Gold Nuggets in this Episode:

  • Time is going faster for Juliet. Is it because she’s been stuck in the house with Steve for a year during lockdown?
  • “No matter how much we know, we still fail sometimes.”
  • “There is no such thing as a failure. There are victories and there are learnings. Sometimes what become victories later resulted from our greatest learnings.”
  • “The only people who never fail are those that never do anything at all.”
  • “Always show that thing that differentiates you from other companies, and in most cases other than your product, it’s usually you.”
  • “You have something to tell people. You’re telling your story, your brand’s story, or your company’s story, and people get attached to that and they like to follow your journey.”
  • “Pinterest is not social media. It is a visual search engine. It’s the third largest search engine after Google and YouTube.”
  • “The number one mistake is not collecting people’s emails.”
  • “Email marketing is the number one thing that companies can do that brings a lot of conversion.“
  • “Whether you’re on social media, writing blog posts, email marketing, or anything that you’re doing, you always have to tell a story.”
  • “Don’t be afraid. If you want to do this so badly, go for it. You will fail. Learn from those mistakes. Stand up again. Go, pivot, create something.”
  • “Don’t worry about finding customers for your products. Find products for your customers.” - Seth Godin
