If you’ve been to a handful of ecommerce live events, chances are you’ve met Carole Rains. She’s a regular at these functions and always has a ready smile for anyone.

Carole Rains didn’t become a solopreneur until later in life. She started her career in the pharmaceutical industry and then transitioned to becoming a chef. The years and monotonous pace led her to an interest in ecommerce. Today, she’s the proud owner of two stores, Rustic Artistry and Emu Joy.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Carole’s thoughts about getting more women in ecommerce (3:57)
  • Carole’s take on getting into ecommerce later in life (7:31)
  • How she started her first store (11:22)
  • How she got her second store (11:39)
  • How she makes her businesses work for her lifestyle (14:14)
  • Challenges she faces in running her businesses (23:00)

This episode is part of our Women’s Month celebration. We’d love to see more women in the ecommerce industry, so if you are a female business owner, head over to www.ecomcrew.com/underthehood and tell us your story. We’d love to feature you on the podcast.
