Let's Talk Shop with Georgina from Afro Touch Design Let's Talk Shop

    • Entrepreneurship

In this episode of Let’s Talk Shop I speak with Georgina, owner and founder of Afro Touch Design.Georgina makes beautiful hand finished cards using West African wax fabric and we talk about Covid-19, business in general, wholesale and what challenges Georgina have to meet being a black-owned business as well as selling a diverse product. We talk about why there are not enough cards featuring black people on them in all sort of shops, why does Georgina as a black woman have to go to actively seek out a card in a special shop or online instead of popping into her local gift shop to get an anniversary card for her husband? This week I learned a lot about myself and about being anti-racist instead of being non-racist and I will continue to learn about this. Going forward I will actively invite more diverse guests and not shy away from having open conversations about biases and inequality in our industry. I would love to hear your thoughts on what you think will happen when shops open up again? What will get you to visit a store in real life? And/or if you plan to continue shopping online more this year? Lastly, if you enjoy this podcast and the content I create, in particular right now please share where you are tuning in so others can discover the podcast too and rate and review it over on itunes/apple podcast. Links mentioned in this episode:Diverse Gifts: https://diverse-gifts.myshopify.com/Bonkers: https://www.bonkers.uk.com/Moon Lane Books: https://www.moonlaneink.co.uk/ Connect with GeorginaWebsite: https://afrotouch.design/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/afrotouchdesign/ If you want help with your wholesale please get in touch either on my website, by email or Instagram and book a free no obligation discovery call. Connect with meWebsite: https://www.smallbusinesscollaborative.co.uk/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/small_business_collaborative/ Apply to be a guest on season 3 of Let’s Talk Shophttps://thereseoertenblad.typeform.com/to/ZPiHVX
