Quit What You Suck At –LovePop - Denver Scale Up Summit

Posted by Douglas A Wick on Mon, Oct 22, 2018

ScaleUp Summit 2018will know our first guest speaker at the  Denver Scale Up Summit last week, if you’re a fan of Shark.

Richard Manders, LovePop’s ScaleUp coach, introduced Love Pop CEO, Wombi Rose.  Throughout the Denver ScaleUp Summit several Gazelles Coached companies presented their testimonies on their success achieved from Verne Harnish’s ScalingUp principles and their growth through coaching.

LovePop founders Wombi Rose and John Wise became best friends at Webb Institute training to become naval architects. After school, they traveled to Vietnam where they discovered incredible hand-crafted paper cards.

Their appearance on Shark Tank in Season 7 set their business soaring on a national stage.

Wombi Rose shared they’ve recently hit $18 Million in revenue.

 

The update video from Shark Tank shares their remarkable growth.

 

Wombi Rose emphasized the help they’ve received from their ScaleUp Coach and the Scaling Up principles.  Scaling this fast wouldn’t have been possible without their Scale Up Coach.

Take-Away #1 - BHAG

LovePop - Wonder, Emotion, MeaningRose shared a graphic to illustrate the magic their product creates.  Rose believes customers buy at all stages of the triangle (see picture), but it’s most powerful when they find meaning.

Should you being ask yourself this question, “What’s the meaning your business purchase provides for your customers?”

For LovePop’s an occasion or event is something much more meaningful than just a card. Wedding invitations, birthday cards, Mother’s and Father’s day cards suddenly become more then a reminder, they are a keepsake!

LovePop’s BHAG is to create One Billion Magical Moments.  Their customer contact line is aptly named, “Happiness Line!” It’s a clear alignment with how your  BHAG should follow 3 rules:

  1. 10 years plus
  2. Ambitious, not Braggadocios
  3. Reinforce Business Fundamentals.

Take-Away #2 - Quit What You Suck At

Wombi Rose’s short presentation might well have been a preview to Great At Work Morten Hansen’s presentation two speakers later.  One of his short quotes he displayed during his presentation, “Quit What You Suck At,” ties directly to Hansen’s Seven Work Smart practices, #4: Seek roles that match your passion with a strong sense of purpose.

Wombi Rose has channeled his passion for design into a purpose, exemplified by his BHAG, to create one billion magical moments.  

 

As this video shares, a LovePop card captures much more than the traditional message of a greeting card.
