Our team member, Rick Hubbard, found this clever video recently. (Click on the link and scroll down in the article to find the video). It was produced to spotlight the conglomeration of smaller ad agencies and what can happen to them. We liked it because it is not just ad agencies that get acquired and “changed.”
In the November 30, 2019 issue of Forbes, they had an article featuring Bigelow Tea. The article, “High Tea“, talks about this family owned business, which is actually run as a B Corporation, a For Benefit enterprise. It’s socially conscious focus is an integral part of its ‘being,’ and allowed it to become a B Corporation.
Cindi Bigelow is the second generation family member, who is grooming a third generation. Their fame is originally from the Constant Comment tea, which was developed by her grandmother, and is a secret recipe. (Kinda like Coca Cola).
They are constantly “hit on” to be bought out, which is not happening because, like this video, (click on the link and scroll down in the article to find the video) they know what would happen.
