Keeping it real!

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this podcast. I have had a fashion boutique for 15 years. Everyday I stress and worry because of the internet taking over the retail world. Your inspiration and advice keeps me going!
Thank you! Lots of love!!!

There are no words...

...but I’ll obviously try.

If you’re a shop keeper green or seasoned, if you’re thinking about dipping your toe into the world of entrepreneurship, or if you have an intense amount of respect for small business owners and want to peek behind the curtain of the brain + heart behind the wheel - then tune in, because this podcast is so much more than interviews about brick and mortar.

Rachel guides her guests into exchanges about the nuts and bolts of business, what inspires and/or challenges people, and brings a much needed human voice to the idea of retail in the age of Amazon and social isolation. It’s been such a necessary salve for my soul as I wade through the waters of my first years of shop ownership, but it also provides indispensable perspective to anyone who values small businesses, strong communities, and thriving local economies.

I so look forward to new episodes on release day and getting to hear a more in depth telling of why it is that people feel called to this kind of career. Plus, Rachel is a natural facilitator and her conversations are easy to listen to as they are authentic and wisdom-filled.
