Each business is designed to fulfill a unique purpose in regenerating people, the planet, and our future. So how do we go about designing these highly specific and purposeful businesses? That's what we'll be exploring in this episode and sharing some lessons we've learned as we've designed our own business.

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...

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...
