Today, Bryan Offutt joins us on the show to talk about his incredible 16 years at Under Armour, where he played a key role in their product line development and marketing strategies, eventually rocketing Under Armour from a 5 million to a 5 billion dollar international clothing line powerhouse.

  • When your competitor wants to take you out, use that as fuel to press on.
