Skip Howard of Spacee: Transparency, Triumph, and Taking Risks

View descriptionShare

Laura welcomes Skip Howard, Founder of Spacee, to this episode of Speaking to Influence. Skip talks about a time when he had a vision that no one, his investors, board of directors, or sales teams believed in, and what happened when he decided to execute it anyway. Tune in to find out what happened!

In this episode you will learn:

  • Why Skip uses a holistic approach to selling products, with transparency about the risks rather than focusing solely on the benefits of a product with clients.
  • How Skip overcame imposter syndrome by shifting his focus to serving his audience valuable information rather than being judged.
  • How COVID led Skip to implement a ‘burn the ships’ mentality of taking risks and failing fast, which inspired his company to be more comfortable taking calculated risks.
  • Why Skip takes his developers to stores to see their tech in action, and how it inspires more buy-in and enthusiasm for the company.
