EPISODE NOTES **Please remember to rate and review the podcast - it really helps others to find it.** Today on the podcast I'm re-releasing a conversation I recorded with Catherine Erdly last September about how to prepare for Christmas. Catherine is the founder of the Resilient Retail Club. Catherine worked in the retail sector for two decades, working with household names such as Coast, Laura Ashley and Paperchase. She now helps product businesses start, grow and scale profitable businesses that last through her group membership and 1-2-1 consulting. Catherine shares the best things that you can do as a product-based business in the run-up to Christmas to help yourself and boost sales. I came away from the podcast with the sense I was sharing it all too late, and actually summer is when you need to start prepping for Christmas.
