    • Business

In this episode, Ethan interviews Larry Lau, a multi-faceted entrepreneur with a background ranging from digital marketing to being involved in the health and wellness sectors with MyoDetox. Larry shares his journey from being a casual runner to completing his first half marathon and how this transition sparked the inception of Run As You Are – a unique project at the intersection of running, health, and technology. Initially begun as an NFT project, Run As You Are evolved into a hybrid business model that marries health-backed assessments to personalize running gear recommendations with a strong community and e-commerce component. Strategies for engaging traditional running brands and utilizing consumer data to guide product development are also discussed, emphasizing a customer-centric approach that navigates the nuances of brand affinities versus health-led product choice.
