DISCOVER HOW TO BUILD THE RETAIL STORE
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do"
WHAT IS THE EPISODE ABOUT
Do the locals high tail it to the big city to do their shopping, passing your store on the way out of town? Would your customers prefer to pay higher shipping costs than support your small town store? Tearing your hair out trying to keep stock your entire town will like?
It's time to stop 'geo-blaming' and start making it big in your small town.
In this episode I'll walk you through the fundamentals of running a successful business in a country town or regional centre.
We'll chat all things financial planning, why the whole town isn't your ideal customer, why embracing change isn't optional, how to get out of towners into your store (even if you're not a tourist destination) and how to grow through collaboration.
My passion is to help independent retailers like YOU to have a profitable retail business – without burning out.
Business doesn't have to be all about stress and hard work – you can achieve success and enjoy the journey.
Unfortunately, it took me too many years of working more hours than I should and getting to the point of burn out, before I figured this out.
Even though I had a business degree, there was nowhere I could go to find out how to open or run a retail business.
There was no community of retailers who would openly share their knowledge or experience.
