Episode Notes

Tony is a leadership development expert who helps purpose-driven business leaders to thrive in life so that they can connect with others and contribute to the world.

He is a former Fortune 500 executive with companies such as John Deere, Medtronic, and Buffalo Wild Wings. He has extensive experience in strategic planning, talent management, and leadership development.

Tony is a best-selling author, keynote speaker, business coach, and a podcast host.

Today he talks about the importance of finding a way to do things for the good of society. There are four main ways to do this, through his 4-S framework - Sell, Source, Staff, Share. 

By using one or more of these four areas, companies like Evrnu  and are providing ways to have a positive impact on the world.

A good point that was made is that these sort of innovations are the result of chance encounters. Most people think they don't have the ingenuity  to come up with such inventions or ideas. Tony feels it's a matter of getting out and about.  He says "miracles find you while you're in motion." It could be something as simple as an overheard conversation while you're in line at the grocery store, that leads to an introduction...but none of it happens if you're sitting on your sofa.
