Owning Bookstore, Is it part of your future?

Author Mary Oliver is quoted, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” We read this quote at the close of the full-week workshop retreat.

30418757.thmAll decisions of importance really come down to this, don’t they? We have this one life. What will make us happy, feeling fulfilled, believing at the end that we’ve contributed in some way and enjoyed our time on earth.

Everyone who joins us for retail management training has this in come … the love of reading, appreciation for ideas, and a desire for meaningful work. Ninety-nine percent do not have a bookselling background. Most people who join the book business don’t have retail background either and some have limited business experience. It begins with the passion and can develop from there.

Entrepreneurship requires that we honor the deep longing, learn from those who are successful, develop our own vision, and deliver it all with passion and connection.
