Description

Become a Selfmade Entrepreneur with Brit Morin!



 



In this episode, we are chatting with Brit Morin, founder and CEO of Brit+CO, a popular lifestyle website. Brit grew up loving arts and crafts, but after she learned how to code in teens, she traded her love of art for a career in technology and marketing -- working with huge names in Silicon Valley like Apple and Google straight after college. At the age of 25, she decided to create her own business, Brit+Co, to center around accessible and helpful DIY how-to’s. In 10 years, she’s secured over $50M in funding and over 1.2 Billion page views! Today, she also hosts her own podcast, Teach Me Something New, is a budding investor (she invested in the booming audio-only social media app, Clubhouse), and recently launched Self-Made, an interactive start-up school to empower female entrepreneurs!



 



In this week’s episode, we talk about Brit’s passion for creativity growing up as a kid, why we tend to become less creative as we become adults, and why you should try to set aside time for creativity every single day. We’ll also dive deeper into Brit’s beginnings at Apple and Google, why Brit created Brit+Co, how she raised capital, her own investing endeavors, and her new venture to help other women become successful entrepreneurs, Self-Made.
