I can help you get your school ready for sale, now or in the future. Properly preparing for the due diligence process that takes place before a school is sold is critical to getting the highest sale price. Making sure that each department is adhering to “best practices” will avoid any deal-breakers. Having recently sold my school, which I built over the last 30 years, I have the experience and expertise to work with you and your broker and attorney to achieve the best possible outcome.  Allow me to guide you with step-by-step coaching through the entire sales process.


Beauty Products

Who better than a Paris-trained esthetician, who worked for Lancome, Payot, Chanel, Dior and Estee Lauder, to be able to provide educational and marketing support for skin care brands, both consumer and professional? Having been a Spokesperson and Motivational Speaker at major trade shows all over the world, it is my passion to train and share my knowledge with others. Professionalism, retail sales, and customer service have marked my career for over 30 years. After I created and sold my own two skin care product lines, I now consult for other companies in the skin care industry.


Spas & Salons

Do you own or manage a spa or beauty salon? Are you happy with your front desk and your bottom line? Let me help you increase your client base, increase product sales, increase retention and improve your operations. Being a licensed cosmetologist, esthetician and body therapist, I can go “behind the scenes” to analyze each service and ensure that all therapists are following spa protocols. It’s all about providing “5-Star customer service” to your guests while maximizing revenue and profits. I can help you minimize refunds and “the dreaded bad review” on social media.



Let’s schedule a time to talk on the phone for 20 minutes to see how I can help you. This is a no-obligation call and an opportunity for me to learn more about your company, your near-term goals, and long-term goals.

“I have known Annette Hanson for many years. She influenced me greatly when I first opened my Day Spa and needed a Spa Consultant. She helped me with my staff from training to ordering and I could not have done as well without her expertise. When I decided to sell the Day Spa 33 years later, she was right there helping to find the ways to make my business look great so I could get my best price and leave my legacy intact. Her knowledge in these fields surpasses any one I have met in the Skin Industry. I trust she can do anything she sets her mind to!”
