    Is there anyone listening who doesn’t find traditional social media completely exhausting (at least sometimes!) when it comes to trying to grow your brand and reach? In today’s episode, we’re getting the inside scoop on the power of traditional media with the owners of Top It Off Accessories, Elizabeth and Karena, and we’re finding out what it’s like to find yourself in one of the most coveted spots in the nation: on Oprah’s Favorite Things list.

    Listen in as Elizabeth and Karena walk us through their brand story, having been in business for 20 amazing years, how they have grown during that time, how they source products, and how they manage cash flow. We also dive into what it was like to be featured on Oprah’s Favorite Things, what they learned from the experience, and—more importantly—what they learned about the power of traditional marketing methods. You'll hear their thoughts on how boutiques can leverage traditional marketing themselves, as well as why it’s more important than ever to have powerful relationships between brand and boutique.

    What if I told you that the “think rich to get rich” philosophy would only get you so far in your quest for financial freedom? My guest today is Candy Valentino, a speaker, coach, and long-time business owner. Also the author of Wealth Habits: Six Ordinary Steps to Achieve Extraordinary Financial Freedom, Candy joins the show today to break down the steps to creating life-long wealth that you can start doing today.
