Conference Highlights

Saturday Morning: Keynote Speaker - Jennifer Johnson
Take a Stand for What Matters  

Do you ever wonder why you are not attracting the right customers or consignors? Or perhaps you wonder why you never seem to connect with the right people in your life? Core values are guiding principles that guide your business, your employees, customers, and you personally as an entrepreneur. Core values will help you create a scalable organization and culture within your business in which your employees are empowered to make good decisions for the company. Core values are the backbone of your business. Jennifer will guide you through the journey on understanding the importance of core values, determining your core values, and ultimately implementing them in your business.

Jennifer Johnson and her husband Brad created True Fashionistas in Naples FL back in 2011. After having moved to Naples from Minnesota Jennifer saw the need for something that was a childhood dream! A resale store that melded high end with mid-market items from clothing and accessories for the family to furniture and home décor all in one store, essentially a lifestyle resale store.  With experience in retail management, banking, wedding, and event planning. Jennifer had a successful wedding and event planning business and bridal shop in Minnesota, she was also a professional model, actress, and TV host. She took everything she knew and created True Fashionistas.

Monday Morning: Closing Session
Your Unlimited Ideas

After being part of such an energy filled atmosphere, you leave Conference with pages and pages of notes.  They are filled with ideas gathered from workshops, networking and shared conversations. How are you going to use what you learned?  As we close Resale . . . No Limits, Conference 2023, it’s time to: Prioritize, Plan & Implement! Prioritize which goals you wish to achieve from your chosen takeaways—and in what order. Create a Plan to challenge yourself to apply all that knowledge.

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. Tour the stores from entrance to exit, including back rooms...something we resalers are always curious about. As an added advantage, you have an opportunity to shop and pick up some fine buys for yourself and your stores.
