Episode 23: About building what you need, with Mary Clavieres

After Mary Clavieres gave birth to her daughter via C-section, she learned that there was nowhere to buy more pairs of the postpartum mesh underwear the hospital had given her. So what did she do? She started a company called Brief Transitions. As she built that business, she learned that being a mom-entrepreneur could be very isolating. So what did she do? She started a community called the Transitions Collective. Today on the podcast, I welcome my client and friend Mary Clavieres. Mary shares her wisdom about how the most successful communities (and businesses!) arise from the needs of those who create them, and gets into the nitty gritty of how to organize a group of people effectively.
