Mission #109

On Board: Dustin Mathews
Mission: Entrepreneurial Transformation & Brand Response

We all know how hard it is to make potentially valuable professional connections, especially when you’re going in cold and don’t already have a link with the prospect in question. Instead of being just another voice in the crowd of people looking for a partner, stand out by mailing that person a (nice, clean, new) shoe. It’s sure to prompt questions, which you can then answer by saying you wanted to “get a foot in the door.” And just like that, you’ve opened a conversation.

Dustin Mathews shares this tidbit of creative wisdom, and many others, in our conversation today! Dustin transforms businesses and brands, and helped take a company from $1 million to $14 million when he was just out of school. Since then, he’s only grown in his remarkable ability. In addition to being the author of bestselling books, Dustin is an innovator in the arena of brand response. I’m also lucky to count this wonderful, bright man as a friend and mentor, and I can’t wait to share him with you today!
