Matteo De Vos of the Podcast ‘For Food’s Sake’ and the upcoming Documentary Series ‘The Original Foodies’ joins the Podcast to share key mindsets for purpose-driven entrepreneurs that he personally learned from hanging out with sustainable farmers. The age-old tradition of farming holds so much wisdom that can help purpose-driven entrepreneurs to adopt the right attitude and thinking around their work. Matteo walks us through many of those and how we can apply them.

Matteo also shares his own experience with being a social entrepreneur founder and the difficulties that can arise when we have the wrong mindsets.

What You’ll Learn in This Episode:

  • What is “Nuance” in the sustainable food space, and how can we apply this same mindset to our own entrepreneurial journeys?
  • How a balanced mindset about our “role” as an entrepreneur can help us to be healthier people and more effective business owners.
  • Using farming as an example: when to apply the concept of “the customer is always right” and when to push against that ideal (to plant your “cover crops” instead)
