#20 How to Scale Your eCommerce Company to 7-Figures through Authenticity & Guerrilla Marketing (Jaya Halepete Iyer, Founder of Svaha)
She scaled to 7-figures in eCommerce. There are 10’s of millions of eCommerce websites in the US but supposedly only 7% generate $1M+ ARR. Meet Jaya Halepete Iyer, the founder of Svaha. She’s a part of the 7%, which a fraction of that is owned by womxn entrepreneurs. Jaya’s story resonated so much with me because my former company that exited was in eCommerce. We often talk about how “easy” it is to start an eCommerce company and that’s correct. However, do you know how HARD it is to scale?! eCommerce is one of the most saturated markets and unless you’re able to cut through the noise, scaling is an uphill battle. Here’s what you’ll learn from Jaya: How she grew 250% in year 1 and scaled to $1M by year 3. How she targeted a specific yet mighty niche of customers who became an army of advocates that led to brand collaborations. How she scaled authenticity through guerrilla marketing and word of mouth.

QOW: How She Got Her Product into 700 Stores w/ $330k in Funding After Robbing a Bank (Queen of the Week: Chantel Calloway, Ryhme Antics)
She robbed a bank but bounced back & launched in 700 stores with $300k in funding. I first met Chantel when she applied to the Get Sh!t Done Accelerator. I was blown away by her. I’ll joke and tell her she’s like the real-life Set if Off without all of the drama but what she’s accomplished is SOOO much bigger. Chantel’s story resonated strongly with me because my grandmother spent her entire career ensuring Black Youth stayed out of prison and for those who did go, ensured they had opportunities when they got out. The Black community is so often criminalized by the media without acknowledging the systems that backs us into a corner and tries to keep us there. Chantel didn’t just rob a bank, she defied a system that was created to keep us stuck. On this Queen of the week, Chantel, a Queen in the Get Sh!t Done Tribe, will walk you through… How she moved to New York with just a prototype and $150 then launched in stores like Walmart, Target, etc. How she moved through doubt from people who defined her by her past. What doesn’t work when you are trying to gain traction. How she was able to reframe her mistake to become a thriving entrepreneur. And more..

#18 Persisting After Losing 50% of Your Revenues (Elena Valentine, Founder of Skill Scout)
How do you bounce back after losing 50% of revenues? I’ve never cried during a podcast interview until I interviewed Elena Valentine. I wanted to interview Elena on how she scaled her company to 7-figures bootstrapped. However, it was of the most meaningful conversations I’ve had about leading through a storm. Elena's storm was the pandemic stripping her company of 50% of revenues in 2020. The entrepreneurial ecosystem tends to discuss when people failed or when they succeed. But what about what it’s like to fall? To get back up? To keep going? THESE moments define GREAT leaders & companies. Here's what you'll learn from Elena, Founder of SkillScout: How external validation led to a worthiness conundrum. The raw reality of what it's like to fight for your team so they can feed their families. How she redefined success in 2020 not as growth but rather what she wanted to be remembered for as a leader. Elena successfully navigated her company through & WILL be remembered for that. What will you be remembered for as a leader?

According to Kara Smith-Brown, Founder of Lead Coverage, every day you have a: $10 hour $100 hour $1,000 hour $10,000 hour She knows this well since she scaled to 7-figures, bootstrapped, in 3 years. I often see womxn entrepreneurs not valuing their time enough. “Raises Hand” ✋ In 2020, I’m grateful that Get Sh!t Done as a company grew but I also felt the tension of growth when you’ve outgrown systems or processes that are no longer serving you and stealing your time. We started investing in new systems but TBH it drives me nuts at times as we’re building them. However, I think back to my interview with Kara as a reminder that having supportive systems promotes scale and prevents me and my team from stealing money from the business.

