Ep 105: The brave new world of growth with Richard Chapple, co founder of The Growth Foundation

On this special simulcast episode, I sat down with Richard Chapple, co-founder of The Growth Foundation.

It’s a broad conversation where we tackle what it’s like to operate in the brave new world of growth. We cover why CRM is a gold pot waiting to be unleashed, the D2C principles that still exist today, avoiding choice paralysis, why D2C trumps omnichannel if it’s profitable, the pros and cons of geographical expansion and growth channels Rich is bullish on in 2024; Threads, Reddit and Podcasts.
