The thought of writing blog posts has always lingered in the back of my mind and scared me just a little bit. I'm not the best writer in the world, but there is something about putting words on paper or on a blog that feels like a little break from the madness of the world around us.
I haven't quite decided what this post is going to be all about or what kinds of posts this blog will always entail, but here's to starting, right?!
I guess I'll start off by introducing myself - I'm Cassidy, the owner, buyer, CSR, shipper, receiver, social media manager, accountant, web designer, photographer + model for all things Simply Lynn's. I haven't ever really had much formal training as far as running an online business goes, but I grew up in the retail world with my mom and grandma owning a kitchen store in McPherson, KS. I opened Simply Lynn's in June of 2018 with the idea of helping women of many ages find clothing pieces that made them feel excited and comfortable in the outfit's they are wearing on a day to day basis. I ran this little business between McPherson and Manhattan, KS while finishing my last semester of college at Kansas State University. It was one of the toughest and busiest semesters of my life, but man did I learn a lot.
I graduated in December with a Business Administration degree and at the end of January packed up my things and made a move to Williston, ND to live with my boyfriend, Bryer, and our dog, Dog. (Yes, her name is Dog.... she was a rescue and we took to long to decide on a name, so Dog just stuck...) I am working full time at a high-end kitchen store just like my moms, so you could say that I feel just at home here and I can't wait to see where life takes Bryer, Dog, and myself.
I'm letting you in on a little secret/dream of my own - I would love to one day be able to open up a brick and mortar store for Simply Lynn's and fuel my entrepreneurial drive!!
