Amazon consultant and Bring Your Ideas To Life Podcast host Vicki Weinberg celebrates the 100th episode of her podcast by looking back and reviewing her first year running a product based business.


**Please remember to rate and review the podcast - it really helps others to find it.**

I can’t believe this is the 100th episode! I wasn’t sure what to share, so I asked you, in my free Facebook Group Product Creators Club. I was asked to share how my first year running a product business went, so here we are. I set up my business Tiny Chipmunk, in 2016, so I was very grateful for the blogs I wrote at the time to help me remember what I did, and the things that happened.

I share my main learnings, and things that I would do differently now. I hope that you find this useful, don’t forget everyone’s product journey is different, so my story will be different to yours. If you are through those first couple of years, and you would like to share your story on the other side, I would absolutely love to talk to you. Please do get in touch.
