I am *so* excited to be speaking at the Arizona Soapmaker’s Conference this year. What a huge honor! I’m going to talk a bit about Bramble Berry’s history and helpful business lessons that I’ve learned from teachers and mentors along the way. Some of these lessons include things like my friend Bob Pritchett recommends (“Fire Someone Today”) and Verne Harnish (“Figure out your Values before you do anything else”) have taught me. Some anecdotes are sad little lessons that I’ve learned along the way through my own many many mistakes (“Don’t rehire people you’ve fired.”)
In addition to my talk, I think I’ll be delivering a bunch of Bramble Berry orders to the gathering so that should be a bit of an organizational nightmare as well as rewarding. I can’t wait to see customer’s reactions as they try our latest fun creations.
