Episode Summary:

Do you ever feel like you resent your business? What do we do to continue to stay in love with our business? How do we get back to the honeymoon phase? 

In this week’s episode, I talk about resenting our business. I know this past year has been eye-opening. One of the things I discuss is the importance of being intentional about the business that we have and figuring out what we want from it. If we resent it, if we burn out, if we just try to do all the things all the time, we cannot grow our business. We need to take back our calendars and have systems, marketing, and processes in place. 

If you want to take back your calendars and stop resenting your business, I want to invite you to join The Retailer’s Inner Circle, a  custom-made online community made for creative shop owners looking to learn and grow their business. Inside the Inner Circle, you will find valuable resources that will help you fall back in love with your business. This is not a course. We offer a community & resources for retailers just like you! Click here to learn more.

Also, want to let you know that this is our last podcast for this first season. Can you believe we have done a year of podcasting? I’m so grateful for everybody that has been here. I am sending you all the love and good vibes so you can stop resenting your business and start seeing your business grow. I’m here to support you in any way so you can get back into loving your business and finding that right path. Please remember to reach out. It is my mission to help creative shop owners feel better about their business. You can find me at
