Ep 11 — Problem Solving at a Startup

Today I connected with Cole Cummings, director of marketing at BoardActive.

We talked about:

  • Why creativity is such a personal and subjective process, and how he views marketing from the perspective of problem solving.
  • The unique challenges of launching a startup, the inevitable failures along the way, and the biggest marketing mistake they made.
  • The importance of humility, and being able to shed your ego and move on after a failure.
  • What he learned about the importance of early feedback and little bets.
  • Why working in a culture that supports experimentation is so critical for creating innovative marketing.

And a lot more…
