058 – Growing Her Gift Hamper Biz to Sell at $1 Million with Sarah Cross
At 24 years old Sarah successfully built and sold a million dollar business. It started from her kitchen table and grew to become a national corporate gift hamper service that was formally recognized as a finalist in the prestigious Australian Telstra Business Women Awards.
With the rapid expansion of Sarah’s rags to riches business, she built systems and procedures to enable its sales and marketing success. She also mastered the art of outsourcing to fulfill the demands of a highly-seasonal operation.
Following the success of her start-up business and using her hard-won wisdom and expert insights she’s now a business mindset coach. Sarah runs training workshops, coaching programs, and retreats. She helps women transform their own enterprise and learn how to accelerate their own financially-successful rewarding business.
She helps women get crystal clear on what they are doing in their own small gift industry business – How to transform and expand using smart systems to build financially-thriving successful enterprises.
