When it comes down to it, what is a brand? Ask a hundred founders, and you might get a hundred different answers. But this week's guest has a simple, compelling answer -- Words.

And the medium through which these flow are almost always words on a page (or a screen, as it were). And if a brand is made of words, then copywriting is the most important brand building skill there is. Dave joins us to share his unique approach to marketing, gives us his top trade show tip, and describes the strategies you need to grow your business from $1M to $10M in just 12 months.

Episode 105 | Why this Gen Z Founder Dropped out of College to Talk About Menstruation, with Aunt Flow CEO & Founder Claire Coder
When Aunt Flow founder Claire Coder talks about the "hidden cost of menstruation," this is what she means: 86% of women have had their period at work and didn't have access to menstrual products. 64% of women have left work because of this reason.
