E-Commerce Backgrounder: Michael Sherrill

E-commerce has the ability to extend the reach of a small business to the entire globe, but there are threats and risks every business owner should be aware of. I enjoy explaining how my journey provided a pathway around many industry gatekeepers, and also uniquely fit into a freelance/independent lifestyle which has been both empowering, and an important blueprint for any community feeling excluded or underserved.
