WHAT THE AUDIENCE SAYS
I love how excited and passionate Abby is about Sparti Scents. She brought in her story about entrepreneurship and taught us about how she got to where she is. How to appreciate the process and I can see that although she was not in the field, she dreamed of at first, she took all she learned along the way to finally find a product that she can incorporate all her skills.
It is so refreshing seeing someone be so passionate and truly love their job! I really love how [she] showed [her] progression and how [she thinks] ahead to be ahead of the game.
This was so informative. I love how [she is] so inclusive too.
I really liked the presentation because it showed me what it takes to build a successful brand.
[Abby's] enthusiasm about [her] product made me really want to try it, and hearing about [her] story from beginning to now was really inspiring and encouraging.
I loved it! I would like to hear more about the production behind making Sparti.
[Abby's] enthusiasm and drive to make this brand perfect is absolutely inspiring. I love how welcoming and positive the brand is, it really makes customers happy and interested in the product.
I found it really amazing how [she has] created a “Sparti” community because it not only encourages consumers to buy [her] product, but it also inspires prospective entrepreneurs who want to start their own beauty company in the future. It shows how [her] company is so much bigger than just earning a profit!
