How to Be Your Own Boss

I get constant questions on how I did it? How did I quit my Fortune 100 job climbing the corporate ladder,  and give up the easy 9 to 5 for an extremely risky business endeavor?  I can tell you one thing, I have had lots of failures and tons of successes with my business in the past 6 years but one thing always remains, I absolutely LOVE my job and being my own boss! Yes it was risky, but not because of the nature of my business. Retail is not a new business model, but the risk lies within the skill set and knowledge level of the entrepreneur. Since I had no experience running a retail shop, the anxiety of failure and insecurity of my competency level always lingered over my shoulder.

6 years later, I have gone through major ups and downs, but through trial and error, and keeping my nose to the grind, I have over come and want to share all of my secrets with other aspiring small business retail owners.

To share my secrets and successes, I decided to start my very own Retail Academy online! My plan is to launch several courses, big and small, one by one. My first course will be focused on the essentials for the beginning stages of a retail business. I will accept 10 students for my “go at your own pace” 7 week course.
The video below was made for the Retail Launch course page and gives a little detail on the course.
The course curriculum is very detailed and contains critical information for setting up, planning, and executing your shop launch successfully without blowing the budget.
