You all know my mission for this show is to help you live your dreams through career, hobby and life and that’s why I’m excited to have John Mackey on the show. He is the cofounder and CEO of Whole Foods Market and cofounder of the nonprofit Conscious Capitalism. He is the coauthor of the Conscious Capitalism book, and most recently Conscious Leadership, Elevating Humanity through Business.
You may recall in the past, that Whole Foods was acquired by Amazon for 13.7 billion dollars. But this episode isn’t about money or acquisitions. It’s about how to connect, inspire, and look within for the things that actually matter to you. It’s about how you go to work every day with purpose and conviction around a passion or a way of being of what you want to see more in the world.
Of course we re-trace John’s past, from founding Whole Foods from one of the first organic grocery stores to arrive on the scene to a Fortune 500 company with something like 500 stores, almost 90,000 team members, across 3 countries. Yet what we really get into is the pursuit of your one precious life plus:
- Leading with love
- Acting with integrity
- Finding Win Win Win solutions in every challenge
- and so much more
