Creating authentic, engaged, and empowered communities
In This Episode
Disciple’s CEO and Founder, Benji Vaughan, sits down for a meaty chat with absolute community legend, Erica Kuhl. Erica shares her wisdom on community and how to turn it into something of true value using strategy and clear objectives, which she discusses heavily on her podcast with Brian Oblinger. The two of them align on a shared sentiment that community is king and should be at the forefront of your business. To leave you with one thought, always question your “why”, the purpose behind wanting to build a community in the first place.
