Teaching Startup: The Show - Episode 2.4How To Build Relationships With Investors
The final episode with WedPics cofounder Justin Miller. We squeezed a lot of relevant information out of these four episodes, covering everything from the brand of the entrepreneur to selling product to raising money to what to do when it all goes sideways.
For a first attempt with a guest, it went pretty well.
As liked and respected as Justin is, and that comes out in this episode, he's had his doubters. I was there at the beginning, when the take on him was for his looks. I was there when he raised his first round, when the take was his company was all customer acquisition and not revenue (something else he discusses in this episode).
Justin broke down a lot of walls on his way to where he is, and I love that. It shows that anyone can do this is they work hard and keep learning. And no matter who you are, you're going to have doubters.
Show them up.