#16 How to Scale to $10 Million+ Bootstrapped in 5 Years (Whitney Headen, Founder of 19th & Park)
"I had a credit score of 800 and we had revenues of $2.5M and banks STILL said NO." I sat with this message with a big ass smile on my face.  I remember throwing my head back, snapping my fingers, and SHOUTING - “Yaaassss, Queen!” In my office. I had a deep sense of pride, not only as a womxn entrepreneur but a Black womxn. That pride was in knowing how many mountains Whitney and her team climbed to get where they are.  Mountains steeper than their counterparts. Period. Point. Blank.  Did you know that 1.7% of womxn entrepreneurs scale beyond $1M?  Did you know that nearly 90% of womxn entrepreneurs generate well below $100k in revenue annually?  Did you know that Black womxn entrepreneurs generate the lowest of our counterparts at $24k annually despite launching more businesses than anyone else?  Those are the multiple mountains Whitney not only climbed but conquered with her team in just 5 years.  Here's what you'll learn from Whitney, Founder of 19th & Park: How she built up $10M at a corporate job after they wouldn’t give her a raise so she took her relationships with her. How mindset around what I call “broke PTSD” needs to be nurtured when you scale. How she sustained even after banks say no EVEN when they had $2.5M in the bank and good credit And much more...

#15 Turn an Investor "No" into a "Yes" (Jihan Thompson, Founder of Swivel Beauty)
*This interview was originally recorded in 2018.  I have been rejected by TONS of investors! From my 1st business at 19 to my last company where I raised from VCs. At some point, we started putting conversion rates on the pipeline of investors from outreach to conversations to checks closed. This forced us to think logically through the No’s instead of taking it personally. However, I didn’t know to do that until years into pitching! More importantly, I wish I would have known that EVERY single investor meeting could become a Yes. The “Yes” may not be a check but there are SOOO many other invaluable things that you can gain from investor meetings that can help move your business forward. If you’re a female founder fundraising, you should be looking for your “Yes” in EVERY single investor. Learn how from Jihan Thompson, founder of Swivel Beauty: What to do before every investor meeting to get a Yes even if it’s not a check.

#14: How Startups Scale Unintended Consequences (Kate O'Neill, Founder of KO Insights)
“Purpose is the shape meaning takes in business.” This should be the motto for 2021 for ALL companies. From Facebook to Google to The Wing, the entrepreneurial ecosystem has scaled bad practices and behaviors that have hurt many people. I don’t think these founders had bad intentions. Quite the contrary. I truly believe that each of these founders had a vision for helping people that turned sour while scaling. How? We perpetuate growth for growth’s sake to saturate markets quickly. While “intentions” may be to serve more people while yielding BIG returns, many of these companies forget to put the very people they claim to serve at the center and harm them in the process. Remember when Google used the motto “Don’t do evil”? They don’t use it anymore. As we forge into 2021, I hope all companies can get clear on who they serve and the purpose of serving them. Otherwise, why should what you do matter to us? Kate O’Neill, founder of the Tech Humanist will help you answer that very question. Here’s what you’ll learn: How companies scale unintended consequences. How to be a tech humanist. The 3 things we need to understand to scale technology that creates meaning and meaningful experiences. What to do when your company f*cks up.

#13 Sexual Wellness for Womxn Founders (Ashley Cobb, Founder of Bedtanicals)
Sexual wellness will be valued at $108B. People need it but entrepreneurs run away from talking about it. When we talk about wellness in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, it’s typically about: Meditation Working out Affirmations/Visualizations When we talk about sex in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, it’s typically about: Sexual harassment from the predators we allow to galavant around the ecosystem because too many people prioritize money and power over people’s actual well being. The sex startups started by men so they can get it to work again or prevent hair loss. Sex as founders doesn’t have to be shunned nor weaponized. It’s actually important that we take back its power if it’s apart of our lives. However, it’s EXTREMELY hard to prioritize it when you’re a busy founder building a business, trying to be a good friend, parent, partner, friend, or just breathe and be human. Sex can be apart of your wellness routine and can be an asset. The good news is that you can figure out ways to make it apart of your wellness routine regardless of whether you’re single or taken.

