my name is chris bick...
I began driving when I was 14. My father petitioned the state of Illinois so I could get my license early and help the family business. I drove this giant van, barely able to steer, and I’d deliver wholesale grocery and beauty items to mom-n-pop shops. I’ve been immersed in small business invention ever since. From my years studying Architecture at the Univ of IL at Chicago to my career as a Display Coordinator at Urban Outfitters where I honed my skills on retail renovation and reinvention, I worked and learned a ton.
Most significant in my resume was my entry into online retail in 1998. There, I was a true pioneer. (Urban didn’t even have a website yet.) As the former owner of fredflare.com for over 15 years, I saw terrific change, yet the willingness to be flexible and combine agility with creativity led to incredible growth, professional and personal. I am confident my experience can benefit small businesses looking to grow their corner store or their corner of the internet. Call me! xo, Chris
As they say... Go Bick or Go Home!!!
MY PROMISE to you...
I'll work my azz for you! I owned my own business in NYC for 15 years. I understand the struggles of being an entrepreneur and I'm here to help you achieve all of your business dreams, at the level of involvement you feel most comfortable. I believe you have to be 100% into something or 100% willing to try. As for me, I will work 100% to strengthen the components of your business you want to improve but I will also challenge you and bring new ideas to the table, both within and outside the initial scope of the work. We’ll look at simple ways to make/save money and, if you’re willing to try, we can examine the intangibles, like the “flow” of your customer service. Great entrepreneurs nurture both the mind and the heart. That’s a true pioneer...
