What Kathy Believes In…
Retail business owners can be passionate about running their businesses without working 60+ hour weeks so they can spend time doing other things they enjoy.
B&M Retailers can beat the stigma around math and numbers. Learning how to set up systems so they can get insight into their business AND understand their P&L is possible!
When store owners realize they can stop overworking and start focusing on profit, Kathy teaches them how to start implementing growth strategies!
