How Women in Business are Embracing Competition
How do women in business embrace competition in the workplace? Here are Buffy Simoni’s thoughts:
“Understand your unique space in the market. The e-commerce world can be crowded. It’s vital that you have clarity on how to bring an experience that is different or better. At Paper Mart, we built our company on providing quality packaging solutions at low prices. What we do differently, and the reason our customers are so loyal, is that we also provide excellent service, which customers don’t always find online. That model of low prices and high quality service has set us apart in our industry. Finding your own magic formula is key to jumping into e-commerce successfully.” —Buffy Simoni, president of Paper Mart
