The difference between a thriving retail store and an average one comes down to the details.

After all, a simple 1% change to your inventory could mean tens of thousands of dollars in your pocket, or tens of thousands of dollars in the hole. The truth is that when it comes to running an independent retail store, there’s a lot you don’t know.
It’s why I created the RETAILMavens Profit Club.
For the first time ever you’ll get business coaching and specialized trainings, but you’ll also receive customized support and guidance on your marketing, employee situations and more!

You’re an independent retailer. Congratulations.

We consider you the backbone of the American economy.

Without you, most consumers would all be living at malls. OK, most already do.

Many consumers like the big box stores. They like them because they can buy commodities at cheap prices that have no bearing on their lives.

But not you.

As an independent retailer your goal is to make a difference in your customer’s lives. To sell the products you want to sell to the people you want to sell to.

It’s an amazing idea. Only the reality is that it’s a heck of a lot harder than you’d expect.

If you’re here, right now, then the odds are that “stress” is a word you intimately know.

You likely feel as though for every dollar that comes in your store, another dollar (or more) goes back out just to keep you afloat…

You wonder if you need a magic 8 ball to better predict what your customers actually want to buy, and at what price you should sell them…

You often feel as though you are being held hostage by your employees who lack the leadership, drive, or commitment to the vision of your business…

You’re also wanting to know all the things you just don’t know about running a retail business…

To put it bluntly, you wonder if it’s possible to make a profit in this business!
I get it. Trust me, I get it.

And before I go ANY farther, let me tell you that you absolutely can!

Most of you already know me, but for those who don’t my name is Cathy Donovan Wagner, The RETAILMaven.

I am the owner and founder of RETAILMavens, but before I dedicated my life to helping like-minded retail store owners reach their potential, I was a retail store owner myself.

It wasn’t easy, as I am sure you know. I was young, ambitious and naive. I made many mistakes and almost ended up in bankruptcy a few times. Navigating the ups and downs of a retail business is an incredible challenge. A challenge with a variety of factors that must be carefully executed: Cash flows, inventory management, sales training, hiring and firing employees… you understand where I am coming from.

I started three successful stores before I started RETAILMavens. For almost 15 years I successfully navigated the ups and downs of a retail business and I learned from my mistakes. I have spent the last almost 20 years sharing these successful practices with my fellow retailers.

I know what it is like to stress over making payroll, ordering inventory and hiring employees.
I also know what it is like when you don’t have to stress about any of those things. (Hint: It’s much better.)

If you’re wanting something more like I did, I’d like you to meet the RETAILMavens Profit Club.

Here are the actual program results:
  • Our Profit Club clients averaged an increase of 16.1% in sales for the year with a decrease of 19.9% in inventory. And even more cool stuff!
  • One client is opening a 2nd store
  • Another Client closed an unprofitable store to concentrate on the most profitable one
    One is moving to a better location
  • Yet another had a serious health situation come up and we helped her decide to retire and are showing her how to sell her business profitably
  • And more importantly, many are effectively marketing for the first time ever – they have a plan….
The Profit Club is an all-new yearlong program for independent retailers like you who want to:
  • Get better control over their finances
  • Resolve cash flow
  • Take the worry out of their business
  • Make more money, (A LOT more money)
  • Having less stress and more free time
  • Learn how to deal with problem employees
  • Understanding the science of retail.

But if I have to be honest, those are just talking points. There’s a very real reason I created this program.

I know how little changes make a huge difference in your business and your life. I know how even a 10% increase in profits can fundamentally change how you run your business, how you handle your team and what clientele you attract.
I know how lonely it can get as an independent retailer and feel as though you don’t have a community to turn to.
I know what it is like to what it is like to compete with the Nordstroms, Targets and Big Boxes of the world.
I wanted to create a program where like minded retailers can not only learn about all the things they just don’t know, but also give them a place to meet on a regular basis and learn the best tricks to help improve their business. To give you a way to analyze your numbers, make sense of your team, your marketing, and more, because quite simply…There’s nothing I want more than for you to feel secure in your financial future.
The RETAILMavens Profit Club was created with you in mind!

We’re going to help you uncover ALL the hidden cash in your business.
But it is just a small part of The RETAILMavens Profit Club.

It’s really just the tip of the iceberg.

I wanted to spend a bit more time going into real detail about what this program is all about and what we focus on as a member of the Profit Club.

1.
We start by looking at your numbers.

It’s a shocking reality that most retailers ignore their numbers. They get caught up in the big idea of what they sell, that they don’t stop to reflect on what their inventory is costing them and how much money they are throwing away. We uncover the story that your numbers tell us.

We teach you to LOVE the MATH THAT MAKES YOU MONEY.

We can find $5,000 in 15 minutes.
Seriously…each and every time. With help take the mystery out of your profit and loss statements. We transform it into data that can be used to help your business grow. Then we measure your numbers against your industry benchmarks (which is something you won’t find anywhere else in the world!).

After working with us, you’ll know:

  • How much you should be paying your landlord
  • How much you should be spending on advertising and marketing
  • How much you should be paying your team
  • Precisely how much you should be paying yourself (Yes, you should be paying yourself!)

We look at your inventory levels to see if they are in alignment with your sales, or if you are just tripping over cash on your sales floor.

