17 May 57: Maia McDonald Smith on Growing 1.6M Pinterest Followers, Rue Mag + Her New Shop Bitte
If there’s one thing I hope you walk away with from today’s show, it’s this: your one thing – that thing you pour your energy into and focus on completely and build a creative and entrepreneurial life out of? You know, that thing – well, it doesn’t have to be one single thing. In fact, as the career path of today’s show guest and Bitte co- founder Maia McDonald Smith illustrates, there is wisdom in variety – and sometimes, for some creative professionals, choosing variety may be the best path not only for the day to day, but also for the business bottom line. Along with talking multi-tasking, which Maia has mastered and then some, this episode delves into one social media savvy entrepreneur’s experience getting in early on a platform and watching her numbers soar.
This stuff is key to the show’s success, and I appreciate you helping me play the game. <3 <3 <3
