Julie Bornstein of The Yes – You Have to Ask
August 17, 2020
Launching the next huge business would be a massive challenge for anyone. But high level business experience and two years of focus have kept Julie Bornstein on the path to the next level of success. Julie is the Founder of The Yes, a new shopping app built with you in mind. Your sizes. Your brands. Your style. And you’ll be seeing it everywhere. Julie joins Socialfly Co-founders Stephanie Cartin and Courtney Spritzer for a conversation about building her company and her journey to success, including why Julie hit the reset button, and went to Harvard, and why that decision has opened up an entire new valuable network; how a trip to the airport with Jeff Bezos in early days of Amazon led to a job for Julie’s husband; why asking the CEO of Starbucks for a job while at a conference returned Into a bigger career move than expected; the importance of always following up; why a dream job that took 6 months of effort to get was worth it; and, why abandoning a dream of becoming a CEO of a big brand to build a game changing shopping platform from scratch makes so much sense.
