For minority and women supplier diversity business entrepreneurs

Up, Up & Away
As you may recall from the January/February 2015 issue, I defined a “Brandiac” as a company that’s able to master the thought process behind a service or product offering and its impact on the earth. And I’m excited to introduce this issue’s spotlight company, Ladders & Things, LLC, as a true Brandiac!

Owned by TaTanya and Lawrence Todd, Jr., Ladders & Things does not self-promote just for the sake of it; it self-promotes because of a greater vision to impact the world through its philosophy for sustainability. The company’s story is one of consistency, perseverance, and growth—and the greater community of business owners is taking note.
