#1: Nate Lipton, founder of Growers House:

We chatted with with Nate, founder of Growers House ($3.1M/month). In our interview, Nate says:

E-commerce is not what it used to be. E-commerce companies now need to be community builders, and basically digital marketing agencies.

Additionally:

Having a strong community changes the conversations you have with vendors, strategic partners, and customers for the better. We have more manufacturers banging on our doors on ways to partner together because they want to be part of our community.

Further:

Everyone can launch an e-commerce store. It’s not hard. If you want to be a relevant e-commerce store, figure out what you’re going to offer that’s different from your competition, and it can’t just be price.

#5: Dr. Michele M. Morgan, founder of THE MAXBIT:

We chatted with with Dr., founder of THE MAXBIT ($15K/month). In our interview, Dr. says:

Have a clear vision and purpose. This will keep you on track and keep others off your track. Having clear vision helps you say no to opportunities that don’t advance the vision. Do what you do best and always be available to help others do the same.

Additionally:

Look around you and see who you know that know how to do what you don’t have a clue about. Use your resources wisely. Do what you do best, and leave the rest to other experts, but don’t give up control.

Further:

There will always be obstacles, but you just find ways to go over them, around them, or move them out of the way. For me, perseverance held the key.
