Going fast is fun.  Just ask Ricky Bobby.  "Hair on fire" type of growth in business can be a real rush.  It can also be painful.  In this episode, I interview JD Crouse the co-founder and Queso Grande (Big Cheese) of BolderBand.com - a trendy manufacturer and retailer of activewear headbands.  
 
Bolder Band grew from the kitchen table and dusty sewing machine of JD's wife Amy to do over $3.5 million in revenue their first year.  To call that rapid growth is an extreme understatement.  Amy and JD won the 2014 Build a Business Contest from Shopify and in the process got to spend time with Gary Vaynerchuck, Tim Ferriss, Daymond John and many others.  
 
Growth can also be painful…we'll explore both the good and the bad and the lessons in both.  This is a truly inspiring interview.  Here's a quick look at what we cover:
 
- How to build a community FAST on Facebook and Instagram
- Knowing when to stick with it during disappointment
- Handling ruthless competitors
- The good and bad of hiring friends and family members
- Finding a competitive advantage and building your business around it
- Handling the benefits and being aware of the dangers of notoriety
- How to grow in the age of Amazon
- Plus more!

If you want to up your eComm game then you have to be paying attention to leading eComm brands and eComm marketers. 
 
I just got back from speaking at the 2017 Content & Commerce Summit put on by Digital Marketer.  I had the privilege of "sharing the stage" with top brands like Casper.com, Chegg.com, Racked.com, Fossil Watches and more!  
 
I got so much from the event that I wanted to share some of the most impactful takeaways with you.  So I invited my friend, and the director of content at Digital Marketer, Russ Henneberry on the show for us to each share our top 5 takeaways from the event….
 
Here's a quick look at what we cover:
- How Chegg.com not only survived, but thrived after Amazon came after them directly.  Most experts considered it was game over, but not Chegg.  
- The actual business that Casper considers themselves in and how you can learn from their content marketing.
- How you can beat Amazon at Customer-centricity.
- The BOTS are coming!  How BOTS are impacting advertisers on both Google and Amazon
- Facebook Messenger Ad tips from Ezra Firestone
- How Fossil Watches leverages the long tail and how you're likely leaving money on the table
- Plus much more!
