Thank you for checking out the Inspirational Business Owners blog series! I am so happy you get to read about Robin! She is one of the most pleasant people that I know and she has been a great encouragement to me in my entrepreneurship journey. Also, she was one of the first stores to sell RefuTea! Enjoy getting to know her a bit better and swing by her website and Instagram to check out the great products she sells! -Autumn
What is your business and how long have you been in operation?
Michigan Pantry. 4 years
When did you know you wanted to run your own business?
I have had a few other retail businesses in my past. I worked retail in my early 20's (in a larger department store) and often thought about how I would change things if I could! 😊 If only it was my own!! I liked the creative part of working...displays, finding new products, organizing. Having the flexibility of trying new things and changing things up to make it work!
What is one piece of advice you would like to share with fellow entrepreneurs?
Don't be afraid to try to new things (and failing) and trying again!
What are some of your favorite things to do?
... favorite things to do?? lol...if I had time, I would like to take short weekend road trips off the beaten path. I would also love having a real "crafting space" at home! That is all in the future. For now, I like having 30-45 minutes to grab a coffee and browse a book store and relaxing walks in the warm months listening to audio books!
How do you like your tea?
relaxing tea! no caffeine.. bedtime tea.
