charlie (dot) community 🍜

Hey there 👋🏻 Welcome to my personal site & blog.

About me

I’m Charlie Ward — community builder, UX researcher & product consultant. I help communities/products get to market-fit, and solo founders to ramen profitable.

After 6 years growing a London creative agency to $10m+ annual revenue (joining as the first hire), I’ve been experimenting with applying those lessons to the worlds of community building, tech & entrepreneurship.

Check out my blog & projects below, or email charlie@weekendclub.co to get in touch.

Yes, this is me. I like wearing baseball caps.
