Another brilliant interview by Alec Baldwin (@heresthething¬†–¬†@AlecBaldwin). This time with Howard Schultz of @Starbucks. A great listen for anyone who a) loves business; b) loves corporate social responsibility; c) loves coffee; or d) loves a good story (hint: he’s got a good woman).

Schultz is a Brooklyn boy whose father worked menial jobs to support the family, Schultz thought his way out would be through sport. That is, however, until he¬†broke his jaw on the football field at 18 (an injury from which Schultz is still recovering). For the next three years, he made cold calls, a job he hated but which ultimately taught him about how to sell himself. He soon¬†connected those selling chops with a small Seattle coffee roastery called Starbucks. He hoped to expand the chain to 100 (no, 75!) ¬†stores;¬†Starbucks now has 25,000 locations across the globe. Howard Schultz‚ÄĒwho has been at the helm as CEO for most of the company’s history‚ÄĒtells host Alec Baldwin¬†that at the core of that success is a desire to build the kind of socially enlightened, employee-focused business that his father was never able to work for.

Run for Congress

logo of brand new congress, the org that is fighting to force campaign finance reform by replacing the politicians that take money from lobbyists and special interests.Congress is broken.

80% of Americans agree. Its decisions are driven by a handful of wealthy individuals, it is incapable of working together to enact real change, and its members spend too much time dialing for dollars.

Let’s fix it.

We need an honest, accountable Congress, but trying to win each congressional seat one-by-one is impossible. So let’s replace Congress all at once. Our plan is to recruit and run 400+ candidates as a single, unified campaign with a single plan. By giving the people an option for big, tangible change, we plan to whip up the same enthusiasm, volunteerism, voter turnout, and grassroots donations as Bernie’s presidential campaign. Let’s elect a Brand New Congress that works for the people. Click here now.
