Countdown to Launch: Product Design, Fundraising, Marketing and Team Building with Danielle Rushton and Ellery Linder of Wherewithal
As a startup, there’s always that moment in time right before the product launches or the website goes up, when you have worked, and stressed and tested, and re-worked and talked to potential customers and re-worked some more, but you are ready to let your baby out into the world. It’s exciting. It's scary. And this conversation is that moment in time for Wherewithal co-CEOs Danielle Rushton and Ellery Linder.GIVEAWAY: A few episodes back, Robbie Hardy shared the unbelievable story about how she used a magic 8-ball to help her decide whether or not to sell her company. All signs pointed to yes for her, and she had a successful exit. Well, we all have major decisions to make every day, so Hutchison thought it would be fun to give away one magic 8-ball each month in a drawing. And to enter the drawing, all you need to do is write a review on Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen - and let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
