It’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since my last convo with Alisha and the great thing is that her artisan wedding veil business, One Blushing Bride, has grown in leaps and bounds during that time.
We recorded our conversation right when the corona virus pandemic was causing us to socially distance ourselves from each other as a society and some states had ordered mandatory shelter-in-place directives. This made it an opportune time to discuss ways to make the most and best of this situation (and potential future down times/slow periods) with respect to our businesses.
