Season 1, Episode 1 – Origin USA

Today we dive deep into Origin USA and its President Pete Roberts. Pete walks us through what it was like being at the helm of a textile shop when Covid-19 hit. We’ll discuss the specific actions and attitudes that let Origin pivot rapidly to making masks and face shields and gain some insights into how corporate culture can play a huge role in success. By the end of the episode, you’ll understand how the term ripping people’s faces off is not only positive, but could even be your words to live by.
