Work: An Indie Bookshop Owner | 159

Almost a year ago now I chatted with Annie Jones, an independent bookshop owner — she owns The Bookshelf, right in the heart of beautiful Thomasville, Georgia.

In our chat, Annie shares what it was like to start off as a bookshop owner with zero business background, and the things she had to learn on the sales floor about things like managing a team, and deciding what her community liked — and didn’t like — to read.

At the end of the day, Annie’s focus is about how to keep the lights on doing something that she confesses is more work than she ever imagined, but wouldn’t trade for the world. I know you’ll love her.
