Honest Tea: Living Somewhere in the Grey

“TEO” and co-founder of Honest Tea, Seth Goldman, talks about living in a shade of grey – businesses wouldn’t exist without its consumers. As he said, “There are current issues we deal with, and even if we solve one of those issues, we should be moving on to the next one.
