Dimity Show Notes
Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen-Shea are co-founders of Another Mother Runner and also, are the co-authors of:
- Run Like a Mother
- Train Like a Mother
- And the forthcoming, March, 2015 title: Tails from Another Mother Runner
Dimity McDowell shares her “accidental” approach to building an incredible community around the company she co-founded with Sarah Bowen-Shea: Another Mother Runner (www.anothermotherrunner.com).
Give your customers, fans and followers the opportunity to be part of something and watch what happens to your business (er, community, or community masquerading as a business). ….
To Dimity and Sarah, it’s about that feeling of belonging to a team…. Setting goals together. Working hard together. Enjoying time together. It’s about having a commonality that makes getting through some of the rigors of being a Mom easier, but more so? It’s about enabling Moms to feel they still have an identity and can still kick-ass even while dealing with “ankle biters” (what Dimity and Sarah use to refer to young children…)
Dimity and Sarah’s passion for running is apparent in their commitment to keep running as part of their identity to their target audience. Through the rigors of becoming Moms, being wives and owning a thriving business, the bond of being on a team as athletes drives all they do.
Moms who run gravitated to what Sarah and Dimity offered in Another Mother Runner, big time! They wanted to open the team to Mother Runners and a community was born!
It makes you wonder what the commonality your fans and followers are just waiting to be bound together by….
