Finding the data to grow your store, safety starts with great engagement, looking to the 4th quarter and more
Great discussion this week with our guest host, Scott Smith! We discussed stories like: Why is data king for struggling retailers post-COVID? Historically, data has been a retailer's pain point. Many lack the time, the staff, and funds to track, analyze, and utilize it but it is an excellent opportunity for sustained business growth. Scott shares why data will help retailers going forward. Safety in retail? The Manitoba government has recently created a new task force to address the problem and we discuss what retailers can do more of or better to make their store a safe environment. The answer may surprise you. Being the best little card shop isn't about having everything; it's about having the right things. A story about Paper Source and how their working closely with small makers has enabled them to grow with emerging trends and add over 350 new cards to their assortment since March. Projections are in for the fourth quarter of 2020 and things are looking up. We discuss our thoughts on the upcoming holiday season. There are a lot of people that are more willing to rent furniture rather than fork over the expensive price tag of owning it, we discuss the top of Rent versus buy retail opportunities. And finally, the story that will be around for some time, we chatted about the MEC sale and they value they have put on data. Data they say that forms the greatest part of the value in this deal. Special thanks to our Guest Host, Scott Smith this week.

Steps to retail recovery with Bob Negen of WhizBang! Retail Training
We were very thankful to have Bob on the podcast to discuss ways that retailers can start thinking about recovery and the steps to get through this challenging time.  Bob Negen founded the Mackinaw Kite Co., a small chain of specialty toy and kite stores, in 1981 when he was only 23 years old. He had just graduated from college, didn’t want to get a “real job” and loved flying kites. It didn’t take long for him to realize that his passion for his product was not enough to make him profitable and he then spent the next twenty years learning how to be a successful merchant. He made more mistakes than you can shake a stick at, but manage to survive and earn the status of “battle tested retail veteran”. In 1999 he and his wife Susan founded WhizBang! Training to help independent retailers thrive in today’s super-competitive market. Bob says “no matter what you sell the secret to success is to give your customers the kind of experience that makes your business memorable and parlaying that first experience into a highly profitable long-term relationship”. Bob and his wife Susan are recognized as leading retail experts, are the creators of both the acclaimed Retail Mastery System, The Retail Sales Academy and the Retail Success Summit. Bob is a well know retail keynote speaker and trainer and has given over a 1000 speeches in 50 different retail industries.

A timely and thought provoking discussion with Ashley Alderson of The Boutique Hub.
Having so much respect and admiration for Ashley, it was a real pleasure to have her join us on the Wealthy Retailer podcast. This was a very timely and thought provoking discussion at a time when our retail community needs new inspiration and guidance.  The Boutique Hub Founder Ashley Alderson first started The Hub based on her desire to shop boutiques around the world, regardless of her rural location. Hailing from North Dakota where her nearest shopping opportunity was over 300 miles away, she longed for a place online she could go to find and shop the boutiques she loved together in one place. What happened next was pretty exciting. Once launched, Ashley’s formal background in small business development and marketing began to foster a deeper community at the 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 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, cancer survivor, speaker of sarcasm, and heart for those with a dream.

Encouragement, luck and a leap into retail with Laura Oladokun of Sweet Boutique
We had a great conversation with Laura Oladokun, owner of Sweet Boutique and learned about her journey into the world of retail. As a mother of 5 and after 15 years of raising her kids while caring for other children at home, she was encouraged by a friend, some luck and a leap of faith which brought her into the retail world. She felt St. Albert was lacking a boutique for every woman, and Sweet Boutique was created. Sweet Boutique was established in 2014 as a shop for women to find on-trend, casual clothing as well as accessories and jewellery to complete the look. It has expanded to include all-natural apothecary and children's wear. We strive to find quality pieces that fit every budget and every body, carrying regular and plus sizes. All of our clothing is comfortable, flattering and made of the softest fabrics available. Jewellery is sourced from local designers and the apothecary section is the best we could find in natural hair, body and skin care. You can learn more about them at: https://sweet-boutique.ca Be sure to follow them as well on their Facebook page for all kinds of fun. https://www.facebook.com/sweetboutique.stalbert The Wealthy Retailer is hosted by Dan Holman.

