FOOTE-NOTES Andy Foote's Podcast

Andy Foote interviews intrinsically interesting people that he met on LinkedIn.


EP 29: Elle Hill, Founder & CEO, Hill & Co.
Elle Hill's story is fascinating. She started as an assistant's assistant sweeping the floors initially in the cosmetic biz but her ambition continuously drove her to do and want more. She pivoted to jewelry and couldn't, in my estimation, have picked a tougher industry for a young woman at that time, to make her mark. By her description "patriarchal, fraternal and fragmented" the gem trade and jewelry industry was slow to innovate and based mostly on trust. She quickly succeeded, largely by sheer and raw energy, a thoughtful sales methodology and a naivety that constantly pushed her forward, "Why not me?" She didn't know what she didn't know and that was actually a plus. I'm not going to tell you Elle's whole story, because I want you to listen to the podcast. But I will just leave you with this one tidbit - Elle moved to China, with 2 toddlers, learned Mandarin, killed it in the jewelry biz over there for 10 years (listing on the AUS Stock Exchange and winning numerous industry awards)...

EP: 28 Richard van der Blom, Founder & Managing Partner of 'Just Connecting'
Richard made a big splash on LinkedIn last Summer when he published a comprehensive report on the (content distribution) algorithm which seemed to confirm what many LinkedIn authors had suspected in relation to how their posts were being assessed and shared on the platform. I know he was working on an update of that 2019 bombshell report and I was waiting for him to complete it, so he could come on the show to talk about it!  We spoke for over an hour and only got through 60% of his research. So he's agreed to come on again (next week) for part 2!
