Sue Marshall owner of Accurate Service and illumiNITE athletic wear and Meg DeCubellis head of creative design at illumiNITE and a faculty member at the Rhode Island School of Design hope in the convertible for a spin. They’ll tell us what it’s like to be a woman-owned manufacturing company and what it actually takes to get something made and out into the marketplace. So, if you have a dream of creating and selling the next great handbag, shoes,  swimsuit, etc. this show is for you

In today’s show we talk about…

  • What it’s like to be a third generation U.S. based manufacturing family
  • A woman’s perspective about working in the manufacturing industry.
  • Wonder who runs the garment industry? It’s not who you think.
  • The real cost associated with manufacturing everything overseas. Hint: It has to do with humans and the environment.
  • The choice to stay in the U.S. and how they make it work
  • How they compete with the big guys who all manufacture overseas.
  • Are consumers really concerned about where their clothes come from?  How does that translate at the cash register?

We know you’ll love it, so hit play and let’s roll.
