Conference Highlights

Saturday Morning: Keynote Speaker - Sue McCarthy
Open The Door In 24 

Successful people don’t just work harder than most, they work and think in a very different way.  They know that good things come to those who wait but are also smart enough to know that you cannot grow unless you are open to change.  “But that’s how we have always done it” is not a phrase successful people use.  Having an open mind, surrounding yourself with interesting and creative people, and not being afraid to fail are all keys to success.  Sue will demonstrate how you can open the door to your own success through her rich stories and colorful past.

Sue McCarthy, the visionary behind The Vault Luxury Resale, serves as its founder and CEO. The Vault is a multi-million-dollar luxury boutique, located in Brentwood, MO. Sue, along with her daughters, gained widespread recognition as the central figures on Resale Royalty, a reality TV series created by Rachel Zoe and originally broadcast on the Style Network. The show remains accessible on Apple TV for streaming. Sue is also an accomplished author, penning "Good, Better Best," a compelling Rags to Riches narrative that vividly illustrates her remarkable resilience stemming from a modest upbringing. In 1985, Sue embarked on her entrepreneurial journey by establishing the Women’s Closet Exchange in a modest 900-square foot space, where she operated as the sole employee. Fast forward to 2024, and The Vault has evolved significantly. Now spanning an impressive 7,000 square feet, the boutique employs 24 individuals and has expanded its reach through a thriving ecommerce platform.

Along the way, you will be treated to a box lunch as you are transported in an air conditioned coach. This event is an opportunity to brainstorm with your peers and make new friends as you gather ideas to adapt and apply to your own shops.
