What else can be added to the  Essentials  Package?

  • Guiding Principles Statement
    What you believe and why can be hard to put into words. We ask a lot of questions and then listen closely to produce a statement you can share publicly.
  • Sourcing Policy
    A good policy makes your decisions easier. Speak to suppliers and customers with confidence about what you will and won't accept from your sourcing.
  • Supplier Interview Call (each)
    Knowing how and what to ask to get the information you need from your suppliers does not always come naturally. We've got the easy and hard questions ready for you and we’ll be your support team in the conversation.
  • Comprehensive Communications Audit
    It can be challenging to find the right words to convey the business practices that set you apart. We can be the friendly but discerning eye to review your marketing language and make sure you are communicating concisely, accurately, and still from the heart.

"Working with CMC allowed me to finally have the necessary foundation my jewelry business needed. Christina and her team led me through a process that before I couldn't entirely navigate on my own. Working with them I now have the tools to confidently communicate with my suppliers, track progress, and share my ethos. I am so glad I took the steps to work with such a dedicated team. Thank you Christina, Ana and Cecilia!"

"I'm a very early client and worked with CMC to review my sourcing and supplier vetting practices. I think the most important question for me that I learned from Christina and the team was to find out what their [the supplier] goals are for the future because this opens communication channels. I strongly suggest creating a process or review with CMC, because that was invaluable and continues to be invaluable for me."
