Barron’s (May 16, 2016) has reported that Macy’s stock price has slipped 15%, Kohl’s is down double digits and even Nordstrom was down almost 9%.  However, consumer spending was up, especially online sales. Does this spell the end for brick and mortar stores?  Hardly!  When was the last time you enjoyed an online meal?  Not a meal ordered from a restaurant online and then had it delivered, but even if you did, it’s not the same as going out to dine at a restaurant. Dining out is an event. Big Retail needs to understand the same dynamics about shopping. Not all shopping is an event, but some of it is and more of it should be.

Formula car racing and executive leadership have plenty of things in common.  CEOs, like race car drivers, need to call upon fast reflexes, steady nerves and a miles-long strategy perspective that constantly monitors and adapts to competitors, operating conditions and team performance.

I founded my business as a sole proprietorship in 2000 and struggled for many years through the normal growing pains associated with a start-up – deciding when and where to invest, identifying new target markets and prospects, and determining when the time was right to add new staff or services.  After 13 years of modest but steady growth, my company began to take off, doubling year-over-year revenue and adding new clients in record numbers.  This rapid growth earned us a spot on the Inc. 5000 and me the honor of being name to the Impact 50, a ranking of the 50 most influential female leaders of Inc. 5000 companies, as well as numerous top entrepreneur awards and accolades.
