We couldn’t have got here without a few special people who held our hands and showed us the way when we were just starting out. It’s only fair we share their details so you can also benefit from their wealth of experience and knowledge.

Why we love Jane: From the day we met Jane she has been extremely valuable.

Charlotte Moore was determined to solve the problem she’d heard from hundreds of small business foodies – they have the least amount of time and money but need the most amount of help – so she created The Smoothie Bar. This monthly membership helps foodpreneurs to do their own PR in 10 mins a day for only £49pm, which solves their time and budget issues, yet still offers them the chance to appear in big media names including the Telegraph, BBC Good Food, Metro, Top Santé, Evening Standard, Woman, The Independent and many more.
Wajeeha is one of her star Smoothies and she got herself featured in The Sun, The Telegraph and Forbes within a few months of joining The Smoothie Bar. Charlotte’s favourite things to do in life are eating, lifting and laughing in copious amounts!
Why we love Charlotte: Apart from her crazy, wild and amazing personality, Charlotte is the lady who helped Chocolateeha appear in major press articles. She gives access to daily PR (PR in your pocket as we call it) and this has been a huge help to Chocolateeha!
