Creative Shop Talk Podcast Episode 197 | The Monthly Debrief: A Simple Activity All Retail Shop Owners Should Be DoingWith Retail Coach Wendy Batten
In This Episode:
The monthly debrief is a simple process that can be an important factor to the growth and sustainability of your retail business. And it’s easy peasy.
If you’ve ever found yourself repeating mistakes or wondering why a promotion or event you tried in your retail shop didn’t work, this episode is for you. Stop reinventing the wheel and trying to “remember.” (We won’t!) 🙂
The term “debrief” may scare some people off, but I promise doing this simple exercise every month will help you tremendously in your business. This episode is full of prompts and questions you should be answering at the end of every month during your operational debrief CEO time. We’ll cover all the bases from your KPIs to what the weather was like during your big event to making sure your “big rocks” are scheduled for the next month.
As a member of my Retailer’s Inner Circle, you have access to the full checklist/list of debrief questions. Ready to join us? Here’s how.

Through online classes, business coaching programs, speaking, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped hundreds of retailers around the globe reclaim their dream and see the success they want from their beautiful shops.

When I’m not coaching, you will find me either DIYing and renovating my very imperfect old crooked cottage by the sea in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Lunenburg, NS, or blogging about our travel and RVing adventures and the weird fun things we get up to in our coastal village.
