By Chelsea Bay Dennis: Coach, Strategist, Speaker, Graphic Designer, Conscious Entrepreneur
TCE 032: Steve Nance, the Grocer Conscious Entrepreneur
Steve has been in business most all his life, from partnerships in his late teens to his own small businesses in his twenties to working for the largest firms in his thirties through fifties and now filling the role as the General Manager of Oryana, our local food cooperative.
“I am an unintentional, intentional grocer! Though grocery store management was never one of my career goals, I am pleased to find myself leading a committed team working to provide healthy, sustainable, socially just food to our community and collaborate with many of those doing amazing things in our community, region and the world! I’ve experienced the challenges of being an entrepreneur through the politics of negotiating the corporate ladder but think I learned the essentials to successful business all the way back to my paper route and lawn cutting days: Care about what you do, take care of people, and be very suspicious of adults!” – Steve Nance, January 2016 Fulfillament Storyteller
Fulfillament is a storytelling event featuring local community leaders and entrepreneurs who share their journey towards fulfillment and meaning through vocation- their inside story. Each storyteller issues a challenge for the audience to do something to find fulfillment in their own lives. This event awards a $500 grant to an audience member with a good idea that needs some help to get it moving. This story was from the January 2016 Fulfillament in Traverse City, MI
The Conscious Entrepreneur is coaching and strategy for those looking to create or find meaningful work aligned with your values, strengths and what makes you come alive. Make your ideas happen, be successful, make a difference, from the inside out.
This Podcast is all about personal, inside stories from Conscious Entrepreneurs… Why they do what they do, how did they get there, and how does it make them come alive?
