This year our founder, Mindy Martell decided it was time to start sharing all the things she's learned in the last 10 years of successful business. In order to teach people more about the apparel industry and making that knowledge accessible she's launched a series of free webinars which you can find here. But she didn't stop there. She has recently opened enrollment for the CDS Academy for people who want a little more than a 30 minute webinar.
