I’m excited to share this episode with sock aficionado, 40 under 40 SGB recipient, family dance party planner and
Wigwams director of product management, Margaret Newhard.
Introduction to the Outdoors
My Mom always had us working, digging, raking, doing something outside and she always found a way to make it fun. Just to talk about as we were doing all these things, you know, what are the unique aspects of plants and animals in nature and discovery. She is the adventurous soul in the family and my brother and I did a lot of hiking and cross country skiing and just generally were outside for much of our childhood. Summers basically was kind of one of those deals where you left the house in the morning and played outside the entire day and just found things to do outside of technology and some of the things we see today. Then we’d show up for dinner, and that would be the day.

Other Outdoor Activities
Stand Up Paddling
Recognize in many cases that you usually have to start from the bottom up. Even if you’re starting small, I think getting your foot in the door really does it. It’s amazing how interconnected our industry is. And you know, once you get into that web, it’s amazing the opportunities that really open up.
