You want a system, you want to learn, you want reasonable work hours, and you want to GROW.
But do you struggle with…
No time? Exactly. Let me teach you how to fix this; setting up systems and processes in your business is KEY to working less hours while growing at the same time.
No money? This challenge is an investment into turning that around! Learn about important metrics and benchmarks so you can start making decisions that will help you PROFIT.
Get ready to work less, profit more & grow!
No matter the size of your retail business, you CAN cut hours of work from your work week and grow at the same time.
In this challenge, you’ll receive lessons, tools and downloadable resources so you can build your own Retail CEO Planner AND most importantly, become the CEO of your own business.
You can search Google for everything I’ll teach in this challenge but you won’t find clear answers. The independent retail industry is oftentimes elusive. However, I’m here to be transparent.
I teach through ACTIONABLE WORKSHOPS not overarching or high overview presentations. We get into the nitty gritty and I love sharing RELATABLE examples because I’ve worked with hundreds of indie retailers like you.

Do you constantly work IN your business instead of ON your business?
I’ve been in your shoes.. and there is a better way!
I still OWN a store myself! I am a retail store owner who’s dedicated years of my journey to learning so I can be the retail expert who has actually done the work. I KNOW what it takes to grow without exhausting or burning myself out. Been there, done that – and I never want to go back!
The 2022 Retail CEO Challenge
The challenge where you’ll learn what it takes to grow a brick and mortar retail business while cutting hours from your work week, no fluff here!
You’ll receive made-for-you downloadable resources that will save you time
so you can confidently become the CEO of your store.
Let’s get down to business
Here’s what I’ll cover…
We’ll meet every Monday for four weeks on Zoom where I’ll teach LIVE at 2pm EST.
Can’t make it live? No biggie! You’ll get access to the replays for 60 days!
WEEK 1 – Monday, January 17, 2022
Systems and Processes
“The Well Oiled Machine: How to Create Systems & Processes to Help Your
Retail Business Run Efficiently”, join me for a live presentation where I’ll walk you through the steps I take to create systems in my own business and I’ll share examples of several retail store systems so you can learn how to apply this concept to your own business. The more systems you put into place, the more efficient your business becomes.
WEEK 2 – Monday, January 24, 2022
Planning & Tracking
One step to becoming the CEO of your retail business is to SCHEDULE CEO time for yourself. We all work IN our business but this is dedicated time to work ON your business. If you don’t give this to yourself, no one else will! In this session I’ll walk you through all of the planning and tracking worksheets provided in a bundle prior to this class. You can use these to create a CEO binder for yourself and your business.
WEEK 3 – Monday, January 31, 2022
Business Health Check-up
Whether you’ve been in business one year or 20 years, conducting a business health check-up is something we often neglect. In fact, you probably haven’t does this before! Prior to this session, you’ll receive my 2-page Business Health Check-Up Checklist and a goal setting sheet. It’s important to check-in but equally important to then set goals and create a plan to ACHIEVE those goals!
WEEK 4, Monday, February 7, 2022
Metrics & Benchmarks
This is an area where the Independent Retail Industry tends to be elusive. How do we know what our AOV should be? How do we know if our SPSF is comparable to other stores like ours? What IS a good online conversion rate for retail businesses like ours? In this session, you’ll receive a copy of the Savvy Shopkeeper Year-End Retail Report so not only will you learn about these metrics but you can calculate these for your OWN business. Knowledge is power and this is how you GROW!
