Navigating Financing & Startups: Mary Grothe
Navigating Forward
May 05, 2021
At 22, Mary started with a Fortune 1000 Payroll/HR company at just $13/hour in an admin role, but quickly acquired the skills and training required to advance into mid-market sales. She rapidly found success by listening to clients and always solving their needs; putting their agenda before her own. Even when Mary's sales approach was the direct inverse of corporate, she knew in her heart what was right, and did the job with integrity and grit - driving results for both herself and her clients.


In 2011, she left to become a business strategist for entrepreneurs and founded Butterfly Creative, LLC. Her vision expanded into youth entrepreneurship education and she eventually went back to the Payroll/HR company serving larger, more complex companies in 2014. Mary left in 2017 after two Top 25 and one Top 10 finish and millions more sold. She returned as CEO to her firm, Butterfly Creative LLC, rebranded as Sales BQ from 2017-2020.

Trust and Safety is a Whole Company Opportunity
Spectrum Labs
April 12, 2021
An investment in Trust & Safety is an investment in user and revenue growth and brand reputation. Not investing in Trust & Safety can lead to severe negative consequences to your community, revenue opportunities, and brand reputation.

Similar to the world of Cybersecurity, everyone who designs, builds, operates, or markets your platform has an impact on user safety and needs to feel that responsibility. Yet, not everyone can be expected to be an expert on what user safety means. So how do you spread the knowledge and make sure people have the information they need?
