I learned more from this book than I have in my 45 years of life. It has a little bit of everything for everyone. I don’t own a company but I work for a company that I treat as if it is my company. I can’t wait to apply the concepts in this book to my everyday life and work life! Thank you Shawn for sharing your work and personal life with the world. If everyone followed these practical practices the world would be a different place.
Would you listen to Meaningful Work again? Why?
I already have twice in two weeks. There is so much in this book.As the founder and CEO of Askinosie Chocolate, a small business based in Springfield, Missouri, Shawn’s chocolate is world-renowned and award winning. But this book isn’t about chocolate, it’s about chocolate. (something that you’ll understand once you’ve read it).You see, the way Shawn does business is the way it should be taught in business school. Shawn’s beautiful business model is all about direct trade with farmers of coco beans in the Philippines, Tanzania and Ecuador, about open book management, profit sharing, reverse scale, kinship and community.Shawn tells stories of how his company sustainably feeds thousands of children who were once malnourished, without donations, simply giving money or charity. He talks about the notion of enough, and to ask ourselves, “What is enough”. That individually and in business is it easy to get caught up in the striving for more, but enough is where we can do the work we love with people we love.Shawn also writes about and guides you through a visioning exercise. It is something that he does, and something that he has his chocolate university students, his farmers, and the school students he works with in other countries do. It is powerful and if you want to create personal change in your life, I recommend you do it as well.
What about Shawn Askinosie’s performance did you like?
I loved hearing Shawn narrate each word and tell his story. I couldn't wait to get back in the car again to hear what was next.
Any additional comments?
This is a wonderful book written by beautiful human who has crafted a way to do meaningful business and live life with love and passion.
