Episode 101: Weaving the world's regenerators with Lauren Minis

Uncategorized Dec 21, 2021

In so many ways there is a strong desire for humans to connect and weave our lives into the greater tapestry of everything living. Reaching out and finding connections is a part of our nature. The more connected we become in our lives the more resilient and strong we are both individually and collectively. When we connect with neighbors, we build personal friendships and resilient communities. When we connect with nature, we energize ourselves and find our place in the cosmos. 

There is always a micro and macro perspective to consider when we observe our interconnectedness to one another. How does the interconnected network of our world's regenerators look like? What sort of pattern appears when a collective movement thinks global and acts local? Our good friend Lauren Minis has been uncovering the answers to these questions and more. You'll have to tune in to Episode 101 as we explore her story as a regenerative entrepreneur who is helping us to weave our...

Episode 100: What is the single greatest challenge of a Regenerative Entrepreneur?

Uncategorized Nov 01, 2021

How  do you define Regenerative Entrepreneurship? 

In so many ways I thought that if I could better define what regenerative entrepreneurship was I could somehow create the recipe for producing regenerative entrepreneurs package them in a bottle and ship them out to the world so that we could benefit from them. It seems silly that I ever thought this way, and although my initial thoughts were far from reality I learned so much in my observation and interaction with the regenerative entrepreneurs from all over. 

In an investigative manner, I built a market research survey and conducted market interviews with over 100 English-speaking regenerative entrepreneurs across the globe. The survey and interviews are ongoing, but I thought I'd share with you what I've learned so far in my research. Listen to Episode 100  for the full story, how I came to find the 6 core tenants of regenerative business, and what I've found to be the greatest challenge of a regenerative...

Episode 098: Teaching Regenerative Entreprneurship with Joshua Prieto and Greg Peterson

Uncategorized Aug 17, 2021

There is a first for everything and I'm excited to say that this is the first time I've been interviewed on someone else's podcast for my work at Seeds of Tao. Greg Peterson of The Urban Farm interviewed me on his podcast which the episode will go live sometime later this year. I decided to post it up a little sooner as it's a great time to share a little more about what Seeds of Tao is doing for the regenpreneur community. 

Around the same time, Greg and I did this interview, I put together a pitch deck for potential partners. I think it adds to the conversation we had during the interview so I'm going to share a recording of that pitch here as well. Please let me know what you think of the interview and the pitch.

Episode 097: Stacking Functions and Scaling Down with Eli Whipple

Uncategorized Aug 10, 2021

It's been an absolute joy getting to know Eli over the past couple of months as we've run into each other at Regenerative Pollination events, Clubhouse conversations, and Think Tank discussions. On Clubhouse we've (at least a couple of times) been in a room together with those less involved in the regenerative movement and have been able to stand as a duo for regenerative change. It's a sweet Mormon missionary feeling when you alongside a companion help others see the light of the regenerative movement. 

Not surprisingly our conversation for this interview was absolutely timely and furthers the narrative for regenerative entrepreneurs across the globe. Eli is a founder, catalyst, and inventor that is decentralizing the manufacturing industry. Basically, he's turning a massively extractive system into one that densely provides value by stacking functions and empowering small-scale producers. 

Sound interesting? Of course, it is! Come listen to Eli's story on...
