The energy, momentum, and agility you experience in Dodge’s professional story is also clear in his personal brand. If you follow him on Instagram, you experience his daily, storied adventures in food, fun, dance, music, and fitness. He’s funny, real, bold; he’s also the biggest fan of Charlotte freshest brands, businesses, people, and events. It’s an athletic approach professional and personally.
So, what’s the connection for him between being an athlete and joining a young start-up?
“The extra work required,” he admits. “It’s all that work – the real stuff, not the glorified stuff – that you do when no one else is looking that makes an athlete better and will make this business better.”
If his constant, buzzing energy and approach is about anything though, it’s about the success that emerges from pushing himself to be better every damn day.
“We get set in our ways and our daily routines, and we get into a new role, and we think, ‘Well, I’m here now; I’m just going to exist’ – and that’s just not true,” he shares. “Everyone can get better all the time.”
I’d be remiss if I didn’t talk about Dodge’s dance moves he captures daily in his bathroom mirror.
So, seriously – why the dancing?
“I’ve been dancing in the bathroom mirror for years,” he admits, candidly. “It’s just now IG stories lets me share it with more people – and, hopefully, make more peoples’ days.”
