    Tai Foster, VP, Brand Marketing at Art of Sport & Ben Taylor, Creative Director at Kamp Grizzly - Co-founders at Ren

    In the first duo guest episode ever, I'm joined by Tai Foster & Ben Taylor. Each of them have pretty recognizable names in the marketing space but they join me to talk about what they're working on together in Ren. They came together because of work but became friends because of their love of basketball & decided to come together on a project pushing the culture forward.  

    We talk about a ton on this episode with both Tai & Ben having extensive experience in brand building, I pick their brain a bit on the subject and they’re work experience.  Tai worked with Under Armour during the height of the curry brand & Ben was the first brand Director of Yeezy.  You shouldn’t miss this one.

Real!

Q finds interesting guests that provide great insight. There is a human factor to Q and his guests that make it easy to connect.

Rarity Indeed!

I've come across the show a few months back and glad I did! I was so obsessed with growth and the high of communicating, even collaborating with such influential folk I now call great friends left me wanting more. I've been labeled a ”rarity” my entire life, and the show demonstrated there are others like me doing brilliant things for the world. I've coined this as my ”kaleidoscopic” vision, or merely being strange on purpose. Clyde Edwards of Puma was an inspiring story, and anything with Brittany Krystal Hoffman’s real-talk adds a much-needed layer to being you and killing at it.
