Here’s a quick preview of what we have in store for you.

Recently I got to sit down with Harley Finkelstein, Shopify’s President, to record one of our debut episodes of Resilient Retail; this interview was incredible, and Harley’s unique insight into how retailers have been navigating COVID19 was fascinating—especially around how the pandemic has pulled the year 2030 right into 2020. 


And with New York City’s Coco and Breezy, we got into a huge range of topics. Here’s where we discussed the difference between making a product and making a brand. A key lesson for any direct-to-consumer retailer.


This last clip is from when I spoke with Michelle Cordeiro Grant, owner of Lively, and is a golden piece of advice for any business owner making their way through a pandemic economy. Michelle shared the importance of playing the long game in retail. How the focus for retailers needs to not just be on acquisition, but retention instead. 


When we say that Resilient Retail is a podcast for the future of retail, we mean it—and we’re so excited to have you all along on this journey with us.

Stay resilient, friends.
