The Next Level
Experience + IDEAS
Entrepreneur magazine reports the top reasons consultants are hired for: their expertise, to identify problems, supplement staff, be a catalyst, provide objectivity, teach, bring new life to an organization, create a new product, brand or entire business, and finally, to influence other people.
We do all of this. And we love it.

Utilizing entrepreneurial energy we give clients the best new ideas plus the wisdom of experience. Our goal is to prove that every company can become more that it's founders dreamed possible.
meet the founder
A passionate, experienced entrepreneur (a client nicknamed me "The Alpha Marketer") who embraces change and challenges. Inspired from a young age to be in business, Lonica loved to read Fast Company and Entrepreneur magazine instead of watching TV. She managed her family's jewelry store and manufacturing business at age 19. Then at age 21, she started her first business, an eco-retail store, and made it an early goal to bring new organic textile and bodycare products to the retail marketplace, even if she had to create the products herself. Lonica went on to found several retail stores and e-commerce websites. Along the way, she created several lines of products for her own company, and designed and branded for other large companies.
Lonica is continually excited about bringing healthy, ground-breaking products and services to consumers in an innovative way. She loves consulting with start-ups in the textile, food, and tech industries to guide the first steps of the new company towards success. Lonica's knowledge and passion for organic and natural products led her to move into the food industry. The last few years she spent working primarily with FoodChain ID as Key Account Manager and becoming an technical expert in Non-GMO Project verification.
