Building a retail business
In episode 29, I chat with Hana Glover all about building a retail business the age of 18. Hana is the owner of the Bead Shop in Nottingham, where she also holds craft workshops. She’s also recently launched a new side to her business, in retail business mentoring. I can’t think of anyone else better qualified to help you with a retail business than Hana. The Bead Shop has recently celebrated the shop’s 19th birthday so she certainly has some experience to share!
Things we talked about:
The reality of starting a business at the age of 18
The financial climate and how this affected the ability to take out business loans
Diversifying your income, and the benefits of doing that
The importance of showing the face behind the brand, even for retail spaces
The rise of workshops and a demand for experiences
The benefits of having a mentor work alongside you, especially in the early days of establishing a business
