13:05 - “We didn’t know what we were doing. Like we didn’t know what Amazon PPC was. I’m assuming that we were running PPC [in the beginning] but I can’t honestly tell you if we were. We didn’t know about listing optimization. There was just a lot we didn’t know.” - Heather York

14:14 - “Emily specifically was like, ‘Okay, what about this new product? This is something that we is really fun and it is something that we actually like.’” - Heather York

17:00 - “There was still so much we didn’t understand but there was also so much that we learned from failing with the first product.” - Heather York

20:45 - “Like Kirsty said, ‘You don’t know that you don’t know things.’ Not until you find out about them or you make a mistake and you have to learn from it.” - Heather York

23:53 - “The biggest thing for me was [knowing] what a brand is and how to create a brand. [...] When you first start on Amazon, if you can nail down your branding, everything else kind of falls into place and it’s so much easier” - Heather York
