    Dr. Paul Zak - Why People Make Decisions and Creating Impactful and Engaging Content

    As we look ahead to growing, or perhaps rebuilding businesses in this new business climate, one thing is clear: we cannot simply go back to what we did before. Smarter, more thoughtful approaches may be necessary, and gathering insights on how we best connect to the state of mind of the consumer in this moment is crucial. In that spirit, we’d like to share with you an extraordinary conversation  that offers insights into dialing into "neuroeconomics"—or why people make decisions. Dr. Paul Zak, scientist, entrepreneur and author of several books including "Trust Factor: The Science of Creating High Performance Companies.", joins Ritesh Gupta, a host of another MouthMedia Network podcast, Content Is Your Business. We think you’ll get a lot out of this, and we’re delighted to share it with you, in its entirety.

    Stephanie Benedetto of Queen of Raw - Enabling Resilient Supply Chains in the Face of Disruption

    In the new business climate, brands must seek new opportunities to save money, intelligently relocate waste, and be able to access real-time supply chain and sustainability data. Queen of Raw CEO and Co-founder Stephanie Benedetto discusses why enabling fashion brands and retailers to buy and sell unused inventory (from raw materials to finished goods) in the face of the new business realities can provide businesses a quick and easy way to secure discounted inventory based on real-time location and availability while generating revenue and offloading excess stock. She also offers thoughts on why this may be an important moment in setting a tone for the future

WDM also owns its own DTC brand Moral Code, offering premium leather footwear and accessories for men.

Stop scrolling. Listen now.

I'm tempted to keep this podcast to myself because it would give me an incredible competitive edge but I can't do it. Absolutely eye-opening, insightful and entertaining for anyone involved or interested in the fashion business from startup to global megabrand from online to retail. But this podcast is so much more than all that. I highly recommend this for any business professional. I find their guests and the host's knowledge invaluable. This is one of those times I suggest not talking, just sit back, listen to the guests and learn, a lot.
