In the first ever SOS doubleheader, Jade Adams and Brandon Bruce darken the door of the shop (separately), to give the current state of their entrepreneurship journeys.
Brandon Bruce parlayed a law degree, a passion for disruption, and a penchant to serve - into the innovative tech product, Cirrus Insight. Now Brandon spends many of his days giving his time and resources to 501c3 non-profits and mentorship programs for Knoxville's youth.
Jade Adams took her niche passion for indoor house plants and quickly built a following that started to view her as an authority on indoor botanicals. The 100Knoxville initiative noticed Jade's growth opportunities and chose Oglewood Ave. as a member of their first cohort of Black-owned businesses to recieve mentorship and financial infusion.
Special thanks to SOS alum Chris McAdoo for the help with podcast intro.
