Samantha C. Smith. Sam is the founder and CEO of Vishion. In this episode, she talks about dropping out of business school to become an entrepreneur. And, she shares a simple mathematical formula to help you recover from failure. Vishion is a color search engine for design lovers. They’ve partnered with the top color companies in the world to help design professionals search by color more quickly and organize color palettes, as well as

connect brands with color-focused, design enthusiasts.

Her favorite quote is from Steve Jobs: “Believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path.”

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How she uses “Ruth Bader Ginsberg” to help her remember what RGB stands for
  • Why she views failure as a “necessary evil”
  • What her exact formula is (down the minute!) of how she bounces back from “failure” (Hint: she gives herself 10 minutes to feel bad for however many days she’ll be upset about it. Brilliant!)
  • How her “superpower” relates to the film “Wine Country” with Amy Poehler
  • Why her embarrassing story includes the phrase: “I want to leave them wet in the mouth.”
  • What her advice is for women getting into the entrepreneurial space
  • Why sometimes comparing yourself to others is actually the best thing you can do
  • What’s the one thing she’ll never “humble brag” about
