Talus Ridge with Sara Hall | Business & Brews

Join Ryan Smeltz as he interviews Sara Hall of Talus Ridge. She created a way to make second chance vests and body armor more comfortable for Military and Law Enforcement.

It all began with a dream.

Within a week, she applied to a startup incubator.

Within three months, she’d applied for the patent and had her first investor.

Today, Sara leads a core team of driven change-makers all committed to making a global impact.

Sara spent 15 years in the insurance industry before going behind the scenes for the NC State Highway Patrol. Sitting behind the headset — listening to emergency callers with one ear and responding to law enforcement officers with the other. Juggling calls, prioritizing emergencies, getting the appropriate responders on the scene. On time. Every time.

Sara launched Thin Gold Line, Inc. while still working that job with its long, intense hours. As she did that, she and her husband also ran their own small business while overseeing their collective brood of five kids.

In July of 2020, Sara hung up her headset to devote a full-time effort to her startup.

And now, her startup is taking off. Fast.

Sara has had the vision all along. She leads with passion and purpose, believing no job is too small for any employee or leader. Sara demonstrates this daily while serving the team and stakeholders she loves – whether meeting with the CEO of an international tactical gear distributor, recording a podcast geared toward retired law enforcement, engaging in a community listening session to strengthen meaningful dialogue, or making sure the plants in the office have enough dirt and water to thrive.

In fact, on any given day, you’ll find Sara running Talus Ridge like a dispatcher.

Because she’s been one.
