Posted by Robin Abel on

With Small Business Saturday happening soon, I thought it would be nice to share some of great experiences I've had with small businesses over the past few years.  It's been an amazing journey owning a small business and it's really opened my eyes to their strengths especially when it comes to treating people with respect and going the extra mile.   Before we opened the store, there were 2 solid months of finding local people who had products to offer.  I went to farmers markets and craft shows as well as asking other businesses for suggestions.  One day I walked...

How do you make decisions?

Posted by Robin Abel on

Thankfully my husband is a pretty quick decision maker.  I won't call him good at it because that might make his head big but it's always amazing how quickly he makes a decision when I've been thinking about it for a week.  I like to think it's because I've condensed a weeks worth of thoughts into a 10 minute conversation but it probably has more to do with he is a guy and I'm a girl.  (Men, keep your mouth closed!) I had been thinking about a certain supplier over the last week.  They give me a hard time when I...
