Get an Advisory Board
When we spoke with Cynthia Tice, Founder of Lily's Sweets; she had recently hired Jane Strode Miller to be the new CEO of the company. Jane’s background is in large CPG including Hostess – and now her mission was to grow Lily’s to that next level.
Welcome to Words 2 Grow By – where we take a look back at advice and counsel from interviews of leading CPG Founders and industry professionals who’ve appeared on the NexxtLevel Brands Podcast.
It was great to chat with both Jane and Cynthia because they could each approach a subject from different types of experiences. Jane really wanted to communicate to growing Founders that they should surround themselves with ‘Advisors’ who have experience in the CPG industry and in business in general. Agreed – they can not only give you inspiration but they can also keep you from making serious (read: expensive) mistakes!
