Episode Summary: 

In this week’s episode, Jeremy talks to the co-founder of Hush Blankets, Aaron Spivak. Just coming off a successful exit, Aaron could tell us a lot about developing products with lasting potential and investing in the brand’s community. But today he and Jeremy also talk about the value of building (and scaling) a good team and why that is an essential component of a brand’s good growth. There are lots of decisions to make in hiring - when to do it, whether to take on freelancers or grow a team internally, and how to use generalists and specialists well as you grow. Listen ahead for great insight into how scaling a team can go hand-in-hand with scaling your business. 


In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How Hush Blankets incorporates their goal to make all interactions feel like they are in person at scale 
  • Why interfacing with customers, whether they are unhappy or happy, is the most important thing
  • Why an unhappy customer can sometimes be more valuable to you than happy one
  • How to scale hiring as your business grows: what to outsource and what to insource
  • Aaron’s thoughts on hiring specialists vs generalists and when each is appropriate
  • What qualities companies look for when they are hiring a generalist
  • How to organize hiring principles when the labor market feels like the wild west
