119 - Johnathan Grzybowski

Today we have an interesting topic to explore as we chat withJohnathan Grzybowski, is the Chief Marketing Officer and co-founder of Penji, an on-demand graphic design service that delivers fast turnaround, simple, and affordable. Some of you listening might have shivered a little when I said that, and some of you might have been energized... and it's that contrast that I'm hoping to explore further today... Penji has been named as “top startup to watch” according to Philadelphia Magazine and mentioned in major publications like Success Magazine, Huffington Post, Forbes, and Inc. Prior to Penji, Johnathan founded multiple marketing related startups and worked for Apple. You may notice in the audio that I call this "118." Originally this was 118, and I didn't circle back to re-record the audio saying 119, or a different MilesHerndon credit at the end. Sorry about that. We'll do better next time.
