After a successful corporate career, Cathy McKillip followed her dreams and bought a small, struggling retail store. She applied her passion for profit and turned this struggling business around – growing it 10X in 10 years. Living her dream of owning a successful retail store, she now wants to share her expertise with other retailers to help them achieve the life of their dreams.
Cathy has worked as a senior executive in the software industry and thought that owning a retail store would be easy. What she found was that being a retail entrepreneur has unique challenges requiring critical business skills and tools to succeed. It is not easy. In fact, most small business owners lack all of the skills or might not know where to find the tools they need to make the most profit from their business. Cathy believes that small business owners work hard and deserve to have the profitable business of their dreams. She still owns Wish Upon A Quilt, an award-winning and thriving local store, and e-commerce business. Cathy wants to share her knowledge and expertise with every small business owner that wants to achieve more success in their business.
In her more than three decades of business and retail experience, Cathy has delivered profitable results and steady growth in small and large businesses. She uses her expert analytical skills and knows how to move the levers to help businesses increase profit. More profit equals more fun!
