    05. Learn To Walk Before You Run: Julie Hirsch

    In a world of self-promotion, instant gratification, and social media, it’s easy to get caught up in someone else’s definition of success and rush to meet them. What we encourage you to do, is instead go your own way, and invest in building yourself up before launching out into the world.
    In this episode, we’re joined by Julie Hirsch, Co-Founder and COO of Eloments – the world’s first all natural vitamin tea. Taking inspiration from the Chinese proverb ‘Learn to Walk Before You Run’ or 一 口 吃 不 成 胖 子, we explore the importance of grasping the basic skills of business and your industry before attempting something more difficult.

Love the first Ep - excited to use these tools

Already after the first episode I’ve got heaps of tools and strategies to apply in my own business. Its particularly powerful getting insights into a business very different from mine but then being able to apply these universal strategies. Im also excited to see how I can utilise Alibaba ANZ which I didn’t really know existed in Australia.
