This is Julia Kemp, our summer intern. She's an MBA student at Simmons College. She is also an industrial designer...in fact, Julia designed the fitness line at Target--her former employer. She's astute, engaged, bright, composed, articulate, and very special. For her first Grommet video, she only had about a half hour warning and she handled the situation like a pro. Take a look at how she did! We hope she decides startups are fun and not just crazy, and returns to us soon.
She recently made an observation about leaving a big company to work at Daily Grommet:
"I can't believe the range of things you each cover. You have to be super heroes!"
That made me feel great. It does feel insane sometimes to hop from a spreadsheet, to doing a video, to negotiating a deal, to testing a pineapple peeling tool. But I can't imagine working in a job ever again where my role is to simply improve on the performance of the person I replaced. How dull would that be?
Anyway, it's fun to see our work through Julia's very observant eyes.
