153: "We learn more about ourselves in community with each other." Building a sustainable community one conversation at a time with Jen and Nani

Jen and Nani are excited to share the latest progress on their new platform: THENEWFILIPINA.COM! They reveal how they take advantage of the limited real-time they have to work together every week, share the impact of receiving immediate feedback from THENEWFILIPINA.COM founding members, how they use Instagram as their primary social media platform, how people can subscribe to their private podcast, a list of their upcoming events, and close out with a quote that best represents their 'come as you are' approach to their growing community.

This conversation is also available on YouTube:
