Podcast: What One Thing to Do (and to Avoid) for Success in 2018  2/12/2018

For this year's first On the Shelf Flash Topic podcast -- in which the panelists (of which I am one of them) are emailed the topic ten minutes prior to the podcast recording -- the group discussed two key ideas for suppliers looking for success in the coming year. The topics were:

  • What is one thing any Entrepreneur can do this year to gain an edge?
  • What is one thing any Entrepreneur should stop doing this year to maintain their edge?
The discussion ran the gamut from marketing strategies, to health and wellness, to personal growth and education, and includes a lot of great insights for entrepreneurs looking to succeed at retail.
