“Norm taught us how to speak to our target customers. As new business owners we needed coaching on what to say and how to say it, and how to feel comfortable. Norm gave us the confidence and the knowledge to speak to people about our product. Norm makes himself available to us through Skype and email. Even though he’s across the country, it still feels like he’s right here with us. We are very happy with Norm and the information he has given us.”

“Norm knows business, he knows vaping, he knows strategy, planning, branding…everything. Norm was willing to work at my own pace, whether I wanted to move more quickly or get more detailed information about certain things.

Norm was totally on my side, looking out for me in every aspect of the business, so if you are thinking about opening up a vape store or you need more information, I highly recommend Norm and Vape Mentors.”

    Hi i would like to start a vape shop in Durban South Africa on the beach, i just want to find out what the cost will be to open up a shop like this as well as any franchise costs involved and or monthly charges if there are any?

      In the US we recommend a $50K budget to start a shop and any franchise fees would be on top of that.
