Melanie Johnson and Jenn Foster review tips from expert John Mackey, during SellerCon 2019, about growing a successful business and aligning your values and passions. Let's take a deeper look into business and capitalism.

John Mackey, co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market, has led the natural and organic grocer to a $13 billion Fortune 500 company. With more than 370 stores and 80,000 Team Members in three countries, the company has been named by Fortune magazine as a “Best Company to Work For” for 16 consecutive years and the Number One Most Admired Food and Drug Store Company in the World in 2012.

What You'll Learn in this Episode:

  • Even the founder of Whole Foods went ups and downs, to a point where he thought he would lose his whole business. So, never give up even if things seem bad!
  • You don't have to reinvent the wheel. When you're speaking on stage, it should be the content from your book, it could even just be the exact layout of your book with the different points, or the first three chapters or whatever it is to get it across. Use your book as a call to action at the end of your talk!
  • Pick the product or the platform that you're the most passionate about and that you get the biggest return on investment for and that's what you need to be writing about.
  • Everyone should get value through the whole process and grow and feel good about and feel appreciated. Look at your business, and everyone that you touch should be able to feel your culture and get value from it.
  • Because of capitalism, we are ending poverty on Earth.
  • Come up with your core values, and the societal mission for your company. So, what are the core values? What is your mission for society?  Then, that needs to spread out to everything that you do.
