Episode 65: Talk About Gratitude & Gifting with Damilola Okuboyejo
In this episode, I chat with Damilola Okuboyejo about gratitude and gifting. Dami is the founder of By Dami Studios, a one-stop-shop for personalized stationery and intentional gifts. So I thought Dami would be the perfect woman to talk about gifting as a love language and a marketing strategy. Dami and I discuss the power behind a thoughtful well-timed gift as well as the truth that it’s never too late to show you care.
And is there a better day to discuss this than Thanksgiving Day 2020? Not in my book! So if you’re looking for a pick-me up during what could be an isolating holiday for some, this is the episode for you. Grab your cider, grab your wine, let’s talk it out.
