Episode 42: Dave Syvertsen and Chris Tafaro of CrossFit Bison
The Mike D and the Sure Shot Podcast
Get ready for this one. I sit down with my friends! The founders of CrossFit Bison: Dave Syvertsen and Chris Tafaro. We admittedly bro out a bit and dive into community, fatherhood, social media, and the future!
I am thrilled to introduce the second episode in our Entrepreneur Chronicles series. In this episode, I will be talking to Chris Tafaro and Dave Syversten, the owners of Crossfit Bison in Midland Park, NJ. This conversation is unique in many ways. Dave and Chris have found a way to make their partnership not only work but thrive. Their philosophy on recruitment and the value of quality employees is just one key to their success. Humility is another trait that I found common among them both - not only in the way they run the business but in how they view the importance of their members. These are just a few of the characteristics I think you will find interesting and valuable. So listen further to learn more….I hope you enjoy this conversation and take notes - these guys have the secret sauce to success.http://www.crossfitbison.com/