We do things like share a simple strategy you can implement right now that will guarantee a 10% increase in your sales. Yes. Guaranteed. AND best of all, we are right there next to you. Ready to answer any questions you have as you implement it.

2.
Clarify your vision and your direction for what they want to achieve.
Is your dream to have more stores? Or do you want to double the business in your current location? Maybe you want more time off? Or maybe you want all 3?
3.
Strategize your actions.
“If you want to achieve this result, how are we going to make it happen?” We identify the fastest path to get results.
4.
Reach the RIGHT Customers

Next we work on your marketing.

We all know that there are enough good and valuable marketing ideas to fill an apple tree! We’ll show you what will work for you right now! We point out that low hanging fruit.

You’ll learn:

  • The right time to reach the RIGHT customers
  • How to “market” instead of “advertise”
  • What you need to take action on right now
  • What you can wait 6 months to do

We will identify YOUR very own customized fastest marketing path to cash.

5.
We help you build a Rockstar Team

Yes, you can build a team of rockstars who love, love, love to sell!
Without tapping into the world of science, you can clone yourself (every retailer’s dream!!) and delegate the drudge work so you can focus on building your business.

You’ll learn step by step processes to put together a rockstar team, including how to:

  • Identify what you are looking for
  • Hold your team accountable to their responsibilities
  • Keep your team motivated
  • Fire someone who isn’t working out

There is a science to every part of retail, and we have it down cold. We understand that the more team you have, the more complex communication gets. We will help make sure it is all working towards achieving your goals of more sales!!

6.
Act Like the #ceo You Are

All along the way, we are working to help you establish your #CEO mentality.
If you want to have a bigger store, you have be and think bigger.

We’ll teach you:

  • The truth of your most valuable possession (no, it’s not YOU) and how to keep from running it into the ground
  • How to put your productivity on overdrive while eliminating many of your current daily tasks
  • How to quit wasting everyone’s team
  • Why you need to step into your role as leader

You CAN lead your team to huge success, but first you have to know where to put your focus and where to let it go.

Plus, you get the support of a community of retailers that all want to grow like you!

7.
We teach all kinds of new ways to generate more sales and better profit margins.
From helping you to negotiate with your vendors to new sources for items. We are always sharing what items to bring in that will generate more profit and revenue than you ever thought imaginable.
8.
Finally, we connect with you an amazing community.
Support is the key to success. Part of what has made our company so successful is bringing together like minded independent retailers who want to grow and succeed like you! It’s easy to think you should keep all your ideas to yourself, but the reality is there’s enough for everyone, and within our private community we’ve seen ideas and strategies that have generated thousands of dollars and more for our clients.

Get rid of your time wasters and stop putting out fires once and for all.

Some of you may have questions or concerns; here are the ones I get most often.

 

“I don’t know if I can afford it.”

This is an investment in your company and in your future. You will make more money than you ever have as a member of the RETAILMavens Profit Club.

Can you afford to NOT make this investment in your business?

If you are reading this, you then you already know your business needs a boost. Otherwise you wouldn’t be on the internet looking for ways to improve your business.

This is the number 1 way to make your store as profitable as possible. This system works if you work. You will look back on this investment as the best investment you ever made in your business. Our clients always do.

“Will I have people helping me out?”
Yes! I wanted to make sure that this program takes care of all of your questions and concerns. As time goes by new challenges and situations arise. It is why I have built custom support, reports, recommendations and unlimited email into the program. You will always have a RETAILMaven in your corner.
“When is the live event?”

The time and dates will be announced soon.
This event is packed full of great content, networking, and fun. You won’t want to miss it! More details on the location soon!

“Can You Guarantee Results?”

I can’t guarantee results and quite frankly I won’t. I can’t guarantee that even if I show you everything you need to know, even if I show you everything you don’t know, even if I walk you through every step of creating a profitable independent retail store…there’s no guarantee you’ll do the work to make it happen.

So instead I’ll share with you my track record of delivering increased annual cash flow every year since 2008 for 93% of my clients.

93%.

So no, there’s no guarantee. But if you show up and work hard, I’d be shocked if you weren’t able to join the ranks of our successful clients.

I wanted to share a recent email we received from one of our clients.
It’s worth paying attention to.

I started RETAILMavens to help retailers thrive, make money, and embrace the life of their dreams.

Running a retail business is a lot of work, and it always will be, but it doesn’t have to be stressful and full of worry. It can be fulfilling and lucrative.

Your opportunity lies in the creative process, in creating an experience that is unique to your store, an experience that keeps them coming back for more.

But in order to compete in a global economy with Big Boxes and Amazon you MUST be smart. You must be expertly trained in the finer details of business, the nuances of retail.

By being a master of your finances, you will be able to not only compete with the big boys, but also outshine them because you bring something to the table that the cookie cutter box stores do not.

You, your taste, your passion, and your personality.

This is ultimately how you will make your mark on the world, but without a solid financial base you will never even get that chance.

The RETAILMavens Profit Club is specifically designed to optimize your business so you will make more money than ever before with less stress and worry.

If you are ready to take your business to the next level then I would like to personally welcome you to the Profit Club.

I look forward to talking with you as a member.
To Your Success,
Cathy Wagner
