After working for myself and alone for five years, I love that my business has taken a turn to include more people. When I hired Amy last year, it was stressful figuring out payroll and training her to do many of the things that I had done without a system that whole time. I'm not organized (at all) and that really holds me back sometimes. I'm trying, but I have a long way to go. The thing that I didn't understand at the time, was that if I had other people doing all the shipping, product listings, etc., I would not only have more time to be creative and visionary about the future of Salvage Life, but I would have the mental space to actually dream, plan and execute my ideas.
Here I am again with a new team member and I could be more excited! Meet Kristina, she's a Fashion Merchandising major at Cal State University Long Beach (my alma mater!), loves travel (especially Italy), has an extensive scarf collection from what I hear and is just all around sweet and beautiful! She has already jumped right in with two feet and is doing a great job. I look forward to working with her more and seeing where this semester takes us!
