Recently, I feel we've all been hearing that building a community is key. Community officer/moderator/manager, whatever you call it - is already an important position in a lot of startups/organizations.
This pandemic did get us to come together (be it virtually) and might've made communities an "in" thing, however, I feel communities have been existent for a really long time [more on this in my future newsletters].
But most communities are built after a startup or brand is launched.In my recent podcast
, I spoke with Sonal Singh
, the Co-Founder of Fittr
, a community that emerged into a startup. Sonal shares her transformational journey from growing up in Canada, moving to London to work for Deloitte, joining a community in India as a customer to then becoming its co-founder.
She walks us through her thoughts on pursuing one's passions, her experience transitioning from corporate culture to startup culture, and most interestingly, the values and insights on building an efficient community.
