    The phrase ‘purpose driven business’ can all too often be thrown around as a marketing strategy, however, Saddleback Leather was born out of purpose. It is a brand with a presence, a personality, good people and a passion for outstanding quality. 

    This episode of Disruptive CEO Nation enjoys a conversation with company founder Dave Munson. He tells of the unlikely journey of how an appreciation for a well-made bag led to years of figuring out how to make it work, selling products out of his truck, selling on eBay, and ultimately building a robust ecommerce platform. This episode also covers the challenges that can come when building a factory and production line in Mexico and operating an operations and sales team out of the US all while trying to maintain as much of a virtual workforce as possible. 

    Dave Munson leads with the belief that ‘competing on price is a race to the bottom’. Saddleback focuses on nothing less than top quality and products have a 100-year warranty – it’s why their tagline is whose tagline is,“They’ll fight over it when you’re dead”. But Dave is always quick to say, they are a people business cleverly disguised as leather bag business. Today, Saddleback is a wonderful success story where true brand fans, word of mouth marketing and some interesting videos allow Saddleback to support over 200 workers at their factory in Mexico (where daycare is free and a school has been started).

    Monica Weintraub – Down to Donate, Turning #Slacktivists into #Philanthropists

    Monica Weintraub wants to teach people to do good the easy way. As the founder and CEO of Down to Donate, Monica has delivered into the nonprofit space a charity subscription service whose goal is to redefine what it means to donate and stand up for causes. Her long-term vision is to create the world’s most extensive network of philanthropists, while helping each of Down to Donate’s vetted nonprofit partner organizations receive monthly gifts from the community.

    In this episode of Disruptive CEO Nation, Monica will share the story of her seven years in China where she founded her first company at the age of 23 in the ESL industry. Monica reflects on some of the challenges in the nonprofit space and how Down to Donate seeks to engage the slacktivist generation in a model that they are comfortable with while simultaneously educating donors about the world’s pressing issues through a crowdfunding-meets-subscription based platform. She believes that micro-donations and the set-it-and-forget-it method can lead to big impact.

    Martin is a pure-bred engineer. He has had the interest from a very early age. All the preferred toys let him tinker with something. The only logical step was to study engineering at university. After his second year, he started working as a mechanical engineer for Estanc, a company specialised in pressure vessels.

    After that, he went on to work at Nordic Gas Solutions. There he continued with pressure vessels and constructions as a mechanical engineer but also climber the industry ladder by taking care of production management and client/supplier communications.

    It was there when it became very clear for Martin that some things are quite skewed in the industry. The ordering process was very clumsy and time-consuming. This planted the first seeds for making a change in the industry. After sharing some early thoughts with friends a family, the overall outline of Fractory started hatching.

    From there, a team of 3 co-founders was established, some startup competitions won and the journey got started.

    Bio:

    Ryan Preisner is the co-founder and CEO of boldSOCKS. In his current role, Ryan oversees all of the backend business processes and operations needed to run and grow the company.

    After graduating college, Ryan found a job in a corporate environment working for a large food service distributor as a Marketing Analyst. He found his interests and skills leading him towards opportunities to build efficiencies in business through systems and data. This prompted Ryan to go back to college to continue studies in Computer Information Systems. Ryan was promoted to become the Product Data Supervisor and was able to use his skills to help the organization solve complex data challenges. This included building systems used to create new product data for over 35,000 items by large teams requiring coordinated approvals and hand-offs. Although Ryan found success in his role, he lacked contentment and began dreaming of entrepreneurial ideas.

    Using the skills obtained on the job and in school, Ryan began experimenting with starting his own venture on the side. This included buying and selling snowboards on eBay, buying pallets of returned electronics, building a snowboarding app, and eventually boldSOCKS.com. boldSOCKS was born out of Ryan’s desire to have fun with his work apparel and identifying an opportunity for a sock retailer to carry the best brands and patterns of socks. From the beginning, Ryan had a desire to use boldSOCKS for good and have a mission beyond simply selling socks. This originally started with what they called Bold Contributions, but has evolved into strategically supporting clean water initiatives with the Statement Sockwear brand, ensuring ethical production of their products, and developing a company culture that cares for all it impacts.

    Ryan was born, raised and still resides in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area with his wife Sarah. They have three children (Breckin, Greydin, and Emberlynn). In his free time, Ryan enjoys playing hockey, hiking, helping his wife in their garden, and spending weekly one-on-one time with their kids.

    Ryan Roff

    Ryan Roff is a social entrepreneur with a passion for using business to create measurable change and social justice. He is an owner of boldSOCKS in Grand Rapids, MI and the co-founder of Statement Sockwear (a sock brand with a social enterprise model). Ryan represents the creative and marketing side of boldSOCKS. He currently oversees the strategic and creative development of the brands under the boldENDEAVORS umbrella (boldSOCKS.com, boldSOCKS, boldSOCKS Retail and Statement Sockwear) and casts the long-term vision for the company.

    Before boldSOCKS, Ryan worked as a the packaging coordinator at a major foodservice distributor where he was able to blend strategic brand decisions, art direction, and project management while coordinating the creative development of over 1,000 pieces of packaging artwork and the redesign of four private brands.

    He then moved to a mid-sized agency where he managed the strategic development and implementation of integrated marketing campaigns across various channels and tactics that included apps, web, print, trade shows, social media and videos.

    Ryan now lives on the Northside of Grand Rapids with his wife Brooke and one-year son. Together, they enjoy biking, hiking, camping, climbing, cookouts and being outside. While on the Northside, Ryan and his wife enjoy connecting neighbors through social gatherings and recently developed the Northside Happy Hour—a group of more than 30 people that get together from the neighborhood to enjoy a cocktail every month.

    Misha Kaura, PhD is a 26-year old, award-winning designer who creates made-to-measure and ready-to-wear apparel and accessories for women who know their worth. A pure bloodline descendent of the Kauravas, one of the two Indian founding families who later ruled over Punjab as royals until the Amritsar invasion, she is proud of her heritage. She is also a Chopra, of the cotton business and Indian politics, on her mother’s side. Misha’s design aesthetic is informed by her unique upbringing at the intersection of color, country, and culture. In addition to her training in law, management, and industrial engineering, she is a design specialist who apprenticed at Christian Dior Couture and studied the full spectrum of sculpture, fine arts, fashion, textile, embroidery, handbags, and fine jewelry. Her visual-spatial abilities help her to create from the big picture viewpoint of form, texture, geometry, and symmetry, and her quantitative insights allow her to merchandize, categorize, and customize colors, styles, and silhouettes onto individual clients. Her expertise is in dressing the over 35-year old woman in a flattering manner and her business objective is to level the playing field for older women.

    Misha strives to translate her artistic creativity into commercial and cultural relevance, focusing on permanent designs that appreciate in value over time. To this end, hour-by-hour valuations of her Level 1 to 4 Swarovski crystal covered evening handbags may be tracked via The Handbag Stock on Instagram at @thehandbagstock. Level 5 and 6 handbags are restricted to made to measure clients only. All collaboration handbags with other designers and organizations are placed outside of the Level system and are sold exclusively via external websites and retail partners. In order to best serve clients and to protect their privacy, the Misha Kaura Club is an invite-only, exclusive shopping experience offered online and in person.

    Or grew up in a humble Israeli family. His mother was an elementary school science teacher, and his father a travel agent. At the age of 21, Or found himself at a crossroads, either pursue a degree or find a job. He knew that attending college would be a financial strain on his family and felt that the employment opportunities available to him were disappointing, so he took a leap of faith and decided to move to NY to follow his dream of becoming a real estate mogul.

    Or began his career working for a small boutique rental agency. His job was to lease apartments to young professionals and students. Being a quick learner, it took him merely a year of working in the field to confidently start his own business. He began leveraging residential properties and offering them as alternative accommodations for tourists. This way lodgers could avoid steep hotel bills and save money when they travel. While business was booming, and his company was growing fast, Or, still eager to learn more about real estate, took the next logical step in his career and joined GFI, a commercial real estate brokerage.

    Not long after joining GFI, he had an idea he believed would fundamentally change the way people live. In his own life, he had moved between 7 apartments in just 6 years and describes the experience as needlessly stressful and expensive. Or's vision was to provide end-users with turn-key apartments, and to constantly improve the user experience by integrating user information. This way, renters would save both money and time while enjoying a more flexible, user-friendly, living environment.

    Or believed so strongly in the success of this venture, that in April 2017 he decided to invest all his life savings into it. He worked on improving the concept for almost 6 months before embarking on his first Friends & Family investment round. Following his best friend's advice, he named the company Roomrs.

    Today, Roomrs is a well-known real estate co-living operator which manages more than 400 rooms across 40 buildings. The team quickly grew from 3 people into a 25 people operation. Recently, it secured a seed round of 2.5M.

    Kurt Phelps, CEO of GNR, one of the nation's most successful high tech recruiting firms, has over 20 years experience working with executives to build some of the most powerful corporate teams in the industry. Over the last 2 decades, Kurt found that executives rarely put the same time and effort into networking, developing their digital presence, and establishing their own personal brand as they did for the companies they work for. To solve this problem, Kurt created Phello, the world's first SaaS platform, which allows professionals to organize their years of contacts, communicate with their network on a regular basis, and develop their personal brand and digital presence—laying the groundwork to be top of mind when new opportunities arise.

    One of the co-founders of Eat Your Coffee – creators of the original, naturally caffeinated snack bar. Founded as coffee-deprived college students rushing to our 8am classes, we were looking for a better way to stay energized throughout the day. We joked about eating our coffee, started developing some recipes in our dorm, and sold them in the library for a semester. About three years later now, we've officially graduated from Northeastern University, sold our bars into over 600 retail stores and 700 offices around the country, raised nearly $3M, and sold over 1 million bars and counting. It would be great to learn more about the book you're working on and if there's a fit for our story

    Davis holds a bachelor’s degree in International Marketing, a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Huntington University and a credential in Executive Coaching. She holds a certificate from the National Institution of Health in Protecting Human Research and was named to The Wall Street Journal’s Women of Note database as an innovative woman who shares her expertise and inspiration. In 2015, she was featured by American Express’s Thinking Outside the Box Forum.

    But it isn’t just her education and credentials that qualify her to do what she does for others. Davis is a self-starter and has always been her own boss. At 18 she became a licensed realtor for the state of New York and sold real estate for 3 years. She later became a contractor for Mazda USA and traveled the country for six years as an automotive product specialist and speaker. Simultaneously, her entrepreneurial spirit led her to create Hoo-Kong in 2013, a jewelry line designed to empower its buyers to be the unique, world-changing individuals that they were born to be. While designing jewelry and managing her small business, Davis sought to fill a void in the fulfillment of her passions and launched the Never, Never Give Up campaign as a social responsibility endeavor under the HK umbrella. The campaign quickly gained traction and eventually overtook the jewelry line as the centerpiece of Davis’s business. Hoo-Kong organically evolved into the digital media platform it is today.

    Hoo-Kong now provides tools, resources, and services to help individuals help themselves; discover, learn and grow. This fall Hoo-Kong will be expanding to offer Online Leadership Consultations anytime, anyplace, from any device. By developing this online tool and app it’s aim is to provide confidential support to executives, entrepreneurs, and emerging leaders so that may effectively perform within their organizations.

    Fueled by the desire to instill confidence in others, especially women and girls, Davis spends her spare time volunteering and donating her energy and resources to different causes. In 2015 she sponsored the suicide prevention stage play To Die Alone. She has also led pro-bono workshops on personal and professional development for disadvantaged youth in New York City and volunteers as an English conversation tutor at AAFSC, empowering women through literacy and language development. Davis believes education is a powerful tool and volunteers with GED preparation at Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow where she assists adults in acquiring the academic skills necessary to lift themselves out of poverty and create a better life for themselves and their families.

    Davis makes a concerted effort for her team to discover and share free business and tech courses to bridge gaps between readers and opportunities for growth.

    When asked her favorite quote Davis sites Itochu, “I am one with infinite missions, my workplace is the entire world.”

    Founder & CEO Gnatta

    Founder & Chairman FM Outsource

    Founded his first company in 2012, now runs two successful, profitable businesses with a combined turnover of £5m. Both have been built entirely self-financed, taking on no debt or external investment.

    He founded his first business due to the belief that the way customers and organizations communicate was broken – this has turned into a passion of his and he now runs a successful digital outsourcing firm and a successful technology business producing superior call center technology.

    Jack is a thought leader, regularly sharing his views on customer communication, and the customer service industry in general.

    A large part of Jack’s success so far has come from his focus on hiring the right talent (especially developers, initially a challenge for someone with no coding background) and creating the right culture for each business: one a 400 strong outsource operation and one a 30-strong tech team. His success in doing so has taken both companies to where they are today and his honest, engaging style has played a massive part in this.

    Success By Design: Designer Water “Embodies Alkaline Water Benefits”, Experts Say

    CENTURION, SOUTH AFRICA, May 7th, 2018 – While high PH alkaline water has long been regarded as a “miracle of nature” by those well-versed in holistic medicine, it’s been only recently that it’s become the subject of extensive scientific research. One prime example that is packed with “vitamins, bio-available minerals, antioxidants, and incredible healing properties” is Designer Water, the high alkaline pH bottled water produced using the best available filtering methods in Centurion, South Africa.

    “Water is the essence of life – but I dare say that this phrase should be more specific. High pH alkaline water is what provides the full spectrum of water’s life-enhancing qualities. Our micro-clustering technology ensures that each and every bottle we produce contains the highest quality high pH alkaline water, meaning its nutritional profile and amazing properties remain intact” said Mr. John Thompson, Founder and Managing Director, Designer Water.

    High pH alkaline water benefits have not gone unnoticed by celebrities, either. Mark Wahlberg, Hollywood’s highest paid actor, sat down with Mr. Thompson in December 2017 to discuss how alkaline water changed his life, and how he decided to make selling it one of his many business ventures.

    However, Mr. Thompson was quick to note that high pH alkaline water’s popularity has transcended the realm of exclusivity, seeing as people of all walks of life have come to embrace it as an inextricable part of their lifestyle.

    “We’ve received emails and video testimonials from people from all around the world who rave about the transformative ways with which high pH alkaline water has improved their health and overall well being. Whether they were looking to increase their mental clarity and focus or address the symptoms of various health conditions impacting their quality of life, our customers have stated, time and again, that they will be consuming Designer Water for life.”

    In addition to bottled high pH alkaline water, Designer Water further offers alkaline water products, alkaline water machines and water ionizers through its e-Shop.

    Those wishing to find out more about Designer Water products and its franchise opportunities can do so by visiting the company’s website or by calling 087-550-1231.

    Amanda is Forbes' 30 Under 30 2016 for Retail & E-commerce, Apparel Magazine's 30 Under 30 2016, and the National Retail Federation's Person Changing Retail's Future 2018. She is a mentor with Techstars and AOL's Built by Girls.
