On today’s show, the first two interviews are from The Running Event in Orlando, Florida.  We start with Vinu Malik who founded a company called FuelBelt. Learn what the early prototypes of his hydration system were made of, and how he grew the brand to what it is today.

We then sit down with David Meerman Scott who gave a great talk on marketing in 2016, including all the things Trump did correctly to win the popular vote. (PS This is in a marketing context, not a political one).
