Brand, Sweat, & Tears

  • 26 : Rachel Nilsson - Rags

    21 MAY. 2024 · Rachel Nilsson is a rock star creator and the founder of Rags. A brand born out of necessity, Rachel started designing and sewing clothing for her kids when she couldn't afford to buy them expensive brands, and didn't like many of their offerings anyway. She wanted something functional and unique, fashionable but affordable. She started making them for her kids and then others wanted them so she started selling them online and each new product drop started to sell out via word of mouth, sometimes in just minutes. She went on Shark Tank and struck a deal with one of the sharks, but then decided not to take it as her brand was already growing rapidly and she could barely keep up with demand. Over time, she's added more styles and products and has learned a lot about herself, the business of e-commerce, and creating a brand that means something. She's had great mentors in her father and in fellow consumer product experts, including Jeremy Andrus the CEO of Traeger Grills. Almost every founder I've interviewed on this podcast, including Rachel, had no prior experience or knowledge or training in consumer products before they started. She's an inspiration to future consumer product founders, especially working moms who are trying to do it all. www.rags.com This episode was sponsored by Awsm (www.awsm.com) - a platform that makes it easy for brands to use small amounts of equity to reward and motivate their customers, influencers, and fans.

  • 23 : Sharon Cryan - Food Nerd

    7 ABR. 2024 · Sharon Cryan is an impressive entrepreneur and inventor. Inspired by her mom's health challenges, Sharon was motivated at a young age to eat healthy and learn about the correct foods to fuel her body. In law school and as a lawyer she prepared healthy meals for co-workers, clients, and friends, who affectionalely gave her the nickname "Food Nerd". As her nutritional savvy and the popularity of her meals grew, she decided to make the leap from lawyer to food entrepreneur. Then, as she had her first child she was even more motivated to find healthy, packable snacks she could feed her kiddo on the go - but there weren't many great options. She partnered with some brilliant food scientists and together they created a freeze-drying process that can preserve nearly 100% of the essential nutrients and vitamins in fruits and vegetables in snacks that kids love to eat. Food Nerd will be the next major hit in the healthy+convenient food space and it was amazing to hear Sharon's story. https://www.foodnerdinc.com/ This episode was sponsored by Awsm (www.awsm.com) - a platform that makes it easy for private companies to use small amounts of equity to reward and motivate their employees, advisors, partners, customers, influencers, and fans.

  • 21 : Charity Lee - Spudly Donuts

    18 MAR. 2024 · Charity Lee learned from her Grandma Ora May how to make potato-dough spudnuts when she was young. Her Grandma would make them for friends, neighbors, and sometimes even strangers - and everyone loved them. Charity started making them for family on special occassions and then for raffle events and fundraisers for her kids' sports teams. A friend, and now investor, Scott Warner, twisted her arm and almost forced her to start a business selling the donuts and Spudly was born. Businesses are buying them on a subscription model for employees, partners, and customers, and consumers are buying them online and in their store... the Spudly Donuts are a big hit. It was fun to get the origin story and talk to Charity about how it all came about, and where Spudly goes from here. https://www.spudlydonuts.com/ This episode was sponsored by Awsm (www.awsm.com) - a platform that makes it easy for private companies to use small amounts of equity to reward and motivate their employees, advisors, partners, customers, influencers, and fans.

  • Episode 18 : Alex McArthur - Purple Mattress & Kizik Shoes

    31 ENE. 2024 · This is a double-feature! I was finally able to get local marketing legend Alex McArthur, an early employee and head of all things marketing for two rocketship consumer brands - Purple Mattress and Kizik Shoes - to come into the studio and tell the growth stories behind both brands. I was recovering from a cold, but didn’t dare reschedule once I’d locked Alex down, so my voice sounds nasally but I still really enjoyed hearing Alex’s experiences and learning about these two great brands. Alex is a creative, humble, talented marketer who was in the right place at the right time (multiple times) and has surrounded himself with phenomenal teams to generate impressive growth for multiple brands in his career. This was another fun one!
