Skimm'd from The Couch - June 26, 2019 - 32:34

Tina Sharkey is the powerhouse behind Brandless, the direct-to-consumer company that’s all about community. But before she started Brandless with her cofounder, she spent her career building communities online for major companies like AOL and Johnson & Johnson. Tina’s also been on the investing side and has helped out in tons of startups … including ours. Thanks, Tina. On the Couch, she talks to us about how her family taught her hustle (3:51), how she thinks about mentorship (10:18), and why she decided to step down as CEO in March (25:00). PS: Our book – "How To Skimm Your Life" – is finally out. Get it here: https://theskimm.com/book

About The Show

theSkimm's co-founders and co-CEOs, Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg, started their company from a couch.

It’s an inside look at what it’s really like on the road to success. No BS, no sugarcoating.
