"Behind every small shop there is a story worth knowing..." Ryan
I always had to go out in the market to find business. Sometimes, I would wander into a small shop at the end of a hard day in sales. Envy filled me, the business simply walked in the door for these shop owners. The best owners crafted their shops into virtual works of art, items and decor placed just right to create joy. My business mind told me that these shops were high risk, often coming and going quickly. Still, each was a special place where the proud owner mixed happily with customers wanting their goods. They were places that reflected all the owner's being, the passion showing in their eyes. I knew that win or loose, the experience would always have a special place in their lives. I knew these things, as I left for another day out in the market.
