One of the best parts of this job is working with partners to develop their marketing expertise. I'm particularly excited by the progress that Maria from MetroStar has made in the past few months.
I think Maria would agree that when she started, her marketing skills were "undeveloped," but she put her head down, listened, took feedback, and kept plugging away.
Maria's been a regularly attendee at the Shark Tank Blitz, attended the bi-weekly community marketing calls, accepted unsolicited feedback (which I freely offer!), and actively sought out advice when she felt stuck.
Last week, she conducted an event with a 33% drop-off rate (normal is 50%) and very high customer feedback.
I love seeing the progress she's making.
