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

On this episode, our cofounder Dani gets called for jury duty. Doug enters scramble mode after the unexpected news. In part, he’s thankful that he didn’t leave Bold HQ this week, but he also experiences some homesickness.

With Dani performing her civic duty, Doug has to navigate onboarding a new Grow Bold digital marketing client while also managing the ins and outs of the Bold Xchange shop—particularly packing orders.

Watch as Doug attempts to keep the high standard Bold Xchange has set to overcome negative stereotypes about small businesses and black-owned businesses specifically.
