Jen currently lives in Boston, Massachusetts with her six indoor plants. Some questions asked and some meant to be asked: Tell us who you are and your story There are a couple misconceptions some people have about abuse 1- Abuse is normally physical when in reality it can be worse than that 2 – Anyone that is in an abusive relationship had a choice to leave immediately when in reality it’s not that straightforward How do you use what you learned the hard way, to help other women? Are there any signs when starting a relationship that it could be abusive? Someone that is on a first relationship has nothing to compare to, so there’s a chance they don’t know its abusive? How about your parent’s relationship, could you use that as a comparison? In some situations a bad parent relationship can make your bad relationship seem normal, do you agree? Going through abusive relationships, it would have been very easy for anyone to just assume, “I am not enough” or ” I deserve this”… So, how can someone going through that right now, find self-love and know that nobody deserves it, and you have the power to stop it Besides abusive relationships, there’s also work relationship abuse. Like mentally abusive bosses. I’ve been through that and it took me many years to even realize I was in Extras Jen Moff has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication and Public Relations.

He is also my boss lol Back in 2015 Quin created a brand of baby products and started by launching a few Baby swaddle blankets, but something was wrong. After almost a month of preparing a great launch, the product stopped selling and he couldn’t figure out why, until he decided to “kill” the brand and told his wife. Allison told him that she wouldn’t have bought them either, because the mother always needs a bigger quantity of these swaddles because the babies get them dirty very often. Quin decided to give up the brand anyway since his efforts were better of spent elsewhere and he could use the cash flow on the more successful brands. This is one of Quin Amorim’s Fail Fast Stories.

 #19 Salena Knight - How to get your product to retail stores | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:12:32

How to get your product to store shelves Today’s guest came from nothing, at the age of 14 she was left by her mother who thought that being a mom was too hard! Well… Some people break, Others bend. Our guest is the one who bends. Instead of going off the rails, she worked hard to do the best she could with what she had been dealt. Today she is a multi-award winning business woman who has built a hugely successful chain of retail stores, a far cry from being homeless at 14. Ladies and gentleman here with us, today is: Salena Knight -Wow, Salena at the age of 14 your mom left how does a kid ever heal from that? -Your dad was gay, but he wasn’t open about it. I’m guessing it was just fear of others opinions? -You moved house over 10 times by the time you were 14, was it due to your parent’s work or business? -You became a The Retail Strategist, can you explain to our audience what that is? -What should I have ready before I approach a retailer? -How can I stand out from other brands and get my products in front of the buyer? -How do I choose which stores to approach? -What do I do if a retailer says no? -How does pricing work, will the retailer want to decide the price? -What are certain mandatory things in packaging? How to get your product to retail After many years working as an arborist, Salena looked 20 years into the future and realized she did not want what she saw. Despite being the only female managing teams of men, she knew she wanted to take charge of her life. Having come from nothing, she knew she had nothing to lose. This is a woman who grew up in a home without a lot of love, with a mother with a panache for drama, a father who was gay (but was unable to express himself) and moving house over 10 times by the time she was 14. One of the biggest moves of her life was when, at 14, her mother unceremoniously dumped her with other family members because she did not want to “mother” anymore. It was “too hard”. Shipped off the interstate with just a suitcase of clothes, to live with her elderly grandparents. She successfully completed high school early, at 15. But when they could no longer care for her, she was truly on her own. She was 16 and having to not only find somewhere to live but also how to support herself… But tenacity is Salena’s middle name and instead of wallowing in self-pity, she began her career as a horticulturist. During the next decade and a half, Salena discovered that she was great at growing businesses. So, she set out to grow her own. In just 7 years, Salena built a hugely successful chain of retail stores, a far cry from being homeless at 14. Now, with a decade of retail experience under her belt, Salena is a multi-award winning business woman, who has been shaped by adversity but always turning these obstacles into profitable and useful ventures. With her straight-talking advice and training, Salena has helped hundreds of retailers around the world, to increase their sales and profits. Book: The Dip – Seth Godin The Book in Three Sentences * Winners quit the right stuff at the right time. * People settle for good enough instead of best in the world. * Being well rounded is not the secret to success.   Links: Https:// Home   Salena Knight’s free products download:
