Behind the Brilliance

Jul 28, 2016

This week's guest is the smart and heart-centered Gunnar Lovelace. He's the co-founder and co-CEO of Thrive Market, an online market offering top-selling healthy brands delivered to your doorstep for wholesale prices. I'm a huge fan of the company and this conversation made me a fan of Gunnar.

If you've ever considered starting a company based on a passion or if you're a current or aspiring leader of any kind, this episode is a must listen. I pull back the curtain on Gunnar's journey as an entrepreneur and big thinker.

We covered a LOT including:

-Gunnar's journey from growing up on a communal farm to running a $100M+ company

-how Gunnar thinks about failure

-how Gunnar chose his cofounders (great advice here if you ever want to start something with another person)

-work/life harmony

-why Gunnar kept pushing after being rejected by 50 venture capital firms (their most recent round was $100M so...yeah)

-and much more!
