#001: Duke Stump - Rethinking Business, Lessons From Nike, Lulu, & Lime, Finding Your Perfect Day Recipes for Life with Deepa Pulipati

    • Self-Improvement

Today’s guest is Duke Stump. If you’ve not had the privilege of getting to know him, this is what you need to know. He’s been the former VP of Product Marketing at Nike and had a tenure at Nike for 15 years. Duke was also the EVP of Community and Brand at Lulu and, more recently, CMO at Lime. To learn more about what he's up to now, you have to listen to our conversation. He shared about his upbringing, the values his parents instilled in him, how he deals with conflict, and the tools that he uses in his day-to-day life. One story that might surprise you involves him using a specific tool that gave him insight to quit Nike at the peak of his career…. Spoiler: it turns out it wasn’t the peak.



By the end of today’s conversation, you will have new ingredients to explore ways of unlearning business in the traditional way that we have been conditioned to think and ask the most important question.. And that is, “what does the world need most that you are most uniquely qualified to offer”? Much food for thought, and the ask is to think outside the box.



About Recipes for Life:

You’ve developed a self-awareness of who you are and where you want to go… but now what? Sound familiar? In my 20 years of practice as a Superior Court Mediator, clinician, executive coach, and parent, I’ve noticed one thing above all: No meaningful transformation can happen unless you find and apply the tools and skills that are right for you. See, the thing is, without tools, without a recipe, you might as well flip a coin and hope it works. Or, you’ll get burned out listening to bad advice and following tips that just aren’t useful in your situation. I’ve been there, and I’ve seen thousands of clients right there as well… My name is Deepa, and Recipes for life is my show where you and I learn the ingredients of high performing, well-adjusted humans, how they get through their own life… all to craft a recipe for life of our own.
