Often we only see the finished product an entrepreneur puts out. But running a business affects every part of an entrepreneur’s life. Introducing: Bold 7. We’re pulling back the curtain with this series, a weekly vlog where our cofounder Doug opens up about his day to day.

The first episode gives some backstory to Doug’s neighborhood in Washington, DC and the changes it’s undergone since he moved there more than 15 years ago. Though he was located in Charlotte, North Carolina for much of the coronavirus pandemic, Doug decided to head home to check on family and close friends.

While managing relationships—and navigating the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder—Doug was hard at work tending to business. In this episode, he shares about life as a young black man building a budding upstart.
