*This one’s a must read for founders*

A to-the-point read, with an excellent video by the side, this one helps you understand community building as a means of marketing. Add influencer marketing, and you’re probably going places in your market.

Fitness in a workaholic world
In our crazy work-focussed lives, we stop paying attention to our bodies - even though we know we need to get those muscles working! Read this one, giving baby steps, steps we’ve all intended to start with, but end up forgetting. This is a reminder from Athlos, and the BoldKiln team - run, cycle, swim, go, work-out!

The premise of this one - Abhishek runs marathons, Ankit is becoming a yoga freak, Garima was cycling 10kms, to the fro the office, in winters, and a couple of others, running and swimming, before and after office. As a bunch, we’re all trying to be fitter at Bold Kiln! You should start too, you’ll feel so much better, trust us on this one! :)
