Once upon a time, boutiques were elusive creatures that were difficult to find online. That’s when our Founder Ashley Alderson first started The Hub based on her desire to shop boutiques around the world, regardless of her rural location.
Once launched, Ashley’s formal background in small business development and marketing began to foster a deeper community at The Boutique Hub. Ashley noticed that these owners she featured needed a greater voice in fashion, specialized coaching and training, and a central point to connect, collaborate, share tips and find tools to grow their businesses.
Today, Ashley passionately leads The Boutique Hub and it’s two sides of its platform, while still coaching and mentoring many boutique owners, and being an advocate for small businesses in fashion. She is a wife, busy momma of 3, jewelry junkie, barrel racer, a cancer survivor, speaker of sarcasm, and heart for those with a dream.
