" I looked at Alexandra’s retail course as the very first investment I could make in my boutique. Coming from another industry I did not even know where to begin making my dream a reality. Alexandra’s retail course takes you step by step in such detail that it has given me the confidence for my boutique launch. I love her willingness to share all that she has learned and she is easily accessible when I have had questions. After taking the retail course, I feel so much more prepared and knowledgeable and know that I can and will be successful. Thank you Alexandra!"

Frequently Asked Questions
A Letter from Alexandra Nicole
Branding & Business Development Expert
I am so excited that you are considering my Retail Academy - Retail Launch course. When I developed The Confident Boss I wanted to give aspiring entrepreneurs all of the information that I have learned in hopes that it will help, in some small way, to cultivate and inspire part of the American Dream, small business success. After all, my business began as a dream to escape the corporate world and exercise my ever flourishing ideas in the realm of fashion, beauty, and business. Many entertain the thought but I want to help you execute!
When I began on my journey, there were no courses on how to start a boutique and upon Googling, I could find very little "How To's" tied with success stories. My degrees have made me proficient in general business dealings but I had to learned everything I needed to know about launching a store by trial and error. Believe me, it was tiresome, costly, and discouraging but I came out on top and I want to ensure that you have the same success. I am sharing all of the secrets they don't teach you in school or online so you can bypass the headache!
Your Retail Academy Course is a 7 part course that provides absolutely everything you will need to get your brick & mortar or online shop up and open.
Just as my boutique and blog have empowered me to successfully expand in my expertise and experiences, this course is designed for the entrepreneur who seeks to be empowered through freedom and creation to ultimately become their own boss
