Hi and welcome! I’m Kathy Cruz, a fellow retail business owner – you can consider me your Retail Business Guide and Coach. I know it can be overwhelming when you first visit a website and try to figure out where to go next. So I’m going to keep this simple….

Retail business owners come in all shapes and sizes, from brick and mortar store owners, booth vendors to e-commerce only. Your annual revenues vary too….from $20K to $1 million. It doesn’t matter your shape or size. I’m here to help you navigate retail business ownership

  1. Most retailers start with my PODCAST. It’s free, episodes are short and sweet at 20 minutes, and it’s packed with valuable info, lessons and tips. Make sure you subscribe on whatever podcast app you listen to!
  2. The most popular free download I offer is 75 social media prompts for retail business owners. Click HERE to grab it!
  3. If you want to learn about new podcast episodes, educational offers, blog posts, giveaways, the Savvy Shopkeeper Retreat and more… I recommend signing up for my weekly newsletter.
  4. I also created an affordable online “school” for shopkeepers. It’s called the Shopkeeper’s Academy. It’s where you can sign up for group memberships, 1:1 coaching with me and get access to over 100’s video lessons, articles, downloadable resources and much much more. The Academy was created to spare retailers the rabbit hole of Google.
  5. With the podcast, I don’t blog as often as I used to but on occasion I do publish new blog posts, you can check out the BLOG here.
  6. I’m all about working smarter not harder and one of my favorite topics is time management and automating my own retail business as much as possible so I love to recommend software, services and tools for shopkeepers – you can check out my recommendations HERE.
  7. Last but not least, I am extremely passionate about helping retailers work less, profit more and grow! It’s possible to not only pay yourself but also learn how to read and understand your P&L so you can make strategic decisions about your business… it’s also possible to work less. I promise! Your life shouldn’t be built around your business I teach you how to build your business around YOUR LIFE. You can learn more about me HERE.
