Episode Summary:

In this week’s episode, I share four must-have ingredients that every creative retailer needs for a successful business in 2021. I also discuss some major shifts that we are seeing in the retail industry. One of the four-must have ingredients I talk about is being a CEO. Often retailers just want to own a business and forget everything that entails. Being the CEO of your creative business presents you with a lot of benefits. Other ingredients I shared are being money savvy, being streamlined, and being efficient. I also discuss how marketing and sales help creative retailers grow their businesses.
