My guest today, on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots podcast interview is a Marketing Fellow at HubSpot and former Head of Growth at HubSpot Labs, the somewhat-secret experimental arm of the world’s #1 Sales & Marketing platform. He teaches Advanced Digital Marketing at the Harvard Division of Continuing Education, and is the co-author of the book “How To Sell Better Than Amazon.” He also speaks across the country and around the world about startups, business and marketing. His fresh ideas on entrepreneurship, start ups, marketing, Artificial Intelligence, and eCommerce are what the world is looking for as the clammer to create our own futures and live a life of relative freedom takes hold. But where did it all start for our guest today? Was it a linear path to where he now stands on the stages of the world revealing the strategies to scale businesses like a huge company even if you are a solopreneur, or small business? And what holds people back from true success, not building a team or building the wrong team around their business? Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr. Sam Mallikarjunan Show Highlights During the show we discussed such weighty topics with Mallikarjunan such as: Sam shares how he stumbled across the last remaining Blockbuster in Alaska, who are thriving due to a focus on human interaction. How quickly can you validate your concept in the marketing. Why we should all try to work out what is the real job to be done in a business. and lastly…. Sam shares how he went through a series of ups and downs, similar to most guests on the show, which has lead him to the confidence he now shows today.
