In this episode, I speak with Vy Vu about how the organization she helped launch, FitFam, went from a handful of friends working out together in a local park to hundreds of participants getting up regularly to participate in more than 50 weekly events.
Through our conversation, we focused a lot on how to build a community, and the challenge of building a business model around it where the interests of the community remain front and center.
Topics I believe are critical at this time.
