Faith, Culture, & Winning | IMPACT Q&A

What’s up podcast listeners? Two great questions today that I receive frequently. One question is, “How do you integrate your faith with your team, your business, and a secular industry in a way that is encouraging and not judgmental or threatening? Great question and I’ll discuss in depth. 

The other question I answer is “How did you build such a special culture at Fitness Quest 10?”

The secret sauce to any successful business or organization is creating a world-class culture and I share a bunch of my tips and lessons about building a great team and culture. Enjoy this fast-paced episode and as always, let me know what you think on my IG or Twitter at @ToddDurkin.

More on the episode:

First Question

“How do you create a great culture within your business? You have created such a close community and “culture” with your TD brand and Fitness Quest10. The camaraderie that such culture brings is what I would like to bring into my business. My studio offers by-appointment-only private sessions, so the opportunity for clients to engage with each other is limited. I feel like offering group classes or studio memberships is the best way to create community and culture, but it’s not my business model. Any suggestions on the best tools and techniques to create a culture at a by-appointment private training studio?”
