So, I wanted to put together five of the most common questions I get asked regarding shop ownership. I hope it’s helpful!

What I’ve Learned From My Sales Tripling

On August 21st, 2018 something wild happened. My 2018 Fall products went live and chaos ensued. Well, not really chaos. But kind of.

Excited, overwhelmed, sold out of products, limited on time, and tired, I was suddenly faced with a large amount of orders to ship and not enough time.
