Interview Tidbit: Linda Lightman of Linda's Stuff

On this exciting book journey we have the pleasure of interviewing nearly 100 women who are running interesting, inspiring, and innovative companies. While we of course will be including lots of details in the book and discussing the interviews over the next year, in the meantime we wanted to share a few tidbits from each amazing interview!

We round out our first day in Philadelphia by visiting Linda Lightman mastermind behind Linda's Stuff - a giant in the fashion consignment world and the #1 seller on eBay. On any one day, she has more than 40,000 items up for sale. Considering that all the merchandise was kept on site, I was more than a little worried about how long it might take to drag Amy out of there!

Aside from wide eyes and a dropped jaw, here's a few things we left with:

Amy - I was so inspired that after 7 years, Linda absolutely loves coming to work and how she really turned her passion into a business. She loves her work and it shows.

Adelaide - It is amazing how much Linda's stuff has changed over the years alongside changes in the industry, the social media and web worlds, and eBay itself. Linda talks about her business history as a constant and continual learning process. It is clear that Linda's Stuff is as successful as it is because Linda has invested in continuous improvement, by setting aggressive goals for herself, and doing what it takes on the business side to meet them.

Thank you, Linda!

- Adelaide & Amy
