Trusted Board of Advisors

In the early days of Bright Orange Thread, I was a professor. I was running my business like a professor, not a business leader. I soon realized I needed to absorb more strategic business thinking to help grow Bright Orange Thread. 

So, I joined a peer advisory board. And it completely transformed my business. I regularly consult with my business peers when I need to bounce off an idea about Bright Orange Thread's business, sales, culture, and more.
