Last week on Maker’s Row Live, I had the pleasure of interviewing one of our long-time contributing bloggers, Syama Meagher. Syama’s extensive background in the fashion industry led her to starting Scaling Retail– the consulting company globally for startup and growth stage fashion business. As CEO, Syama specializes in helping entrepreneurs with sales, marketing and merchandising for wholesale, ecommerce and brick & mortar.
After an hour long chat, it was hard to narrow down the best tips. There was so much great advice that I definitely recommend checking out the full interview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YE6ZllVAFCo.
