#22 Lara van Druten on the stupidity of the system, and her way out Un-Machine Yourself

    • Maatschappij & cultuur

Some people in this world, but not so many nowadays it seems, are truly humble. This woman is one of them - in the intro to the podcast, Roanne will give you the living proof. Meet: Lara van Druten, CEO and founder of The Waste Transformers, an award-winning company that works worldwide to deal with waste in a way that is environmentally ánd socially sustainable. She's a powerhouse, but, as said: a humble one. Lucky for us, she packs her story full of positive inspiration on how to make change, while also making money.

Roanne and Lara discuss:

How young Lara saw what no one back then saw: we need online universities (and she opened one!)
How she then saw that the current waste system, is simply stupid
How she managed to found a smarter waste company - without any relevant study background (but she has a major in philosophy, as well as in international politics, amongst others!)
Why she allows chaos in her mind
What good plans all need if they want to turn into successes (hint: business!)
Why words like value and purpose, actually became valuable again
