    012 Storm Strout: How This CrossFit Gym Owner Turned His Passion Into A Thriving Community

    012 Storm Strout: How This CrossFit Gym Owner Turned His Passion Into A Thriving Community

    Meet Storm Strout, the definition of a young successful entrepreneur. He decided 7 years ago that creating a thriving, healthy community was his passion and so CrossFit Veneration of Johnstown was born. It was not always easy especially in a small community to dedicate a gym to one particular style or method. Those that know CrossFit understand that it is not just a gym. It's not just the workouts everyone sees on TV from the top athletes in our sport either.  I say "our" because we do it too so I can totally relate to this podcast!



    It's a lifestyle.

    It's a community.



    It's like-minded people wanting to just be healthy. People come in all shapes and sizes and Storm and his staff welcomes everyone with open arms. Truth be told my kids ventured there for about a year and had a blast! I knew for a very long time we needed to interview him!



    His knowledge, passion, and compassion are evident in our interview. He's infectious and if you are from Johnstown I suggest you give him and his staff a try...it will be worth it!

Why don't you tell us, tell us a little bit about how you got started and just about the farm?

    Andy Lynd:

    Well, Lin fruit farm has been in central Ohio for just over a hundred years. We moved our family from Southern Ohio along the Ohio river in 1919 to its current location on Mo road. Just a few miles north of potass. And my great grandparents had five, had six boys, and they were farming on the, the steeps of Southern Ohio and they lost a team of horses. And my grandfather thought, uh, I don't wanna raise boys on these Hills. Also, my great-grandmother was getting letters from her sisters in Worthington, uh, describing the wonderful city life. And she was stuck in Southern Ohio with, with six sons in a husband and she kept bugging him to move. And so my great-uncle told me just a few years ago. That's why we moved. Cause mom mad about how great city life would be up near Columbus. So

    Andy Lynd:

    Well, that's a, that's not difficult to, to, to summarize. We primarily are an apple orchard and primarily sell retail. So we open our orchard to people in the fall to come pick apples and pumpkins and go through a corn maze.

    007 Salena Thrasher: How Google Put This Goat Farm On The Map

    One day, Salena went to buy chickens but came back with chickens and a goat. Unbeknownst to her, this would be the start of her business, Tristegus. She soon found out that goats cannot be by themselves. So, it wasn't long before she had a small herd of her own. And when she found herself with excess milk, she decided to put her creativity to work and start making goat milk products.



    Salena started making goat milk products like lotions, shampoos, and soaps for her family. When a local farmer's market opened, she saw an opportunity to test her products with the public. Seven years later, Tristegus is still going strong, thanks to Salena's dedication and the support of her customers.

Um, I wanted something that was going to be unique because I knew I wanted to have my domain name and, uh, wanted to try to keep everything in line there using the same name, word, whatever.

And it doesn't, uh, if, try to change my business around some, I can still use that name because it's not, you know, specific to goat smoke soap or anything like that.
