The Conscious Entrepreneur Podcast: COME ALIVE. BE THE CHANGE.
By Chelsea Bay Dennis: Coach, Strategist, Speaker, Designer, Conscious Entrepreneur
TCE 022: Ty Schmidt, The Biking Conscious Entrepreneur
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?
A Canadian import, Ty grew up in small town Manitoba. After receiving his Masters degree in Physical Therapy from The University of North Dakota and an 7 year stint in Tucson, Ty moved to Traverse City in 2006. He is married to the lovely Johanna, a Leelanau County girl, and is currently a part time physical therapist (he job shares with Johanna) at Munson. Ty started Carter’s Compost, a bike-powered community composting business, with his two boys, Carter and Jameson, in 2012 and then co-founded Norte!, a bike-centric, youth-focused nonprofit, with Johanna in 2013.
“With a supportive wife to job share with and prioritizing work/life/family balance, I’ve been able to enjoy a successful and meaningful career as a physical therapist while also having the luxury of time to focus on my passions: Traverse City, compost and bicycles.” – Ty Schmidt – Physical Therapist, Carter’s Compost and Norte!
