E0044 - Life's Too Short to Wear Matching Socks


Episode description

In this episode we meet up with Adam Thompson who has taken the 'Sock Game' to a whole new level across the world. He's the owner of The Friday Sock Company which is built around the belief that every day should feel like a Friday.

Adam rocks ethically-made, purposefully mismatched socks in over 300 stores across North America and ships his socks around the world. He's one of those entrepreneurs that has found the formula for fun in business and is truly living his best life.
