  1. The first thing I take away from this interview is support. That your family got behind you is often the difference between success and a the immediate end of a great idea.

    Of course, without perfect execution and ease of use, Blurb would have gone nowhere. Eileen, you’ve clearly gathered some terrific people around you. Both in the beauty and elegance of your website and sophistication of Blurb’s proprietary software, it’s just simply a winner.

    Finally, you’re energy is inspiring. It’s a rare gift to be able to succinctly communicate a great idea and, at the same time, do the leg work to make it happen.

    Cheers to you!

  2. What an inspiration to hear you talk about founding your company based on ‘authentic need’, ‘real mission’ and ‘purpose’ –and how ‘something magical happened along the way,’ Ms. Gittins. That’s exactly what happened with the children’s book I created (The Groovy Granny) that’s now selling on I loved hearing Ms. Gittin’s thoughts on the future of bookmaking. Thanks Inspiration at Work for such an informative podcast interview.
