Video: How Reddit Was Born

In the most recent episode of my Foundation video series, I sat down with the founder of StyleSeat, Melody McCloskey.

Melody shares how her frustration with finding a stylist inspired her to build the platform. She also talks through the challenges of reaching an audience who isn’t in front of a computer all day, and how the web helps them grow their business and improve their client relationships.

Melody McCloskey’s advice on when it’s time to start your own thing:

I started a company because the excitement about doing it suddenly outweighed the fear. I’d been fearful for two years; I sat on the idea for two years. Then finally it was like no I really want to do this, and I don’t care if I fail.
