Have you ever wondered what could happen if you just followed your passion? In this interview with Kelly Gunn, owner of Part-Time Pickers and host of the Crazy Good Vintage Podcast, she shares how she changed careers at age 54, followed her passion, and created a job she loves.
In her early career, Kelly was a retail goddess. She was really a name to be known. She worked with A-list brands and was incredibly successful. All of this success drove her desire to start her own business in the retail world. But after several ups and downs, she still ended up working for someone else. Except for this time she was working with lower-end B and C-list brands. She felt stuck, anxious, and miserable where she was. When you’re feeling this way, this affects not only your career, but it spills into your personal life too.
Enough was enough, it was time to follow her passion. On the side, Kelly had been reselling vintage finds as a hobby. This was something she loved, so why not go for it? Kelly turned her social media page, Part-Time Pickers, into a sensation. With over 75,000 followers between Facebook and Instagram, she has a huge base of vintage buyers. She has created something really amazing, her engagement is huge and her buyers truly feel like they won when they score one of Kelly’s finds.
Kelly is on track to make more this year than she has in her entire career and she’s doing something she loves and spending more time with her family. She is a true testament to the reason to never give up. Kelly reminds us that no matter where you are in life, no matter your age, how low on the bottom you are feeling…you are in control of your destiny. She promises when you build a business you’re excited about, no one cares how old you are.
Now, as this episode airs, Kelly is debuting her brand new podcast all about her vintage passion. Crazy Good Vintage is her new show with a focus on the story behind vintage items and even other successful vintage re-sellers. This isn’t the last you’ll hear from Kelly Gunn for sure. Between Part-Time Pickers, Crazy Good Vintage, and a book in the works, her passion is on fire.
