59: Urban Air Market’s Danielle Cohen Left Banking to Build an Outdoor Street Fair Phenomenon


Events, man. If there’s anything that sounds easy, but isn’t, well, it’s throwing your own event – or participating in one to build your brand. The thing is, in today’s digital world, getting face time is one of the best things you can do – not only for your business bottom line, but also just for yourself. After all, human connection is everything and then some. With many of the year’s most important events up ahead, I’m thrilled to have Urban Air Market’s Danielle Cohen on the show this week. The woman behind the outdoor sustainable shopping event that draws hundreds of vendors and thousands of shoppers out in cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles and Portland, Danielle is here not only to inspire with her personal story, but also to offer up some advice for FEST entrepreneurs and brands who want to get the most out of the next events on their calendars.
