Growth is not a straight line but rather a flow state that is caught. If you want to survive as a leader, then It’s time to find that flow with today’s guest Emily Ransone!

Emily is a partner in a Direct-to-Consumer & B2B office furniture business, where she challenges conventional thinking about how to leverage the office environment as a strategic tool to achieve business objectives.
