In light of how much the mobile (and overall) retail industry continues to grow, and how popular our podcast has gotten, we know you want more business information and trainings.
Since the start of the “Can I Park Here?” podcast, we’ve seen so many retail businesses start up. We’ve also unfortunately watched as owners struggle to get past the two year mark as a self-sustaining, profitable business. Many businesses we’ve interviewed don’t even exist anymore and we’re sad about that. We know the podcast provides amazing information and or course, inspiration but we’re aware of the fact that the ‘next level’ teaching and training could help so many more of you.
When we were approached about teaming up with a retail industry expert for those trainings, we said “YES!” immediately. Perhaps you heard Emily Benson, owner of The Fashion Truck (www.fashiontruck.com) on episode #50? We had a blast with her talking about everything from business mindset to margins that make a profit. After working as a merchant in corporate retail for 7 years, she started her mobile boutique in 2011. Over four years, she also opened a brick and mortar and online women’s apparel retail business. During the time running her own business, she started consulting and realized how many people go into owning a boutique with no retail experience at all. That lead her to write her first book “The Ultimate Boutique Handbook” in 2015.
In 2016, Emily sold her business and began full time training and consulting small boutique owners, just like you, under the name Stylish and Successful. Perhaps you’ve seen her in our Facebook group commenting on posts? Not only is she a wealth of specialized retail knowledge, but she’s funny and encouraging!
We’ve partnered as an affiliate with Emily since we believe that she can help our followers in ways we cannot. Astral is currently in Emily’s Six Figure Blueprint program, testing it out so she can grow her creative product business in 2017! And we’ll be sending you information about both free trainings and paid programs that Emily runs so we can watch you grow and succeed in your retail business!
Today we want to tell you about a specific resources that we know will help at the start of the new year.
Emily’s book: “The Ultimate Boutique Handbook” has helped hundreds of new boutique owners, just like you, get all the facts and figures to start their business. What we are most excited about is that late last year, Emily heard the calls for help with writing a Business Plan and developed a 50 page fillable workbook that goes chapter by chapter with the book so you can easily write out your ideas and get a business plan together quickly! Her Boutique Bundle, which we just love for the new year, includes the book and the Business Plan Workbook! Nothing like this exists on the market so we’re proud to be able to share it with you now.
