The Vivian Lou Story: How One Mom Quit Her Job to Sell Insoles on HSN
5 days ago
In speaking with Shopify entrepreneurs, there are definite patterns that appear in successful stores
A common one is having a product that solves a pain or problem for people
Today’s guest sells one product that solves a literal pain and has been tremendously successful doing so
If you’ve ever worn high heels, you know there are designed for style over comfort
That’s where Vivian Lou comes in. Vivian Lou is a brand that promises to allow women to wear high heels four times longer without pain.
Joining me is Vivian Lou’s president, Abby Walker.
Abby’s entrepreneurial journey started 3 years ago after she picked up the phone and asked one simple question.
She launched her company as a hobby business (while being a full time working mom of two kids.)
Since then, her flagship product - an insole for high heels - has been featured in O! Magazine, Real Simple and USA TODAY. It’s also been featured on The View and is sold on HSN.
In May 2016, she quit her full-time job to pursue her dream and has covered her lost corporate salary (and then some) since November 2016.
In today’s episode, Abby will explain her journey and the mindset shifts that enabled her success.

I'm a huge podcast listener and Shopify store owner so I was happy when this podcast came along. Lots of interesting stories and love to hear the answer to the question posed every episode about the guests favorite app to use for their business. I do wish there were more interviews with newer shopify store owners so see how they are reaching their success. And it could just be me that's noticed this, but the host tends to interrupt the guest to tell his own opinion or story without letting the guest finish their thought - which I find annoying and amusing at same time. :)
