Generosity in action

Witty, smart, and thought-provoking, Brian and Erika breathe life into community topics. Each episode is relevant to any community builder. I learn something new and am challenged by each episode to do more and be more for the people I choose to serve. If you are a community builder or want to be, their podcast is a must-listen.

Loving this podcast!

I’m loving this. I started a community (somewhat accidentally) and I am so happy to find experts sharing how to do this right. There is a real art/skill to cultivating a vibrant community and community experience — it is really cool to hear Erica and Brian describe how to navigate the very challenges I have. I so appreciate their expertise (they clearly KNOW this space) and I am enjoying the light energetic delivery. They are fun to listen to and their passion is contagious!
