We sat down with Jess Hatzis from Frank Body, who explains how the company used Instagram [5:15] to launch a global coffee-based skincare brand from a DTC foundation [6:37]. Jess shares her experience of founding a business whilst still holding down a full-time job and the $20 million sales explosion in the first 18 months followed [11:10]

We take a look at how Frank Body diversified its acquisition and marketing strategies in response to changes in the use of social media, and explore their approach to retention after initial success [18:55]. Jess also reveals the toughest challenge she’s faced as a female founder and the one thing she wishes she’d known before going into business [28:25].
