Hi, I’m Lance Pettit.
A commerce expert in Seattle, WA.
The road ahead is full of possibilities and there’s no need to limit ourselves to the past.
I’m always uneasy with the status quo. Almost everything can be done better or smarter. I like to tackle complex problems and arrive at simple, elegant solutions. Surrounding myself with people who make me laugh and/or inspire me (preferably both) help to keep me focused on what’s important.
Embarking on my 30th year in retail and my 20th year in ecommerce, I see my expertise as an asset — like a guide who navigates around rocks in a river continually getting faster. I’ve seen superstores come and go, the dot com boom and bust, the death and resurgence of retail and I’ve never been more bullish on the commerce opportunities ahead of us.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.– Goethe
