On this episode of the Jason Cavness Experience I talk to Levi Reed - Co-Founder Eunimart, Ex-Amazon
We talk about the following and other subjects
How he became interested in tech and startups
I graduated from Wells College in upstate NY, near the dairy farm where I grew up. Both of my parents were small business owners and I had a strong interest in the vein. After working in the wine industry in NY for a couple of years and then in government, I studied for my MS in Communications at Ithaca College and started a marketing practice. That got me interested in startups and tech, and ultimately I decided to do an MBA at ESADE in Barcelona.
I was fortunate enough to land an internship with Amazon in Luxembourg and then a full-time offer after graduation, and in 2016 I moved to Seattle to start at Amazon. I was there for another 4.5 years, mostly leading product marketing teams across several businesses including Amazon Lending, Amazon Advertising, and Devices (Echo).
I also held roles with the Retail business and Amazon Launchpad. I left to join one of the largest hearing care companies globally, to build and launch a customer-facing brand. Unfortunately that didn't work out (happy to go into why, it's not sensitive) and I left to join Eunimart as a late cofounder leading marketing, sales, and GTM in the US.

I want to reiterate what I said before. I think it's really important to recognize your priorities and recognize your limits. I think it's important to think about limits. Limits are real, and they exist. But they're also typically malleable.
As you're growing as a professional, if you're thinking about going into startups. I think it's always an exciting experience to find your limits and test them and then figure out a plan to expand your capacity in certain areas if you want to.
I think it's a question of balancing reality with pragmatism with optimism. I'd say that's something that's pretty top of mind for me lately. As I'm finding, I'm testing my own limits and capacities in this new experience.
