On this week's episode of Love The Problem, we got the chance to sit down with Taylor Ryan, partner at Klint Marketing, and he shares with us his journey into growth hacking, from taking dead end jobs after his degree to even being turned down by a car rental company for not having enough experience through finding his feet in growing startup companies.
The session was raw and unfiltered, where we gave Taylor the chance to say what he really thinks about some rather poignant topics - so you should maybe expect a few explicit and colourful phrases through this episode!
