The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob and Pat talk with Ginevra Kirkland, Six Apart Community Manager, about how to care for, nurture, advocate for and grow an online social community. Ginevra has been a Community Manager at Six Apart (makers of the TypePad blogging service) for over five years and is way ahead of nearly all of us on the Social Media curve.

Bob warns of a terrible temptation put in front of startup founders, and Pat explains the power and significance of a single word for startup founders: “no”.