#12 How to Bounce Back from Being Screwed Out of a $7 Million Partnership (Deborah Tuggle, Founder of Bite Me, Inc)
What would you do if you got screwed out of $7M in your business by a “partner”? Sadly, bad business partnerships happen often, especially for eager entrepreneurs who don’t know what they don’t know. However, partnerships can be the bedrock for how a company grows its reach and taps new markets. Think Versace X H&M, Nike X Apple, Taco Bell X Doritos. Deborah Tuggle went from having no business experience to never creating a business plan to 20 years later, owning and operating a cookie empire. She knows the good, bad, and ugly of partnerships, including acquiring a partner to having a “partner” try to reverse engineer her cookie recipe to push her out of $7M ARR. The most beautiful thing about Auntie Deb and how she does business is that she teaches how you can screw up, get screwed over, and still scale up. Here’s what you’ll learn: How she built a cookie empire without a business plan. How she established partnerships both good and bad. How she acquired one of her original partners.

#10 How to Build & Scale A Legacy Business (Fawn Weaver, Founder of Uncle Nearest)
“My end game is not to sell to one of the big guys. My end game is to BE one of the big guys.” The entrepreneurial ecosystem has become intoxicated with the idea of fast exits. Oftentimes, founder’s aren’t really about that life but don’t know any better because we’re stuck into what I call “the VC timezone” Our ecosystem is so so obsessed with a vehicle that can be powerful but is NOT appropriate for MOST companies. What I hear more often, is founders wanting to build a legacy. That’s exactly what Fawn Weaver, founder of Uncle Nearest has done. In just a few years, She has built the fasted growing American Whiskey brand in HISTORY and raised $60M ALLL from individuals. “I know where all of my investors want to exit and they know that at whatever point they want to exit, I want to be the one to buy them out.” Schools in session. Here’s what you’re going to learn from Fawn: How they built Uncle Nearest on 99% earned media. How they use the scale quickly model with focused intention. How they grew to 15,000 locations quickly.

#9 Founder PR: How to Build FREE Brand Awareness (Stephanie Benedetto, Founder of Queen of Raw)
Many founders have a “corporate” mindset about PR. Somewhere, someone along the way, who doesn’t know sh!t about startups or actually built one gave them a “playbook”. Unfortunately, that playbook typically involves expensive PR agencies, publicists, and a whole branding strategy that most startups can’t afford. Here’s the thing, I believe in PR. It’s a great way to build brand awareness. However, most early-stage founders cannot compare themselves to the startups plastered on New York subway stations. You have an opportunity to go grass-roots and make an impact for FREE. The Queen of Raw, Stephanie Benedetto, is probably one fo the ILLEST founders I’ve seen when it comes to racking up Free PR. She has been featured in NPR, Good Morning America, The New York Times, Vogue, WWD, ELLE, Cheddar, Parade, WCBS, United Nations, Fortune, Entrepreneur, WIRED, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, and Fast Company. Here’s what you’ll learn from Stephanie: How to leverage a strategy you probably avoid or doubted yourself in that led her to pitching in front of Ashton Kutcher, Diddy, and Gary Vaynerchuck. How to quantify impact of brand awareness when it’s not repeatable or scalable. How to choose your vehicle for getting your story out there She also gives you her phone number. YAS!

