E538: If You Were to Start All Over Again, What Would You Do Differently?

Its hard enough trying to start an ecommerce business.

Being a solopreneur means you'll have to be on top of your inventory levels, your PPC Campaigns, while also writing blog articles, making Youtube videos about your product and not to mention getting UGC from influencers. 

But what does a 100+ person company look like? Better yet, what did it take to get to be able to sustain that level of overhead? 

We've invited Mike Bekham, the co-founder of Simple Modern and 9 Figure Business Owner, to the podcast to ask him the golden question. If he had to do it all over again, what would he do differently? 

We talk about how being part of a community and choosing the right niche can open up more growth opportunities than you realize, and how building a brand starts internally.
