Luke was kind enough to discuss Evil Genius Beer Company’s strategies during our current Stay-at-Home status.  Luke’s business is facing uncertainty, just like everyone else, but his positivity and strategies used to keep his team focused have helped him thus far and will likely help Evil Genius to get back up to speed quickly.  Listen in to hear about Luke’s approach to dealing with COVID-19.

On this episode we discussed:
  • Best practices to market your business (from idea to being in the 95th percentile in your space –
    just like Evil Genius)
  • How to use your time at home to improve your branding
  • The strategies Evil Genius used to stay afloat during our uncertain times
  • How “bootstrapping” Evil Genius positioned the beer company to survive the uncertainties created by the COVID-19 Pandemic
  • And so much more!
