Episode #38: Looking at the Evolution of Wholesale, with FashionGo CEO, Daniel Lee

That’s right, Ashley chatted with FashionGo’s CEO Daniel Lee. They breakdown where the wholesale industry has been, what it’s doing now, and what’s on the horizon. FashionGo and other online wholesalers make it possible for boutique owners to shift their buying strategy on a weekly basis rather than yearly or quarterly, and that is changing the game.

Pssst. If you aren’t analyzing your POS data to adjust your buying strategy you need to be! Check out the Hub’s training library for more info.
