Honey I Blew Up The Business
Non-Negotiable Beliefs with Olivia Sibony
October 6, 2021
Olivia Sibony was listed in the UK’s Top Ten Women Entrepreneurs in 2019 and has been described as a “trailblazing ethical investment champion”. But blazing a trail has come at a cost. Overcoming severe corporate burnout, she launched a business to change the world. Only to find that her social purpose business began to lose it’s social purpose when things got tough. What was more important: her beliefs or the business interests of her investors? This moment of truth clarified a renewed life of purpose. She is now the CEO of SeedTribe - a community for people who believe in business as a force for good. In this episode you will learn how misaligned values can literally make you sick. Why a social purpose has to be core to a business model (or it just won’t work). Why profit isn’t a dirty word when it comes to doing good. And how to create a true sense of purpose, and the value of setting boundaries. You will also get to meet Liv’s Grandfather, a self sufficient WW2 veteran who has inspired her career, and perhaps can help us all live more wisely.
