Episode 3: Kickball.com’s Johnny LeHane

In 1998, Johnny LeHane was working at AOL. He and some friends were sitting around at a bar and they began lamenting the fact that kickball wasn't more popular as an adult sport. That moment launched the World Adult Kickball Association (WAKA) and Kickball.com. Over the past 18 years, Johnny has been bringing kickball to the masses. Now called ClubWAKA, they have 35 full-time employees and 200 part-timers and they've never had a central office.

Jeff Robbins talks to Johnny about building the company and managing his distributed team.
