Coach™ Trivia Quiz

Authenic Vintage Coach Crossbody Bag by Moon Revival

Every business begins with a creative mind, a idea, a great business plan and lots of determination to make it grow and become a success. It doesn't matter if that the once small business is now a multibillon dollar corporation. Success does not come overnight for the majority of businesses and the Coach™Corporation isn't any different.

With that in mind, there are plenty of shop owners on Etsy who have a dream to quit their full time jobs and work their Etsy shops instead. Some have made it, but plenty more haven't.  I believe this is a admirable dream that can be attained under the right circumstances. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to say that your multibillion dollar business began as a little Etsy online shop

Today, I thought it would be nice to test your Coach™ knowledge so I developed a multiple choice quiz. Let's see how you rate. Answers below.
