My Victoria Magazine EnTEApreneur Interview.

My Victoria Magazine EnTEApreneur Interview.

victoria magazine

I was so fortunate to be included in an exciting photo shoot for Victoria Magazine. Suzanne Smith of Crazy Blonde Life and I were selected to be featured in the Entrepreneur January Issue.

I will let you know, this became a dream come true.

Those that follow me, know I have been an entrepreneur for over seventeen years. I eat, live, and feel every aspect of owning two businesses (Manners To Go and The American Academy of Etiquette). 

And to have my businesses recognized in a national magazine – well, really there are no words.

The title of the article is The Ideal Blend. And also this says so much. For me, it was an ideal blend. 

Blending business, friendship, adventure, and afternoon tea is a dream.  It was the highlight of 2022.

The January 2023 issue is special because it features entrepreneurs. 

And yes, this is meaningful – but for me, it was about the human connection and also the adventure of the entire experience. 

From choosing what to wear, and meeting the editors, to discovering Birmingham, Alabama with Suzanne – those are moments I cherish.

Lisa Richey and Victoria Magazine
What to Wear for  Victoria Magazine 

Now I can smile about it, and how I wish I had taken photos of all the UPS shipments that arrived almost daily in June.  As I considered what to wear, my dining room table became piled high with boxes containing dresses and blouses.  What a challenge it was to find the right outfit during the midst of summer for a winter photo shoot.

And I would do it all over again.  I loved every second of it.

My First Formal Afternoon Tea in Atlanta

My first ever formal afternoon tea was as a young woman living in Atlanta.  A friend from college invited me to have tea at The Ritz Carlton.

This experience forever changed me.  I was awestruck by the elegance, beauty, and brewing process of tea.  I started to recreate the ritual at home.

Years later, I started a business that offers classes on afternoon tea.

Isn’t it funny to look back and see those moments that changed you – had a profound effect on the trajectory of life?

Lisa Richey and Victoria Magazine Discuss Entrepreneurship and Afternoon Tea

There are two components of the issue that will be of interest to you.

One is the print issue that you can find at magazine stands nationwide. Barnes and Noble have it on their stands right now.

The other option is to read it online. You can download the issue. Click here.

And for something special and related to afternoon tea, Victoria Magazine interviewed me about the specifics…it is a Q&A about:

What are the differences among the various types of tea?

When I’m invited to afternoon tea, what should I wear?

As a hostess, how can I create a lovely environment for afternoon tea?

These are only a few of the questions that are answered in the article.

Organizations are looking for someone like you to teach manners to children.  

Example of Youth/Summer Camp Programs | Country Clubs and Summer Camp/Athletic Programs. 

As a business owner, planning is a very important of part of your success and now is the perfect time to start contacting summer camps and other youth programs. Many are looking for additional programming and experts to supplement their camp programs.

They are looking for experts like you to come in and provide workshops.  

A Country Club in New Jersey is a good example.  They have a very strong and well-attended summer camp program. Parents drop off their children in the morning during the summer.  They know their children are taken care of, getting loads of exercise, fresh air, and educated at the same time. 

six things I wish I had known before I started my etiquette business

As the children rotate around different sports activities, a manners class is being taught.  One session teaches basic social skills. Another session is basic table manners as lunch is served.

On another day, all the children are entertained by afternoon tea. 

Children thank you notes | Youth/Summer Camp programs

On the last day, a gift bag is sent home with their manners activity book, placemat, and thank you notes.

The parents are thrilled.

Lisa is a great mentor and her Manners to Go program is truly turn key. She taught me everything that I needed to learn to ensure that I will be successful in my endeavor . The program has been very helpful every step of the way. I feel truly blessed that I am part of her team. ~ Rita Linda Dayrit
Philippines Etiquette Consultant, Manners and Mindfulness

Lisa is a consummate professional and has been an invaluable resource to me as I begin my new business. Not only is she warm and welcoming in person, she is also an expert in her field who makes the subject matter relatable and accessible to her clients.  Her training has provided me with a vast knowledge of etiquette and best practices for teaching it.   

