What is it really like to own a brick & mortar retail boutique in the current economic climate?
My guest today – Meg Sutton of Belle & Union – has an interesting business trajectory.
She was working full-time, doing wedding invitations on the side… and then decided she wanted to launch her own business.
Instead of just opening an online shop, she worked for a full year behind the scenes, then launched her business at a major trade show in the USA.
It was a big success, and her business grew from there – to moving from strictly wholesale to also selling online – to now, where she has been running her own brick & mortar shop in San Antonio, Texas.
In this episode, we discuss her journey, and the realities of owning a b&m business – the ups and the downs.
If you’ve ever dreamt of opening your own shop (and let’s be honest – who hasn’t?!) don’t miss this episode.
