Key Takeaways

“Put yourself passionately in charge and get what you want!”

  • Stephanie has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and she attended business program and wrote a business plan directly in the college
  • Stephanie sells her creations mostly through Instagram and she uses flash sales on her website. Then she sells on the local art shows and art festivals. This is, however, a lot more work because she has to work with inventory and forecasts. Selling online is more efficient