#8 How Brands Can Stand in Their Purpose (Emma Mcilroy, Founder of Wildfang)
#8 How Brands Can Stand in Their Purpose (Emma Mcilroy, Founder of Wildfang)
“If you’re an Authentic Brand, You’re gonna F*ck up.” We are 7 days away from one of the most important elections in my life so far and probably yours too. Many things led us here in 2016 but one of those things was brand. One of those brands won because of what they stood for out loud. It was bold, blatant, in your face, and rallied those who saw themselves in it. The most POWERFUL brands stand for something - even if that something is Hate. Toxic brands don’t have to win. However, many slither their way to the surface when the silence of the status quo has become the norm. Brands that exist in the future will stand for something. Meaning, your brand can NOT sit on the sidelines silent if you want to stick around. My fave brand genius, Emma Mcilroy, Founder of Wildfang built a brand that is SO powerful that customers tattoo it on themselves. Emma teaches us is that authentic brands f*ck up but it allows them to do better. Your brand means nothing if you don’t try. Here’s what you’ll learn from Emma: How to build an authentic brand integrated in every aspect of your business. Why you do NOT need big budgets to do brand. How brands will be irrelevant if they don’t stand for something. How to avoid being a Bandwagon Brand.

#7 How Founders Can Find Meaningful Mentors (Janice Omadeke. Founder of Mentor Method)
#7 How Founders Can Find Meaningful Mentors (Janice Omadeke. Founder of Mentor Method)
“He’s given me all of the cheat codes for the Old Boys Club.” The majority of my mentors as a young entrepreneur were guys in finance. I did not plan it that way but it’s exactly what I needed at the time. If you’re an OG Get Sh!t Done Queen, you’ve heard me say this before: Entrepreneurship is 1% Talent, 48% Hard Work, and 51% who you know. Periodt. “I say self made, meanin' I designed myself” - Nipsey Hussle Every successful entrepreneur I know didn't do it alone. They learned how to lean into how they were designed to be great instead of focusing on their weaknesses AND surrounded themselves with the people that filled the gaps. But finding mentors can be intimidating AF & gaining access to meaningful mentorship means stripping out of the facade. Thanks to the Queen of Mentorship, Janice Omadeke, Founder of the Mentor Method, she’s going to walk you through how to gain meaningful mentorship, regardless of what stage you’re at. And NO! It’s never too late to be mentored. Here’s what you’ll learn: How to identify the mentors you need based on your skillset gaps. Where to find em’ & get referrals. Tips for outreach when you’re in your head. How to navigate & nurture the relationship. Why you should stop bullshitting mentors. How to pay it forward.

#6 How to Be the 1st to Market & The Best - Building the Minimum Lovable Product (Judith Erwin, Founding CEO of Grasshopper Bank)
#6 How to Be the 1st to Market & The Best - Building the Minimum Lovable Product (Judith Erwin, Founding CEO of Grasshopper Bank)
“I ended up with 110 investors & $133 Million in Total.” I learned about Judith Erwin through a friend that works for her a couple of months ago. I stopped dead in my tracks when I found out that she is the founding CEO of Grasshopper Bank - the 1st FULLY digital bank in the US. WHY was I just hearing about her? The hype around millennial entrepreneurs is deafening BUT 45+ are doin' the damn thang.  #NumbersDontLieCheckTheScoreBoard Even though she raised a TON of money, the amount of $ Judith raised is not the most interesting about what she's built. I just knew y’all would click 💁‍♀️ What’s more interesting is how she approaches building her company as the 1st to market. Yes. Entrepreneurs are building the plane while it’s flying but when you are 1st to market, you’re not only building the plane while it’s flying, you're also doing it while it’s pitch black! Here is what I love and have learned about Judith and how she’s winning at being the first: How she’s built alongside her customer through what her team calls getting to the “Most Lovable Product.” How to build the best team by always recruiting —> She interviews 5 people/week when she’s not hiring. That's 4X that when she is hiring. How she raised a record $133M in core capital with 3 women + a man of color but almost lost it all in a matter of 2 hours.

