Bill Smith had us at, “hello, may I deliver your groceries right to your home??” He’s the CEO and founder of Shipt, a membership-based grocery marketplace that delivers fresh foods and household essentials straight to people’s houses. He basically invented a service for those of who us who haaate setting foot in a grocery store (herding 3 children under 5 in a store while buying groceries for the week? Byeeeeee!). We’ll learn how Bill came up with this idea—and yes, it actually was while he himself was in a grocery store with his own small children (he just gets us!). We’ll talk to him about how this spark of an idea has grown to over 70 cities and over 20,000 personal Shipt shoppers (these are people who LOVE grocery shopping. Is that normal??). We’ll also learn that while Bill is committed to the success of his company, what gets up him up in the morning is the fact that his people are making a difference in not only the lives of busy families and stressed out moms, but in the life of an aging grandparent, the house-bound cancer patient, and others for whom grocery shopping isn’t possible. Plus, he’s giving back to the communities Shipt serves in big ways and values “the eternal significance” of helping people as part of his personal mission. And, when you hear what’s saving Bill’s life right now, you’re gonna love him even more. STAY TUNED TO THE END OF THE PODCAST FOR AN AMAZING OFFER, JUST FOR YOU, DEAR LISTENERS.
