Creative Shop Talk with Wendy Batten

Jan 5, 2021

Welcome to 2021! I'm very excited about this year. How are you feeling? I hope you are feeling optimistic and confident about diving into 2021. 

I want to thank each and everyone who joined me on December, 30th in my Rockstar Creative Retailers and Shop Owners Group on Facebook to discuss my four-part series Plan Your Best Retail Year Ever. I loved the questions and enthusiasm from everyone. 

In this week’s episode, I share four must-have ingredients that every creative retailer needs for a successful business in 2021. I also discuss some major shifts that we are seeing in the retail industry. One of the foundational ingredients I talk about is being a CEO. Often retailers just want to own a business and forget everything that entails. Being the CEO of your creative business presents you with a lot of benefits. Other ingredients I shared are being money savvy, being streamlined, and efficient. I also discuss how marketing and sales help creative retailers grow their businesses.