An experiential retail conversation with Effing Seafood's Rob Tryon
We tiptoed into a different retail category with an energetic conversation with Rob Tryon, the owner of Effing Seafoods (great name!)  So much fun as we learned about his start, their time at farmer's markets, starting brick and mortar retail operations, subscription services and more. Join us for this one, you won't be disappointed.  ABOUT: Rob Tryon has been surrounded by the ocean and seafood since birth. In fact, he’s convinced that salt water runs through his veins. His personal connection to the seafood and fishing industry sets him apart from the rest. His entrepreneurial drive paired with his education in fisheries and aquaculture, and experience in commercial fishing and oyster farming makes his business, Effing Seafoods, a force to be reckoned with. So, what’s the story behind “Effing” Seafoods? When Rob was shellfish farming, he was looking for a unique way to brand his oysters. They were grown in a small inlet called Effingham Inlet, Barkley Sound, just off the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Because of this, he dubbed them "Effing Oysters". Just like that, the name immediately began to draw attention from chefs, seafood buyers, foodies and the general public.  He not only saw an impressive increase in sales, but started being approached by many for online interviews and promotional videos. To this day, after being out of the industry for years, he still gets recognized as the Effing Oyster guy. He’s carving out that same name in the Edmonton area too! An unbeatable drive and passion for his trade has catapulted him into the public spotlight as a seafood and fish purveyor that the city has never seen before. https://www.effingseafoods.com The Wealthy Retailer is hosted by Dan Holman.

The passion of retail, people and home interiors with Leanne Mohagen of Simone & Ivy
We had an amazing chat with Leanne as we learned about her entrepreneurial journey to starting her new retail store Simone & Ivy. Leanne currently resides in St. Albert, Alberta with her husband and 3 teenage girls where she owns Simone & Ivy - Beautiful Living.  Simone & Ivy is a "everything interior" store based around interior design & decorating, window fashions, retail and a beautiful floral studio. Leanne's love for interior decor began in 2008 when she started a small home based window covering company in Regina, Saskatchewan - which quickly grew to one of the largest franchises in North America!  She attributes the companies success to her love for helping people get excited about their home - and most importantly - about making the process FUN! Leanne deeply believes that connection and contribution to her community is the most rewarding aspect of owning a local business, and strives to listen daily to how she can best serve her customers.

Looking up and ahead with Janel Dickin of Hye Fashion
Janel is nothing if not authentic! She loves helping people feel great and her passion for doing so has been the driving force behind her love of retail operations, which was sparked when her retail journey officially began in the 1990’s. Although Janel’s formal education is not in retail, she was always drawn back to it. She dabbled in making people feel great through fashion, giftware and home goods retail, while attending university as well as while working at her full-time career. Janel spent over a decade in academia, where she honed her skills in data analysis. Although she had an incredible career, something was still missing. Her fire for helping people and making a difference needed to be lit. After returning home from an epic three month sabbatical to South America, Janel’s fire was stronger than ever! She worked tirelessly for over a year on her business plan (and manual labour), and in 2010 Janel opened Hye Fashion, Edmonton’s premiere destination offering style for every height! As a specialty retailer serving an incredibly unique demographic, Janel has been faced with countless challenges that most retailers never see...and she is grateful for them. She always views obstacles as opportunities to make her a better retailer (and an even better retail business coach)! As a result of her experiences with her own business coaches, Janel was inspired to help people in another way - retailers face challenges unlike any other businesses and with Janel’s real-world experience, she was inspired to share her experiences with other retailers to help ease their journeys. In 2016, Janel became a certified Management One Affiliate and Retail Business Coach. Since then Janel has proudly partnered with retailers across North America to help them free up cash, create marketing plans, develop merchandising strategies, solve staffing challenges, improve vendor relations and ultimately, help those who operate retail businesses fall back in love with what they do! In 2019, Janel founded Authentic Consulting Group, where she uses her genuine personality and real-world experience to help inspire retailers to implement realistic, effective strategies that operate their businesses more efficiently and profitably.

One on one with Brad Leyden, owner of Revolution Boutique
We had an informative retail chat with Brad Leyden, owner and President of Revolution Boutique.  Born and raised in Edmonton, Brad now resides in Sherwood Park. He always was an entrepreneur. Even as a kid, he had a lot of self-employed relatives as mentors that sparked that entrepreneurial fire.   With only his first year of business administration at NAIT and the fact that he never worked a day in retail, he opened his first store in Sherwood Park. It was actually his ex-wife’s idea!  He truly believes that everyone has a calling and the best part of his business is that when he wakes up in the morning, he couldn’t imagine himself doing anything else. He enjoys golf, the pursuit of a private pilot’s licence and hanging out with his two beautiful daughters Emma and Abby. https://www.revolutionboutique.ca/ https://www.facebook.com/RevolutionBoutiqueCanada/ https://www.instagram.com/revolution_boutique/ The Wealthy Retailer, with host Dan Holman.
