We have a new regular guest on CMO Diaries: Aidan Casey! You might recognize Aidan from an episode of our other podcast, CMO Convo, but now she's going to be joining us on a regular basis to share the latest challenges and wins in her responsibility as CMO of Paintru, and what resources and lessons have been important along the way.

For her first episode, Aidan has been prepping for one of the most important dates in most CMOs' calendars: Black Friday. As the biggest shopping day in the world, it has to be on the radar for any CMO with brands that involve retail or eCommerce. But how do you balance building excitement, prepping your suppliers, and getting people geared up for the Holidays when it's barely even Fall?

Check out the full episode and more here!
