My guest for this episode is Ryan Berman. Ryan is the founder of Courageous: a change company that develops Courage Brands™ and trains organizations to challenge norms, think bolder and take action on courageous ideas. Working with brands like Google, General Mills, Major League Baseball, PUMA, charity: water, Subway, and Caesars Entertainment, Ryan believes courage is a competitive advantage. Berman is the founder of his own Courage Brand: Sock Problems — an altruistic sock company “socking” problems in the world, where he has worked for five years.

Sock Problems “socks” problems in the world with altruistic socks. Each pair is associated with a cause and a charity partner which we send targeted cash back (25%) on every purchase. Examples of causes are Sock Cancer, Sock Bullying, Sock Inequality and many more.
