And there’s no bigger social impact than having the right celebrity rave about your products!

But how do you get your products into the hands of celebrities? 

And what is the difference between celebrity endorsements and paid influencer shoutouts?

Today’s guest is serial entrepreneur Sarah Shaw who built a multi-million dollar handbag business by becoming a pro at getting her handbags into the hands of not only celebrities but also movies such as Legally Blonde and major magazine publications. 

“... think about whether your ideal customer would buy something if they saw that person with it. That's the big linchpin really is would that make them get their wallet out?”
