The Power of Community and Collaboration with Anna Ledebuhr, Coulee Boutique

I am so excited to be joined today by my friend Amy DeFauw, who is a multi-state multi-storeowner and has a wealth of experience as the CEO and owner of Katsch Boutique.

Today we’re talking all about retail art vs retail science — retail art being the love of the product, customers and marketing as opposed to retail science, i.e. the numbers, inventory management, financing and metrics. And we dive into what it takes to make the retail science side of your business come to life, allowing those numbers and spreadsheets to really speak to you.

Amy shares her approach to growing and managing multiple locations and a successful team, the lessons she learned along the way and how she cut out the overwhelm by systemizing her business!
