Tami Rose, the owner/operator of Jackson, Mississippi’s popular Romantic Adventures erotic boutique, opens up about the importance of overcoming daily challenges by relying on the valuable guidance and expertise of industry mentors.

“Being the woman at the top can feel very socially isolating,” says Rose. “The camaraderie of being on the team kind of falls apart when you have to enforce the rules or explain the economic realities that exert themselves on a business. I think it is important for women to have a network of contacts they can reach out to, and quite often, I find my vendors are invaluable as business advisors.”

She explains that since vendors interact with retail stores all over the nation, “they really have their finger on the pulse of what is happening, and they have a top-level view of what works and what doesn’t.”

Rose notes that a good mentor should have enough experience to give insightful viewpoints without telling her what to do. “I think it’s great to be able to talk to someone who has knowledge of my industry but isn’t a direct competitor. There is an added benefit to them to help you make smart decisions so you can buy more products from them as you become more successful.

“One of the greatest joys of becoming successful is overcoming obstacles and knowing that whatever storms may come, you have the internal resources to handle them. A good mentor has an eye on the weather and helps you make informed decisions but will rarely hop in and save you from bad ones.

“If you want to win the belt, you have to step in the ring, and you will be the one taking the blows,” she adds, “but a good corner man knows how to keep you motivated and has the perspective to suggest a winning strategy.”
