soap like a biz owner, not a hobbyist. Take it from someone who has gone from ten bar batches of soap to thousands of bars in a single day, the most critical component of putting on the biz owner’s hat is putting down the stick blender and working smarter (not harder).

This is the original resource to be published for the soapmaking community that doesn’t just tell you how to masterbatch, but what issues might occur when scaling, what safety practices you should be using, and so much more.

Efficiency in Scaling is the book that started it all - that's right it's the first guide Kenna ever published.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY...

"This book is amazing! There is so much useful information contained inside that makes it worth more than the reasonable price tag. With the help of this book I have successfully been able to masterbatch my soaping oils allowing me to be much more productive. I haven’t tried masterbatching my lye yet but when I feel ready this book will lead me through that as well. Thanks for such a wonderful ebook!"

- Jenn

"Awesome book! I am still a hobbyist but with big plans for my soap making and Kenna’s book just shows you the way. Before that, I was envisioning something completely different for my future business… which means: a lot of time measuring ingredient by ingredient in every single batch of soap! Thanks so much for this book! Highly recommend it!!"

- Tais

We know this membership is a game-changer for soap business owners. But you don't have to take it from us...

LEARN FROM A TEAM OF SOAPMAKERS WHO HAVE BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT...

"Love everything I’m learning (...) Overall,  very easy to follow instructions. Thank you Kenna for sharing your experiences with us."

- LANA S.

"I just want to say that if there ever is a University for Soapmaking Entrepreneurs, it’s right here on this website. And Keena will make us graduate with PhDs!"

GINA C.

"Great content, I have found everything very helpful as I plan my business. I’m taking it slowly and learning as much as possible before I jump in and appreciate all the info."

“MONEY WELL SPENT”

"I have been a member of the Next Level Tribe with Modern Soapmaking for about a year now. The content is so intuitive, knowing precisely what Beauty Business owners need even when we didn't quite know we needed it lol. Tons of resources, articles, templates I devoured the information. (...)

I can't speak highly enough of the team Kendra and Stephanie have been awesome with answering my questions and super responsive.

The most amazing part of Modern Soapmaking is that they use their voice to challenge the status quo as it relates to race in America. As a black woman over 50, I am encouraged that I am seen and appreciated here and that Modern Soapmaking champion causes that will affect change!

So if you are thinking about investing in your biz, do it! It will be money well spent!"

TESTIMONIAL
“I went from feeling inadequate to
empowered.”

 
Placeholder Image

My first encounter with your materials left me feeling so inadequate. Once I got over that feeling that my business was nothing more than a hobby, I invested in your materials and started working my way through it all. I went from feeling inadequate to empowered. I still have a long way to go. My product varieties need to be paired down, my price needs to go up again. It will all happen in time. I have so much work ahead of me with my website, newsletter, FB ads, and learning Instagram. But, I can absolutely see the measurable difference now. The response I am getting in the market place is just so affirming.

Your candid sharing of mental health and anxiety issues has been a great help to me. While I don’t share your diagnosis per se, I had some emotional challenges to overcome in birthing our brand and developing my business. Your courage to be comfortable in your own skin empowered me to be courageous in my own sphere. So really, this has been not just your help in creating a better business. It has been a central part of healing and self-discovery. Thanks a million.

TESTIMONIAL
“...opened my eyes to possibilities I had never
considered before.”

 

As you know starting a soap biz right means having ten plates in the air at all times. It’s not a linear process. I can’t work on one thing today, finish it, and move to the next because they are all intertwined. This means that this morning I have reworked a formula on soap calc and now I am working on my logo but this afternoon I will be writing a personal note to the lovely lady who wrote and invited me to join the Chamber of Commerce followed by researching whether Xero or Quick Books would be the best accounting software for me. The library in Next Level allows me to go back and forth and sideways to learn about whatever my need is in the moment.

I love that the Next Level has opened my eyes to possibilities I had never considered before. Wholesale for example. The learning curve on that would be deep and wide for me to see the possibilities on my own. I now think it may be one of my main focuses. I had already decided I was not one to sit in the cold, the heat, the wind, and the rain to try to hawk soap at the farmer’s market! It may have been years in before I decided to tackle wholesale if it hadn’t been for the Next Level. So THANKS!

QUESTIONS?
 

We have answers.

Hold on, let me get this straight. What all is included in Next Level Society membership?

Next Level includes a lot, so I get wanting an easy breakdown. Inside, you'll find a supportive community in our Facebook group and website, a library of downloadable content, an archive of recorded workshops, a calendar of upcoming live workshops, and the ability to schedule 1:1 consulting.

You'll also snag access to all the bonuses like our planning and data analytics program, Courage to Conquer, our branding workbook, Brand Magic, our pricing self study guide, Pricing for Profit, and our ebook about masterbatching and scaling production, Scaling in Efficiency.

I want to make sure I can attend live workshops. When are they?

Currently, workshops and events get scheduled for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at various starting times. Co-working sessions usually happen during the day while workshops typically happen in the evening. We schedule events in the US Central timezone.

What topics are covered in live workshops? I don't want to waste my time with info I already have.

Anything and everything related to running a soap company! We poll the membership every quarter before we plan the topics so we can make sure we are helping as many members as possible!

I'm brokedy broke broke. What payment options are there?

We offer three standard payment options (Monthly, Annual, and Close the Gap) and there is no difference in what you get.

Monthly membership is the most affordable payment option, but it'll cost you the most in the long run. If money is tight, join us and then immediately hit up the recorded Marketing Mastery workshop were we teach you how to make fast revenue. Then upgrade to an Annual membership to get two months free!

Our Close the Gap option is for women of color ONLY and offers a $1 month trial. If you qualify, take advantage of the offer and hit those Marketing workshops to make that cash and keep your membership active.

Some members say they are lifetime members. What the hell is that?

Seasonally, we offer a limited number of Permanent Rockstar memberships for Next Level. For a one-time sign up fee, members are able to upgrade to a permanent membership and no renewal fees. Stay tuned for the next availability.

How much time do I need to spend to get results?

Individual results can vary, because every biz is different. You might need less help than the rockstar next to you, or you might need more. No shame! Tailor your experience to your needs and don't feel pressured to do everything!

What if I want to change my membership? Or find out that it's not for me?

We hate when companies only offer the ability to modify your membership through limited phone support during short business hours or other timezones. We won't do that to you!

You can login and modify your membership at any time with the click of button. Upgrade to annual, downgrade to monthly, or cancel your membership, even if it's 2 am.

We don't offer refunds, but we won't make you wait for a lockout period, a minimum membership length, or any other limit to when and if you decide to cancel your membership.

I'm not an American, and I know y'all are. Does that mean this isn't for me?

No way! We have members from all around the world and create content that helps everyone build a successful soap biz no matter where they live.

I can't stand profanity. I believe women should defer to men. I believe All Lives Matter. And I firmly believe that there are only two genders and marriage is between a man and a woman. Should I join?

No, ma'am. Lucky for you, we exist within an uptight patriarchal racist industry that offers you a ton of options that align with your views. We aren't it, sis.

Why figure it all out for yourself when you can have all the answers right here? There's never been an easier and less stressful way to build a successful soap business.

Let me in!
