By Muse Room Podcast
If you have listened to my solo episode, you'll know that one of the intentions I have this year for the podcast is to interview more creatives outside of Cleveland. So that is what this week's episode is. I am joined by Rachel Wentworth, Co-Founder of the lingerie shop, Forty Winks, and host of Keeping Shop Podcast. I discovered Rachel through her podcast a few months ago. On Keeping Shop, she interviews a wide array of brick and mortar shop owners. It's a really inspiring podcast to listen so I urge you to check it out when you're done listening to this episode. In our conversation we talk about: -Rachel's inspiration to let go and how she got through a period of burnout. -How being an older sibling prepared her to be a good leader in her business. -What it is like having a business partner. -The importance of having a business plan. -What she went through to open a brick and mortar and advice she has for others looking to do the same. -How body positivity plays a role in curating the items for the store. -Why she started a podcast. And so much more! -In the beginning of the episode we mention a book by Marlee Grace titled, "How to Not Always Be Working." You can find the book here. Listen to Marlee's episode of the Let It Out Podcast. Some of my favorite episodes of the Keeping Shop Podcast: -Episode 56: Lacey Prpic Hedtke of The Future (The Future is a shop, artist's residency and magical library) -Episode 52: Sarah Gottesdiener of Modern Women and visualmagic (Sarah is a tarot reader and author of the Many Moons Workbooks) -Episode 49: Sarah Van Dyke of Revel Craft Bar (Revel Craft Bar is literally what it sounds like-a bar where you can hang out and do crafts. Amazing right!?) Here's how you can connect with Rachel: -Visit Forty Winks when you're visiting Cambridge Massachusetts (Or if you live in Boston and haven't gone yet, get there now!) -Listen to Keeping Shop -Follow Forty Winks on Instagram -Follow Keeping Shop on Instagram -Keeping Shop Website -Forty Winks Website Connect with me: -Instagram -Website -Check out my podcast coaching and podcast producing services here. -E-mail me at email@example.com If this podcast brings you value, please consider leaving a review.
