In this episode…

Every successful business owner has gone through failure. It is what helps people learn what works and what doesn't, where to make adjustments, and ultimately, how to excel in your industry. That’s right: you can’t be successful without losing a little—or sometimes, a lot. Success and failure move together; every great leader knows this.

For Lindsay Nicholas, the secret to finding what works best for her clothing brand is simple: test, test, test. She doesn't believe in playing it safe, so she runs tests on audiences, creatives, ad copy, and offers, especially now, during COVID-19.

In this episode of the Relationship Commerce Podcast, Lindsay Nicholas, Founder and Creative Director at Lindsay Nicholas New York, sits down with Dr. Jeremy Weisz about starting and growing her luxury clothing line for women. She talks about her target customers, choosing the right models and employees for her brand, and her leadership principles.
