Ep. 25: Purpose-driven Business: Fusing Clean Energy with Capitalism

Posted on: December 3rd, 2020

My guest Steve Melink shares a powerful and very important story: highly knowledgeable about clean energy, he built a case why clean energy is critically important for humankind, wrote a book about it (Fusion Capitalism – Clean Energy Vision for Conservatives), has taken risks by building a purpose-driven business around a politically charged issue, and he walks the walk on clean energy with his 100+ employee company in Cincinnati, OH.

They tell us we shouldn’t talk about politics or religion in business. Steve talks about both, in a way that is grounded in science and should resonate with reasonable people on either side of the political aisle. My take-away – in addition to Steve’s clean energy message – is “run your business with a purpose bigger than yourself.”
