This book should be required reading for anyone - ANYONE - wanting to open a retail shop. In my real life, I'm own a bookkeeping service business. Some of what she talks about relates, but really this is geared towards those looking to open retail. Several of my clients could have used with a good read or two of this particular book. It's a great big dose of reality.
Not only that, but my husband opened a retail business 5 or so years ago. Let's just say he works with me in my bookkeeping business now *laugh*
I also went to the store's website and it looks like they closed in March 2008. I'm interested to see what happened in her next book.
If you are thinking of, considering, anything to do with a retail business. Read this book first. Every single word in there was very relevant.
