Seriously, if you have any doubts, JUST DO IT!!!!! Honestly? I thought it was a crafting competition when I first entered and then BAM all of a sudden I was learning SO much about business and how to be an entrepreneur and it has really propelled my business forward to distances I’d never dreamed possible. DOOOOOO IT!!!!!
I encourage all small shops to enter! It's an opportunity to reflect and learn from the best of the best. Get feedback on every aspect of your business and GROW from it.
I’ve been renting my space from The Nooks for over a year now. I have to say, without @thenookstoronto I would never have been able to realize my dream of owning my own business. Renting space and setting up shop in this amazing retail location allows me to focus on making my products and network , knowing that the friendly, knowledgeable and AMAZING staff takes care of all sales and treats every customer with care and respect. AND looks after my Nook with love in between my weekly restocking visits. I just love being a part of this absolutely amazing community and can’t recommend it enough.
