How do you go from a good idea to a thriving and growing brand that’s making waves? Wouldn’t it be nice to get an inside look at how a brand was built from the ground up? Good news – you’ve come to the right place! On this episode of Inspired Insider, you’ll hear from entrepreneur and innovator, Josh Elizexe. In his conversation with Jeremy, Josh opens up about why he created Snow, how he’s built and expanded the brand, challenges he has faced along the way, and much more. Have pen and paper read, you don’t want to miss a minute of this powerful episode featuring Josh’s story! 

Who has helped you in your career? Did you have a family member who you could go to for business advice? Were you fortunate enough to find a mentor who could help guide you in your professional development? Josh Elizetxe is thankful to have made the right connections with the right leaders who encouraged him to pursue his entrepreneurial ambitions. While Josh can point to one or two key mentors he has been able to connect with in person – there are a ton who mentored him from afar. Don’t let your inability to get in the room with someone keep you from learning from them – watch their talks and read their books! 

When it comes to building a brand – you’ve got to think of the long game. Do you just want to build something that can turn a quick profit or do you want to build something that will go the distance? Josh could have put all his efforts into making a quick and easy brand dedicated to oral health, but he opted to take the road less travelled – a specific brand focused on premium products. Learn from Josh’s example and build the brand that you can be proud of! What can you learn from Josh’s story? 

One of the best ways you can grow a brand that can soar past your competitors is to become an expert at marketing. Seriously! If you know your audience inside and out and you know how to communicate to them – you’ll be unstoppable. Unfortunately, too many business leaders take the easy route and neglect the benefit that great marketing can have on their business. What are you waiting for? Dig deep and get to know the folks you want to serve with your product or service – if you approach them with the language they use – they’ll reward you for it! 

When you build something like a premium oral care brand – you take pride in how the business runs – Josh Elizetxe is no exception. While he could have gone through multiple rounds of external fundraising efforts with Snow – Josh decided to bootstrap the company. What does it take to build a business that is so independent and self-funded? According to Josh, it takes a compelling vision to stay on mission and headed in a specific direction. With his solid start – Josh is now able to reach out to specific investors who can help him take his business to the next level of growth.
