BLOG

Introduction


Good Morning and welcome to Merchant Inspired! I am so excited to be writing to you this morning and sharing a “link” with you via social media. This website/ new business venture has been a dream in the making for almost two years- so it means a lot that you stopped by today. The plan is to give you a brief introduction on the content of the site, some fun facts about me, and then I will let you get back to enjoying your first Sunday of the new year. Let’s get started…

After working in retail for the last 15+ years, I am beginning a new chapter as a consultant, coach, and blogger. The goal is to help small business owners achieve their goals, provide professional insight to up-and-comers, and showcase how amazing the industry is along the way. The blog specifically has personal stories on my career, lots of motivation, and a spotlight on those who inspire me through their own retail journey’s. I tend to call it product + people + process + passion- one post at a time.

At the end of the day, my hope is to be a resource- for all those who have a similar passion for the retail industry. Whether we work together or touch base via the blog- I want the experience and love I have for this business to help others achieve their dreams. I hope you will join me.

Lastly, I thought it was important for you to know a few fun facts about who you are subscribing to… Please take a quick look below and afterwards I invite you to check out the website. It was a true labor of love and it would be great to hear your thoughts.

Thank you again for visiting on launch day!
