“I wanted to be a business people wanted to shop at AND a place people wanted to work.” said Wanda Timmons, Owner of the The Perfect Pair.

Wanda shared her journey of transitioning from a successful painting business to The Pair, which to many is an experience verses a store.

She shared life & business tips to the CEO students and gave them great advice as the begin their group business and anticipate obstacles ahead.
“Do not react, think.” Wanda shared that the pandemic has made her stronger and she was faced with big decisions of how to proceed. She stated that if she would have reacted vs think through the obstacles, the outcomes may have been detrimental to her business.”

We learned so much in our visit today and enjoyed looking at all the booths and products sold at the Perfect Pair. Thank you Wanda for your time & showing us around!
