How To Teach Charm School

Charm School is a very popular request from mothers. It allows you to teach manners to children in way that is fun and allows for creativity.  You have heard about mixing pureed vegetables into brownies and cookies…to hide them so your children will eat their greens.  Well, Charm School can take on that roll when teaching children manners.

One day, a mother called to discuss the options for a birthday party for her daughter.  The mother mentioned she wanted something fun and different…an option with a bit of a “take-away”, an educational experience in addition to the usual fun and games.  She wanted to step away from the pack, and offer something other than the a sports activity or bouncing on the latest trampoline park.

Together, we customized a birthday party that centered around manners and social skills.  Of course, the other parents were delighted to send their children to this type of party.

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
