I feel as if I've been waiting my entire professional career to meet and work with Chris. It feels remarkable to have her passion and advice during this exciting time in the retail industry.
Merchant Method has single-handedly helped me grow my business, motivating me and my team to be the best boutique we can be. And Chris’ knowledge, experience, confidence, and positive energy toward all matters retail are unparalleled.
Merchant Method is the greatest thing to happen to us!
Since working with Chris, my business is more profitable, my work/life balance is way better, and my employees are happier. She is both knowledgeable about traditional business management practices and wise to the new ways of running a small business. It's a perfect combination!
I contacted Merchant Method when, after a big move in my business life, I realized I needed some more professional training. I was looking specifically for a company with amazing retail and management expertise, and boy, Merchant Method is that company!
Save yourself time and money and hire Merchant Method.
Through Chris’ extensive knowledge, enthusiasm, and undying love of retail business, Merchant Method helped me create a vision and strategic road map for my retail business that is bigger than I could have imagined, knocking apart any pricing and marketing blocks I had.
After a number of years in the business, it was eye opening to realize a straightforward way to effectively systematize employee development.
Ever since we attended Merchant Method’s Employee Development Workshop, we’ve been putting into practice what we learned. The seminar helped us focus on the fundamentals of managing our current staff and selection of future employees.
With Chris’ guidance, we understand how to clarify our expectations to achieve more effective results — creating a positive work environment for all.
Merchant Method changed the way I approach selling and marketing. Chris helped me dial in on the most important steps to gracefully re-brand my business and product assortment and her genuine excitement about my business makes me want to work that much harder.
The formulas and methods of developing gross profit margins has taken the guess work out of pricing and made me confident in my pricing strategy.
I look forward to working with Merchant Method again in the future!
I had reviewed my overall cash flow for my business to a very granular degree, but Merchant Method provides a zoom-in on retail financial management.
It complements the cash flow analysis well, which created a balanced view of the health and growth of my retail shop.
Not to mention, it was fun!
Working with Merchant Method has been one of the best decisions I could've made ─ not only for myself but also for my business, staff, family, and friends.
I went into the Merchant Method for Retailers program a complete wreck and came out feeling more in control of my business.
I will always remember the first time I met Chris. She told me that she was going to teach me to control my business instead of allowing my business to control me, and that is what she did!
Bravo!!! Thank you so much I will forever be grateful.
What made the Retail Profit workshop really valuable was being able to apply what I learned to my business immediately. It allowed me to make immediate improvements to my gross profit margins and made me more confident in the process.
My margins are no longer a vague average of numbers that I came to based on guessing. After this workshop I began making better decisions in all areas of my retail business.
I highly recommend the Merchant Method workshops! Chris is an engaging instructor and gives really clear explanations.
Merchant Method will put your business through its paces, ask tough questions, hold you accountable and (in the end) bring you out on the other side with amazing results.
I consider working with Merchant Method my business therapy. I cried, laughed, cheered, and trudged through the mud of business ownership with Chis by my side.
She was a constant source of information and guidance, and helped me generate more self confidence than I could have imagined.
Merchant Method gave me the tools to effectively manage my business with the big picture in mind instead of focusing solely on the day-to-day, which was overwhelming
Instead of guessing, Merchant Method gave me realistic management practices to implement. We worked on retail skills including calendar management, effective vendors communications, and retail math.
As retail business owners, we are surrounded by the public all day, every day. It can be quite isolating. My shoulder-to-shoulder work with Chris was like my weekly retail therapy session and it enabled me to ask questions of a retail veteran rather than guess what to do next.
I can't recommend Merchant Method enough. I love Chris!
VIP Coaching for Retailers is stellar! Meeting with Merchant Method gave my business the kick-start it needed.
Chris' patience and attention to detail helped me fine tune my website and inventory. There was so much to learn and absorb ─ my brain just wants more!
You can't beat the one-on-one attention that Chris gives. I am thrilled to say the goals we set during our session were met. The timeline we laid out together continue to help me stay focused and on track.
I give a standing ovation for Merchant Method!
