In this episode of the Gamechangers podcast, I’m talking to Gay Lam, founder of Seltzer Goods, a stationery and gift brand known for their witty and humorous products which include greeting cards, tote bags, enamel pins, mugs, magnets, tea towels, the list goes on. Their product is carried in over 1,000 stores so chances are pretty good you’ve seen their stuff in person. Gay and I chat about a lot of great stuff but we particularly focus in on how to build a team and especially how to build the right team. We talk about how to grow from a one person company to a fully-fledged business and the importance of preparing your brand for scalability. Gay also makes her pitch that everyone should hire a product manager as soon as humanly possible. Plus, you’re not gonna want to miss her extensive list of best business books. I hope you enjoy!
