Episode 19: The Business of Gifting with Zoë Scharf

Episode 19: The Business of Gifting with Zoë Scharf

Welcome to Gratitude Month, Boss Babes! For the month of December, we’re immersing ourselves in those grateful vibes and talking with our guests about what gratitude means to them, what they’re most grateful for, and how they stay grateful during the tough times. We’re kicking things off this week with our incredible guest, Zoë Scharf, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at Greetabl, who knows a thing or two about gratitude and the business of gifting.

If you’ve been craving a refreshingly honest look at the realities of startup entrepreneurship -- from the “Why-am-I-doing-this-again?” times to the over the top joyful times -- you’ve come to the right place. Zoë also shares with us what it’s like to run a company based on giving, why relationships are the most important thing in her business, and how she stays grateful even when gratitude feels impossible.

HERE'S A SNEAK PEEK OF THE GOODNESS…

“There’s something really amazing about giving a gift that somebody loves. That’s the best feeling ever — better than buying yourself something really nice, better than even receiving something really nice. I think the best feeling is when you give something to somebody that really resonates with them.”
— Zoë Scharf
“I used to think that if you had your dream job, you would just be 100% happy all the time, that that’s just how things work. You’re going to have natural ups + downs and ebbs + flows whatever you’re doing, whether you have an entry-level job you don’t love or you’re lucky enough to start your own thing.”
— Zoë Scharf
“When it comes to the big picture, I am very grateful. I do think I have my dream job, and I do think that I’m working on things that I care about and I love, and if I’m frustrated, it’s because I love those things. And so backing up and reminding yourself of that every now and then can be a huge part of staying grounded, staying grateful, and having perspective.”
— Zoë Scharf
“I’m grateful for the ups and downs because they make you appreciate the things that are going well.”
— Zoë Scharf
