Welcome back to How To Build An App!

This is part two of our two part episode with Aaron Mitchell, founder of FreePlay.

In part one, Aaron shared some of his back story and what led him to create FreePlay, as well as some of the hard lessons he learned along the way.  

Just to recap a little, FreePlay is an app that allows any group fitness instructor to connect with and coach their fitness communities live, but it has a lot of other awesome features we talked about in part one.

In part two, Aaron talks about how he was able to build an awesome founding team that has persevered and pivoted through major challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Stick around to the end for three awesome pieces of advice for new founders and some great insight into how to pick the right team and why it’s so vital.