As an international business operator, I have been impressed with Lisa’s curiosity and questions, which enabled her to advise me and apply her product in a new region for a new audience. Her knowledge of marketing enabled me to hit the ground running and hold my first classes within weeks of becoming certified.  Not only have I opened my own business but I have also gained a teammate who is committed to my success. ~ Jenni F.,  Macau, China

Lisa Richey’s Manners To Go certification program provides a highly efficient and effective training program for anyone considering starting a manners and etiquette business. I selected her program because of the virtual delivery method of training. The lesson plans and student handouts were easy to download and review before engaging in her one-on-one conference calls. During each call, Mrs. Richey was very focused in conveying her business strategies she has proven to be successful over the years. Mrs. Richey’s Manners To Go certification program is really a “best value” program considering her efficient use of the virtual delivery method of training, the quality of teaching materials provided and the effective, interactive business calls with her I found necessary to guide my steps to make the business of teaching manners successful. ~ Aleta Greenspan, Alabama

As a former teacher, I deliberated for months over which etiquette curriculum would best fit and equip me with quality materials, instruction and support to reenter the field of education.  Manners To Go delivers!  I regret not getting started sooner.  The investment is modest for the quantity and caliber of materials you receive, not to mention the personal coaching from Lisa.  The curriculum is age appropriately structured and organized in an easy to study format that positions you to execute your lesson confidently prepared.  If you have a passion for equipping young people in etiquette, Manners To Go, is the way to go! ~ Alissa R. | Etiquette Consultant

I was looking for charm school type material for my after school program for girls, and came upon the Manners To Go website. It was like finding a treasure trove of “what-to-do(s)” and “how-to-do(s)” on manners for children. It was more that I could have imagined finding. It is, without a doubt, one of the best decisions I have ever made.

In receiving my MTG training, Lisa provided every tool and resource needed to become a successful MTG Consultant. What excited me the most is that the training includes access to her many years of experience as a successful businesswoman.

I recommend the MTG program to parents, grandparents, teachers, after school programs, or anyone who may be concerned about what our children need know about manners and etiquette. Lisa’s Manners To Go is a great product, and it is a joy working with her! ~ Lindafaye N. Etiquette Consultant

Lisa, I am so happy I found you. I’ve wanted to teach kids etiquette for years, but never had the time to research all the material and then figure out how to teach it. With your Manners To Go program, I now have the perfect program to start my business. You delivered exactly what you promised: excellent support and a turnkey system. Thank you for making it easy and fun! It was truly an honor to be trained by someone of your caliber and experience, who was willing to share “everything you know, do, and use” with me. I would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to teach children’s etiquette! ~ Sandra E. Etiquette Consultant

Lisa went above and beyond what she promised to deliver.  Her enthusiasm she shares for my business is very reassuring.  I have found a life long mentor. ~ Michele W. Etiquette Consultant

Etiquette Certification: 3 Lessons I’ve Learned from Our Licensees

Etiquette Certification: 3 Lessons I’ve Learned from Our Licensees

Etiquette Certification: 3 Lessons I’ve Learned from our Licensees | All of our licensees have touched me in many ways.  I am so proud of them.  In fact, bursting at the seams proudly.

A new licensee called this morning for advice. The new licensee and I met two weeks ago in NYC for her 2 Day In-Person Immersion training.  We posted on social media several times during the training.  We posted together as she observed a manners class in action.  The two of us posted as we had afternoon tea together at Tiffany’s.  We applied all the appropriate hashtags, such as her city. 

Our postings were noticed! 

Within a week,  a local magazine contacted her for an interview.  They are interviewing her about the business she is starting.  It also includes a photo shoot. WOW!  This is amazing press for someone who is just starting a business.

Another licensee is publishing a book.  More to come about her in the spring.

Another licensee had the chance over the summer to work with royalty.

Yes, we are proud and celebrating in our office today.

All of this glowing and recognizing others’ achievements is what prompted this article.

If  You Dream It, You Can Do It | Yes, you can. If you have a passion, whether for teaching manners to children or painting, if you can dream it you can create it for yourself.

It takes stamina.  You must take action.  It is doable and achievable if you put your mind to it.

Importance of a Fast Start | My first job was with Speedo.  Our manager at the time drilled this message into the entire sales team.  We even had notepads with “FAST START” at the top.  I have a vivid memory of it.

Many of my licensees have a “Fast Start”.  Many already have classes lined up before they are trained.

During our training, I tell my licensees not to get too focused on the day-to-day operations.  Of course, we believe in the organization and having your ducks in a row but you must serve your passion.  Your passion is to teach….. that is your starting point….to get out and teach!

3 Key Questions to Ask When Looking for an Etiquette Certification Program

3 Key Questions to Ask When Looking for an Etiquette Certification Program | Are you considering starting a business to teach manners to children?  If so, most likely you are researching companies that offer a training and certification program. 

Whether you choose Manners To Go or not, here are three key questions you should be asking yourself about the company and the certification offered.

how to start etiquette business | Etiquette Certification program

What Are the Fees?   

At Manners To Go, once you pay the initial fee, you do not owe any money until the end of the three-year license agreement.  At the end of three years, you have the option to renew.

