The ones you lose friendships over, have broken ties, and burned bridges over.

We all have certain topics that make our blood boil. In this post, I want to consider what our response should be to these. Let’s take a minute and step outside of any specific disagreement to look at disagreements in general. Let’s look at a few different options.

We’ve purposefully put together an advisory board of people whose advice we not only respect, but who have a diverse set of experiences and areas of expertise. By having all of these people speaking into what we’re doing on an ongoing basis, we’re confident that we can direct Equal Rights Institute into becoming the best that it can be.

In contrast, the members of the Board of Advisors will meet with Josh one-on-one at least once a year to discuss our vision and offer their counsel.
