EP 025: Laura Zander of Jimmy Beans Wool

Laura Zander aka "Jimmy"

Co-founder and CEO of Jimmy Beans Wool, Laura Zander came on to the N2K podcast this week!  Can you believe it?  I’m still pinching myself over here!

It was such a joy to talk to a real pro in the industry.  She’s been leading the way for 20 years and is still growing.  She started off with a local yarn shop and a coffee cart combo. (Do you think the yarn smelled of coffee?  That might be a selling point for me!)

Since then, she has ditched the coffee cart and expanded her store into a full-service website, including multiple brands, yarns, and knitting tools.  She has patented knitting tools and designs specialty bags.  She has even written books and I didn’t even get to talk to her about that!

She is a boss lady.  What I found to be so unique about Laura and probably the number one contributor to her success is her value for relationships!

You need to listen to hear more!
