Things We Learned Along The Way

The entrepreneur interview series featuring business owners, dreamers, do-ers, and experts from diverse industries diving into their daily routines, internal processes, keys to success, and unique perspectives.

Here at Briar Rose, we like to remind clients that there's no such thing as a 1-size-fits-all email marketing strategy. A good email program is one that actually works for your business, achieving your specific goals. One of the key aspects is listening: listening to your subscribers by analyzing current and past performance, and listening to industry trends and best practices to make sure your emails make sense in the larger context of your subscribers' inboxes.

Similarly, there isn't a 1-size-fits-all approach to building a successful business. Every organization experiences different challenges and wins; every founder is born with different talents, develops different areas of expertise, and works to overcome different weaknesses. These interviews showcase the unique perspectives, innate capabilities, hard-won skills, and other Things We Learned Along The Way.
