Ep 1.Bad for Business: Why not me, why not now? Ft. Alder Apparel

Our first episode features our $25k funding recipients, Mikayla Wujec & Naomi Blackman of Alder Apparel, an outdoor recreation apparel brand shaking up the performance-driven, elitist industry with inclusive sizing, ethical sourcing and accesible designs.


In 2020, we learned a lot (that's an understatement), with a particularly interesting lesson coming from our community. 

We learned that nearly every single one of our members, mentors and funders have a story about being turned away, rejected or asked to change a foundational part of their values, appearance, speech...etc. to fit a restrictive and outdated idea of what a successful business leader is.

We thought that was ridiculous.

So much so, that we started referring to these reasons as the 'Bad for Business' factor. A term that we openly celebrate as the defining character traits that we know will make our founders successful, impactful, and purposeful leaders.

'Bad for Business' has since become a guiding principle for how we operate our business and community, and now... PODCAST featuring your host, multi-million dollar business owner, and the most extraordinarily 'baddest for business' woman we've ever met, Vivian Kaye.
