Episode 86: Beyond the Digital Agency: Aaron Douglas, A Place to Float
Aaron Douglas is a unique human being. Aaron has journeyed from attending a seminary, to marriage counselor, to digital agency founder. He's also a Jiu Jitsu enthusiast. Oh, and did I mention he launched the largest float center in central Indiana? Floating is sensory deprivation treatment. The primary reasons people float are to reduce chronic anxiety, heighten cognitive function and relieve pain. Some people float to escape the bustle of life and relax for a few hours, while others use floating as a therapy for anxiety and stress.
Floating is also used to increase creativity, attention, and retention, as well as explore thoughts and emotions in a semi-conscious or meditative state. Others float to help manage and reduce pain as a supplement or replacement for pain medication and physical therapy. We had an amazing conversation with Aaron that focused on two areas:
- What has it been like moving from a digital agency serving clients to becoming the client?
- What can marketers learn from floating?
Yes, there are some lessons to learn! We hope you enjoy our conversation with Aaron as much as we did.
