In this episode, Tripp eloquently shares how his occupation in business is deeply intertwined with his journey through Right Livelihood. He recognized early on that he couldn’t build a career around something he wasn’t passionate about, pivoting away from big bureaucracy towards purpose-driven business. Tripp details the competitive advantages of a purpose-driven business model that holds transparency, respect, and open communication at its core while creating value for all stakeholders.
“If you build a great business, brand, and culture focused on value creation for multiple stakeholders – one that customers want to buy from and one that employees want to work for – the economic side takes care of itself.” –Tripp Baird
