“What I’ve learned with all boutiques not just in Idaho, is you can either make them your competition or you can make them your community…I know have a group of boutique besties I talked to almost daily.” -Dani
“You have to be so strong in your WHY, because there are days you are dragging and you have to give it your all.” -Dani
“People just want to know their shopping with people just like them, that they’re not shopping with someone who has it all together, but someone who truly gets where they at in their life too.”-Ashley
“When you target everyone, you reach no one.” -Ashley
