In today’s episode, we chat with Dr. Regina Hampton. Dr. Hampton is the co-founder of Cherry Blossom Intimates, a boutique lingerie shop offering lingerie in a wide variety of sizes and styles as well as prosthesis for women who are breast cancer survivors. She believes that all women should have a wonderful and comfortable experience shopping for intimates and leave feeling beautiful and satisfied.

  • Why she feels it is important to be able to offer custom prosthesis in 32 different skin tones that really resembles the woman’s other breast.
  • What challenges she had opening her brick and mortar store.
  • Why she utilized a small business consultant to help open her business.
  • How she balanced being a physician full time and starting her business.
  • How the software works that they have to create custom prosthesis.
