Episode Info:

As we struggle through COVID and seek also to care for our staff, show hospitality, and address the needs of our community around racial justice, we need to lean on the example of people who have excelled in those areas that we seek to improve. Dorian Bolden was a guest on Founder Friday back in August of 2018 and was one of my favorite interviews ever. He has built a Beyu Caffe to be a solid, profitable, community focused, cafe even in the midst of the economic down turn of 2008. Dorian's values drive the company to be "The ultimate community gathering space" that puts a clear emphasis on diversity, inclusion, and hospitality.

Another reason why I loved this interview was how much Dorian shares about his own journey as an owner learning the ropes or entrepreneurship and having to over come some pretty significant personal and professional challenges. 

I hope that Dorian's example and experiences help you, inspire you, and give you a focus on how you can run a great business and also help serve your community by making hospitality and diversity a part of your shops DNA.
