How I can help you
I would like to use my years as an entrepreneur and small business owner in the fashion industry to help those starting out or have aspirations to build their own business.
As a small business owner I have had to wear many hats including marketing, bookkeeping, product design and development, human resouces, import/export, sourcing, legal and leasing. Having started my business with no outside funding and virtually no startup capital, I have knowledge of cash flow and its challenges and potential pitfalls. I have also had wide experience developing relationships with a variety of customers, some large corporate clients like Saks Fifth Avenue, others smaller "mom/pop" retailers. I have also worked extensively direct to consumer.
I have have adapted to a changing business envirnment, particularly with respect to the digital revolution that we are in the midst of. I am a certified software consultant in Salesforce, a leading CRM (customer relationship management) tool and have knowledge of other software solutions for a variety of business processes.
I am a sympathetic to those with a dream of owning or building their own business and can offer practical suggestions as well as help chart a roadmap for an aspiring or even a seasoned entrepreneur.
