It takes passion (to change the world) and integrity (to walk the talk along the way). We’ll read everything from Sun Tzu’s Art of War to Paul Newman’s Shameless Exploitation in Pursuit of the Common Good—and we’ll have guest stars from Bud Sorenson of Whole Foods and Steve Demos of Silk Soy/White Wave to Russell Precious of Pharmaca and Mathew Gerson of econsciousmarket.com.
Waylon Lewis is the editor-in-chief and founder of elephant journal, elevision and elephantjournal.com.