#5 How to Build Your Personal Brand as a Founder (Jessica Zweig, Founder of SimplyBe)
#5 How to Build Your Personal Brand as a Founder (Jessica Zweig, Founder of SimplyBe)
“People will invest in you because they believe in the equity you’ve built in yourself.” Here’s the Get Sh!t Done brand in a nutshell - It’s Alex AF. I’m clear on why we exist, what our values are, how we live into those values and unapologetic about speaking on those things whenever I open my big mouth. I’m not trying to be something I’m not. I’ve scaled businesses and secured checks being me. You can do you too. It's actually the smartest way to scale. So where do you think founders fail at their personal brands? Trying to be a version of themselves they think is acceptable and not clearly articulating why we should care about the value they bring to the table. One of my FAVE serial entrepreneurs and personal brander Queens, Jessica Zweig, is someone I look up to when it comes to personal branding (and I’m not the only one. Check her receipts) She’s taught me that personal branding can lead to the only form of marketing that your company may ever need if you play your cards right. On this week’s episode of the Get Sh!t Done Podcast, we dive into: -How to formulate your message -How to avoid “faux authenticity” -How to identify your content buckets -Tactics for how you can build out your personal brand Subscribe & Rate Now. #getsshitdonepodcast Learn More About the Get Sh!t Done Accelerator: shegetsshitdone.com/accelerator Join Our Traction Membership Community Waitlist: https://bit.ly/3giCEkC Have feedback, a show topic you want us to cover, or just want to say hi: tribe@shegetsshitdone.com

#4 Lessons from Raising $22 Million & Failing (Shruti Shah, Founder of Move Loot)
#4 Lessons from Raising $22 Million & Failing (Shruti Shah, Founder of Move Loot)
“We raised our seed round of $2.8M in 2 1/2 weeks” Sounds sexy, right? One of the saddest things I see from some founders is an excessive focus on fundraising as their “saving grace”. Yet, they have no traction or lack a clear path forward to generate traction. Many founders are wasting their time finding investors because A. They haven't de-risked the investment through traction or B. They aren't VC-backable. Even the best founders and teams fail but they had traction where investors were willing to take the risk like Shruti Shah. -Her company was generating $30K MRR when they raised a seed of $2.8M in 2.5 weeks. -A Chinese billionaire CAME TO HER to offer $11M for Series A. -She went through YC. Did checks guarantee success?  Nope. Shruti spills the tea and more importantly her lessons from scaling and failing: -Dangers of growth for growth's sake. -Pivoting away from the original model to raise more capital that decreased revenue nearly 7X. -What led to growing a team 3X & laying off 1/2 a month later. -Why she’s creating a founder-friendly fund around alternative financing. About Shruti Shah She is an advisor, investor, consultant, and coach who works closely with early-stage startup founders as they work to scale their businesses.  She's in the process of launching a new fund that has developed a new model to fund startups. She was most recently an Entrepreneur in Residence at Silicon Valley Bank where she worked with the early-stage practice team on strategic partnerships. She was previously the co-founder and COO of Y Combinator-backed Move Loot, an online full-service marketplace for buying and selling used furniture, where she led the national expansion and general business operations. Over the course of three years, she and her co-founding team raised $22 million dollars to scale the business across the United States. Move Loot was featured in numerous publications including Forbes, TechCrunch, Bloomberg Business Week, CNN, TIME, Fortune, and more.

#3 You Good, Queen? How Female Founders Can Practice Self-Care & Vulnerability (Tiffany Yu, Founder of Diversability)
Tech is not the most important asset in your company. Physical assets are not the most important asset in your company. YOU are the most important asset in your company. PERIODT. "It's okay not to be okay sometimes" - Tiffany Yu, Founder of Diversability We run ourselves into the ground for everything and everyone else and sacrifice our well-being for what? Self-care should be as high of a priority as hitting sales goals, actually higher. There's no spreadsheet, no email, no meeting, that's more important than your well-being. If you are not functioning at your optimal, everything else around you will fall apart, including your company. Tiffany A. Yu, MSc (she/her), Founder of Diversability Inc., is one of my favorite entrepreneurs who champions self-care without the bullshit. She promotes it amongst her team, transparent and willing to call herself out with compassion when she’s not showing up for herself.
