Being Strong, FLOW & Fist Fights w/ the Whole Foods Founder – “Doing good while Doing Well”

Hi everyone! With John Mackey, Founder/ CEO of Whole Foods

With John Mackey, Founder/ CEO of Whole Foods

Hi Everyone!! This interview is a riot (and informative!).  CLICK HERE TO WATCH.  John Mackey (friend and Founder/ CEO of Whole Foods) and my friend Michael Strong (Founder/ CEO of FLOW) teamed up to create an organization that encourages “doing good and doing well”.  Basically for all of us tree huggers out there (myself included), capitalists with a heart and others who are on a mission to save the world- YOU CAN DO IT WHILE MAKING MONEY!  FLOW Idealism is all about helping and empowering social entrepreneurs to maximize financial wealth as well as internal/ social wealth while building thier ventures.

What I love about this video is Michael and I got into talking about how things REALLY work at FLOW.  Like since he is CEO, but he is of course partnered with the ultimate CEO in John Mackey- how do they resolve disagreements?!  Do they fight?  Do they yell?  please do kiss and tell!  (okay that was bad but i had to say it).  Anyways- Michael shares all along with how they do what they do at FLOW and WHY….for those of you pursuing a path of “doing good and doing well”- this is for you 🙂 Happy Thursday! xoxo IV
