"The most exciting new podcast in the startup world.” - Eric Ries, Founder, and NYTimes bestselling author
Today's episode is with Taryn Toomey, one of my favorite founders in the world, and though I am an investor in her company (called The Class), that isn’t why she’s one of my favorites…
Her company is a cult-craze that started in New York City and is now growing internationally. And though it started as a “physical experience” (not going to call it a workout class) in-person in NYC, those who would like to join The Class digitally now have the ability to actually participate around the globe instead of needing to be there in-person. So... now anyone can actually discover what it’s all about.
We talk about her company, the genesis (the real version of the story), and also about “grieving well”... a phrase I'd never really heard of before or considered.
We talk about the principles behind The Class, the conversations she had in life right before it began, and a whole lot more.
I'm really excited for you all, to listen to this episode with Taryn. Enjoy.