You do not owe annual fees.  You do not owe monthly dues.  You do not pay any type of royalties.  The money that you earn is yours.

six things I wish I had known before I started my etiquette business | Etiquette Certification program
become etiquette consultant | Etiquette Certification program

Is the Curriculum Content Rich? Will I Be Proud to Teach from this Material? Does It Align with My Image and Brand?

Manners To Go is the most comprehensive manners and etiquette certification program you will find.  

We know this to be true because time and time again we have new etiquette consultants contact us due to the fact they made another choice and the curriculum/program did not meet their expectations.

You get what you pay for.  This is an old saying but it stays true over time.  I bet your mother and grandmother told this to you over and over.

We get calls all the time because:

  • Other programs are not content rich
  • The illustrations are old-fashioned and the new etiquette consultant is too embarrassed to use it
  • The training does not provide business and marketing plans

Is On-Going Support Offered?

Yes, we offer ongoing support.  In fact, we encourage it.

Become Trained and Certified to Teach Manners

Best Etiquette Certification | A gentleman called last week and we discussed how he could incorporate a manners program into his current business for children.  He spoke about how necessary and needed teaching manners and social skills is in our world today.  Parents are so appreciative when this is taught in schools, aftercare programs, preschools, and Girl and Boy Scout troops.

A teacher nearing retirement called and we had a lovely conversation about her desire to start her business.  We have many teachers that are currently teaching and also those that are in retirement and looking for their next adventure.

Another conversation I had was with a future licensee who started a business teaching manners and is interested in expanding to teach all grade levels.  Also, they felt the need to offer an organized manners curriculum.

My name is Lisa Richey, and I am the founder of Manners To Go™ . This brand has given me the honor of teaching manners to thousands of people around the world.

Lisa is a consummate professional and has been an invaluable resource to me as I begin my new business. Not only is she warm and welcoming in person, she is also an expert in her field who makes the subject matter relatable and accessible to her clients.  Her training has provided me with a vast knowledge of etiquette and best practices for teaching it.   

As an international business operator, I have been impressed with Lisa’s curiosity and questions, which enabled her to advise me and apply her product in a new region for a new audience. Her knowledge of marketing enabled me to hit the ground running and hold my first classes within weeks of becoming certified.  Not only have I opened my own business but I have also gained a teammate who is committed to my success. ~ Jenni F.,  Macau, China

Lisa Richey’s Manners To Go certification program provides a highly efficient and effective training program for anyone considering starting a manners and etiquette business. I selected her program because of the virtual delivery method of training. The lesson plans and student handouts were easy to download and review before engaging in her one-on-one conference calls. During each call, Mrs. Richey was very focused in conveying her business strategies she has proven to be successful over the years. Mrs. Richey’s Manners To Go certification program is really a “best value” program considering her efficient use of the virtual delivery method of training, the quality of teaching materials provided and the effective, interactive business calls with her I found necessary to guide my steps to make the business of teaching manners successful. ~ Aleta Greenspan, Alabama

As a former teacher, I deliberated for months over which etiquette curriculum would best fit and equip me with quality materials, instruction and support to reenter the field of education.  Manners To Go delivers!  I regret not getting started sooner.  The investment is modest for the quantity and caliber of materials you receive, not to mention the personal coaching from Lisa.  The curriculum is age appropriately structured and organized in an easy to study format that positions you to execute your lesson confidently prepared.  If you have a passion for equipping young people in etiquette, Manners To Go, is the way to go! ~ Alissa R. | Etiquette Consultant, 2016

I was looking for charm school type material for my after school program for girls, and came upon the Manners To Go website. It was like finding a treasure trove of “what-to-do(s)” and “how-to-do(s)” on manners for children. It was more that I could have imagined finding. It is, without a doubt, one of the best decisions I have ever made.

In receiving my MTG training, Lisa provided every tool and resource needed to become a successful MTG Consultant. What excited me the most is that the training includes access to her many years of experience as a successful businesswoman.

I recommend the MTG program to parents, grandparents, teachers, after school programs, or anyone who may be concerned about what our children need know about manners and etiquette. Lisa’s Manners To Go is a great product, and it is a joy working with her! ~ Lindafaye N. Etiquette Consultant, 2015

Lisa, I am so happy I found you. I’ve wanted to teach kids etiquette for years, but never had the time to research all the material and then figure out how to teach it. With your Manners To Go program, I now have the perfect program to start my business. You delivered exactly what you promised: excellent support and a turnkey system. Thank you for making it easy and fun! It was truly an honor to be trained by someone of your caliber and experience, who was willing to share “everything you know, do, and use” with me. I would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to teach children’s etiquette! ~ Sandra E. Etiquette Consultant 2014

Lisa went above and beyond what she promised to deliver.  Her enthusiasm she shares for my business is very reassuring.  I have found a life long mentor. ~ Michele W. Etiquette Consultant 2016
