Carol Sanford is the author of The Responsible Entrepreneur: Four Game-Changing Archetypes for Founders, Leaders and Impact Investors.
From her website:
Carol has been leading major consulting change efforts in both Fortune 500 and new-economy businesses for more than 30 years. Her client list includes long-terms relationships with Colgate Europe and Africa and DuPont Canada, US, Asia and Europe.
She also works with new-economy companies like Intel, Agilent and leaders of change such as Seventh Generation. Central to Carol's philosophy and approach is a reimagined look at what makes and organiztion truly responsible. "Its important to find out what differentiates your business and cannot be copied by competitor because they cannot be you; and then thinking about how to do business so that communities, societies, and ecology as a whole are improved. These are not separate interwoven pursuits. It's completely doable, and a conversation worth having.
And we'll have that conversation about our one competitive advantage, that none of us can copy. That's who we are as individuals - all of our strengths and values and legacies and and dreams. As Oscar Wilde said Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.
Everyone else is a commodity. Being them means you compete in commodity-hell. With the whole being greater than the sum of its parts, I wonder why corporate policies insist we leave ourselves, our best selves, at home.
We’ll talk with Carol. We’ll hear how responsible entrepreneurs mastered these archetypes, connected with buyers, changed an industry and transformed lives.
ENVISION THIS: “Enhancing the natural flow of carbons to soil will result in increased microbial diversity, improved nutrient cycles, expanded water holding capacity, greater resilience, improved ecosystem health, and a more satisfying, profitable future for farmers and ranchers”…and, as a co-benefit, sequesters carbon from the atmosphere!
In Grass, Soil, Hope, A Journey through Carbon Country our guest, Courtney White explores the multiple ways CO2, when sequestered in soil, can become our ally instead of our enemy. Here’s just some of the food for thought offers us:
“Carbon is not ‘the bad guy’—carbon is part of our essence. Its story needs to be told and heard. It is our past, present, and future. It is our story. It is the story of grass. The story of green. The color of hope.”
“Every living thing above ground—whether it’s hairy vetch, a mighty ponderosa pine, an elusive coyote, an endangered bird, a busy beaver, or an equally busy human being—depends on the vast universe of life in the soil…and at the heart of this micro world is carbon, the glue that holds the web together.”
“The Greenhorns are the new alchemists. Carbon and glomalin are the new alchemy. Food is the new gold.”
“Art, harmony, beauty, aesthetics—as perceived by us—are all signs of health in nature and ourselves…The principles that made a practice restorative and regenerative were the same ones that made it beautiful.”
“We don’t need to wait for something new under the sun to come along to restore the land and ourselves to health. It’s here.”
Join Courtney and us in exploring these hopeful observations for which Michael Pollan wrote a foreword.
WE ARE TALKING ABOUT INVESTING IN THIS NEW HIGH-TECH ECONOMY – AND THE EFFECT OF MEDIA BIAS ON THE ECONOMY. THERE ARE WAYS TO GET AROUND THAT BIAS. ONE OF THEM IS THE ISM REPORT WHICH IS THE INSTITUTE OF SUPPLY MANAGEMENT. YOU CAN FIND IT AT I-S-M DOT-W-S. THAT’S ONE OF THE TIPS WE GOT FROM MICHAEL CARR. HE IS THE EDITOR OF PEAK PROFITS REPORT DOT-COM. HE THINKS THERE WILL BE AN INVESTOR PANIC SOON – WHICH HE CALLS THE SANFORD AND SON ECONOMY – THANKS TO HOW THE MEDIA READS ECONOMIC DATA – OR BETTER YET – NOT READING ENOUGH ECONOMIC DATA.
“Yeah I think that is how the media is shaping events. People are scared. Sanford and Son Market. I am coming Elizabeth. Economic news is shifting. There is a lot of great data. ISM new order index great info on page 4 or 5. Orders are now high and about to slow down. Panic will set in. Could see a good 10-20% drop in the market here.”
AGAIN THAT INFORMATION ON THE ISM REPORT IS FREE. JUST GO TO ISM DOT-W-S AND READ. WE WILL HAVE MORE WITH MICHAEL CARR COMING UP. THAT’S INFORMED NOT INFLAMED.

SHOW NOTES: This is our COURTNEY! I AM CURIOUS™ series wherein you ask and I answer! Specifically, this is a series for questions about my personal experiences, perspectives and life lessons.
I coined the term the “Workplace Relationship Expert” by 1999 and have been using it in my professional materials since that time! The reason is that I research and write about workplace interpersonal relationships that impact organizational outcomes (between management and staff, between peers, etc.).

What happens at work is not isolated to work process and goals. It is largely impacted by the internal relationship motives people have not addressed (which results in harassment, bullying abuse, illegal employment decisions, etc.). My job is to address that reality and provide consequence and clarity of the individual choices that team members decide to make.
What led to my identification as 'The Workplace Relationship Expert'?
1) I started dealing with workplace legal issues (wrongful termination, etc.) as an attorney at my law firm (which I opened in 1998).
2) I had numerous clients that I helped with
A one on one interview with adult entertainment star Courtney Cummz. We will discuss her career, her latest projects and dish on the latest trends and news in the adult entertainment industry.
SHOW NOTES: This episode is the debut of this new series (COURTNEY! I AM CURIOUS) and the show topic is, "Aren’t You Scared Traveling All Around The World As A Woman?"
I struggle with this question as I don't think of myself as any different from anyone else. So, I don't dream in gender, or age, or nationality, or any other individual trait. I simply dream. Then, I do. To me this question is like asking me, "Aren’t You Scared Traveling All Around The World As A 63 inch (1.6 meters) tall human? I am aware of my height but it is not something that I think about in terms of stopping me from traveling. Of course, there may be some instance where I am too short to reach something (and then I ask for help from a person or for a ladder). There are certainly cultural norms that I must be aware of and respect as I travel (in the US and everywhere else). We all have to do this so I don't think that it is a unique burden for me.
1) Why do I travel?
Because I want to. I travel for work and for the pleasure of seeing my planet. This is my planet just as it is your planet. Why shouldn't we explore as much of it as we are able to (and desire to)? When I travel for work it is because I want to work and I want to learn as much as I am able to in order to provide my clients, students, business partners, investors and you with accurate information. The world is 'out there' so if I choose to stay in one location and miss out on learning about what is happening it will be my loss and a deficiency in my ability to address international business solutions.
Watching a television show about someone eating an apple is not the same as me eating an apple in real life. I need to experience real life to be able to provide real solutions in my work. I al
