We recently launched a free digital marketing course – Become a Marketer-Philosopher: Create and optimize high-converting webpages (https://meclabs.com/course/). And here’s one thing I’ve noticed…even the most experienced executive makes a mental shift when taking a course – from decision maker to student. From the one dishing out the advice to someone malleable and open to expanding their knowledge base.
Marketers and entrepreneurs need to make this mindshift throughout our careers – a lesson our next guest discovered when entering the ecommerce space many years ago and again more recently while launching a startup in the NFT industry. “Always be a student,” he says.
You can hear the story behind this lesson – and many more lesson-filled stories – from Frank Weil, Founder & CEO, Myntr (https://www.myntr.io/), in our latest episode.
The team Weil manages at Mynter consists of 10 people and two agencies. And Myntr itself is an agency for Advertising Week and Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.
Some lessons from Weil that emerged in our discussion:
Find great mentors for all aspects of your life.Do not resist change.Always be a student. The best opportunity with the wrong leader is a painful uphill journey, but with the right leader/partner, a tough task is achievable. It is ok to say no! One-third of your revenue goes to expenses, one-third goes to people/payroll, and the other one-third goes to profit. Related content mentioned in this episode
