Pullout Quotes:
“that it's super important, you know, when we do business with the heart or we do business with goodness. It actually amplifies our qualities as a human being, as an individual, and then it kind of trickles down into everything that the business does. So even good can kind of... expand like a virus.”
 
“70% of these leaders agreed that they had a responsibility to create positive impact (...) but at the same time only 40% of those people felt personally responsible. So I think people are waking up to the idea that businesses can be doing good, but there's a gap there that we've found of the kind of the personal ownership to create positive change.”
 
“Don't feel overwhelmed, just try something today that you weren't doing yesterday and build from there.”
 
“Since COVID, there is a change in the thinking and how people look at business, how people look at each other actually.”
