Episode #55: Employee Owners – Create Wealth and Drive Value!! The Conscious Capitalists

A great conversation this week about creating ‘ownership’ mentality and rewards in a company. Hear about the millionaires and the hundreds who realized 6-figure payouts in the sale of Cliff Bar to Mondelez this year! Employee Ownership Stock Plans (ESOPs) can create great value for the people who create the value in the company! It’s also a great way for owners to have a tax advantaged exit event to secure their own wealth, AND their legacy! A win-win for owners and workers- an important element of the future of Conscious Enterprises! ** If you enjoy this podcast, would you consider leaving a review on Apple Podcasts/iTunes?
