 The Sugatan Effect podcast – the podcast where eCommerce marketers, advertisers & entrepreneurs meet and share their knowledge. 

     In spirit of International Women’s Day, we have two lovely ladies on the podcast. This time Kris is hosting the podcast, guest starring fellow team member, Erika.

     Erika’s story with Sugatan agency starts when she was working a full-time job as a project manager at a science lab, when she applied as a personal assistant for Kris. She was hustling at these two jobs for half a year. During that time, Erika showed how smart and talented she is and proved that she’s not only a great performer but also an amazing executor.

    After working together for some time, Kris realized the importance of Erika as a team member, resulting in her promotion to COO of Sugatan. Now, Kris thinks that everyone needs an “Erika” in their life. Even the “Mambo No. 5” song has it in its’ lyrics: “A little bit of Erika by my side”.
