Running a business is a full-time job. There’s so much to keep track of, and it takes serious focus to stay on top of everything. Now imagine running TWO!
Introducing, Mary Ann Saville…
Mary Ann owns two different businesses, Vedeli Designs, and VDI Jewelry Findings. She started our Strategic Online Sales Accelerator (SOS) at the beginning of this year, and her sales are already up by 40%! She anticipates that the number will be closer to 75-80% by the end of this year.
Talk about record growth!
When I heard about Mary Ann, I was so inspired, I wanted to get her on the podcast pronto. I’m always going on about how great SOS is, so I think it’s about time I had someone on who can talk about the benefits firsthand.
And who better to conduct the interview than F&TA Community Director and SOS Director Jessica Gebauer?!
I met Jess three years ago when she applied to Flourish & Thrive Academy. At the time, she was fed-up with the archaic way most of the jewelry industry operates. I was so impressed by her passion for our mission, I just knew I had to hire her.
Now, Jess works closely with our SOS students, and she and Mary Ann hit it off from the get-go.
The two got together to talk about how Mary Ann was able to transform her businesses so quickly, with just a few simple changes.
