Gavin Jocius knows a thing or two about e-commerce. The former general manager of the art division at CafePress, also known as Canvas on Demand, helped that business through a $35 million acquisition, then doubled its profitability for new owner Circle Graphics. Now founder of a search fund, Jocius joined the podcast to share his thoughts on running e-commerce in a COVID-19 world, what the short- and long-term expectations are for e-commerce businesses and more.
I also take some time to share the practice that is helping me cope with the challenges and stress of working in a world that seems to be closing in around us, so stick around for that part of the show, too.
And do share this episode with someone you think might find it useful. I would be honored if you did.
