Elissa Paquette from Calico

This is fun story of someone who stumbled into just the right career for herself. Elissa Paquette studied art and design and was playing around with a passion that turned into 3 retail stores and an e-commerce site. From her beginnings selling vintage on E Bay, tune in and see how Elissa has just kept growing, learning and meeting her customers needs. If you have ever wanted to open a retail location, this is a good hands-on episode for you. Just the book keeping and inventory management  aspect alone impressed me. If you wanted someone to let you know that you don’t need to know everything BEFORE you begin, this is a good episode. Learning as you go can lead to success! You will love Elissa’s down to earth approach to her business and hear our lively debate about multiple instagram accounts! You can follow Calico on Instagram at @shopcalico
