The Shopkeeper's Academy is here!

Learning for women retailers who "wear all the hats"

The Shopkeeper's Academy was designed for this woman...

You are a a solopreneur, or you might have one or a few employees, but YOU wear all the hats and you’re overwhelmed

You want more time for family, friends, hobbies, and rest

You want more profit

You want to pay yourself

You’re willing to invest in yourself and your business but you don’t have $2000 to invest in a program

You are overwhelmed, but you genuinely want to learn and you’re willing to do the work to make your business all that it can be

You want to learn but you’re not sure what to buy or who to buy it from - because you aren’t an online service based business

You want someone that speaks to YOU because you don't have the retail business generating millions in sales each year with multiple locations

You need content and learning that is tailored to YOU and you want it organized and easy to use

Learning at your own pace is great but a little accountability and guidance is helpful

Choose Your Learning Style

Member’s Hub – This is the free area for Academy members, you’ll find free downloadable PDF files for all shopkeepers, sign up and you’ll also get automatic access to the Shopkeeper’s Toolkit – a list of resources I recommend for retail business owners

Shopkeeper’s Learning Library – This is a yearly subscription and self guided option.  The Library will be filled with video workshops, downloadable files and more – divided by Modules and Lessons  that range from Financial Management to Social Media to Inventory Management and more.  You’ll also find a Maker’s module!


Master Shopkeepers – take the Learning Library and add community along with monthly group calls, quarterly individual calls with Kathy and much more!  Master Shopkeepers is currently closed to new members – this membership will open again in October


Get Your Shop Seen – this is a full marketing course and coaching program for the retail store owner who feels fairly confident with her business skills and time management, but you need more people in your door or visiting your online shop.

About Me

I started my retail journey with my sister when we started a DIY blog and social media accounts in 2013.  Soon after we opened an Etsy Shop and within 18 months we found our brick and mortar location.  6 months later we opened our home decor boutique.  I couldn’t find a blog or retail expert who spoke to ME – the independent retail store owners trying to learn and do it all.  So I started Savvy Shopkeeper in 2016 and I’ve been educating retail store owners since.
