350 — Ben Chestnut

Podcast Summary:

Millions of entrepreneurs know about Mailchimp, because Mailchimp made millionaires of entrepreneurs known. What started as an email marketing platform for small businesses has grown to a full-fledged marketing platform made for growing businesses. And, at the helm for 20 years with his Co-Founder Dan Kurzius, is Ben Chestnut.

Ben and I had a very candid conversation about his journey from Co-founder to CEO. He shares a story about a very critical moment in the company’s history. A relatively new employee bravely gave him feedback that would be hard for many of us to swallow.

Please let Ben and I know what you think about this interview. He is a rare leader who candidly shares such vulnerable information.
