Episode 68

Being an Earth Conscious Boss

April 19, 2016

It’s Earth Day this week, so today we wanted to show you our hippie side and talk about sustainability and our relationship with the Earth. This episode is a little different, but we think conversations about the environment and our impact on the world are important. We’re talking about what we as business owners can do to make a difference, and we’ve got an Earth Week challenge for our bosses.
