Welcome to Merchant Inspired! This startup is a true labor of love 14 months in the making and I am so grateful you stopped by. Below is a quick introduction on how the site came to be and what to expect as we gear up for the launch. If you have any questions or would like to contact me directly, please head over to www.merchantinspired.com.
My day job consists of three descriptions: mother, wife, merchant. Almost two years ago the merchant part took a back seat when we moved to a new city and had child #2- but the passion I had for the job (and the industry as a whole) would not subside. I missed being a part of it all- the product, the people, the stores, line presentations, and especially mentoring. So with a few freelance projects under my belt I decided to launch a consulting business- where I can utilize my knowledge and experience on a daily basis. Whether I am analyzing a brands position within the market or providing strategies for the upcoming season- I can say with certainty I truly love what I do.
Secondly, launching Merchant Inspired gives me a platform on social media to showcase why the retail industry is so amazing. I consider myself incredibly fortunate for the roles I have had, the brands I worked for, and the talent I have met along the way. My goal is to be a resource or a guide- whether you are working in retail or are a loyal customer. This is my way of showcasing why a product, person, job, or business is worth your time. At the end of the day, whether you are a potential consulting partner or a fan of the page- my hope is that you are inspired.
On my profile it says I am an aspiring blogger- which basically means until the website is finalized, Facebook will be my platform. I hope you join me on this journey and thank you for your patience as we get up and running!
