    LIVE: Charlotte Changemakers (Brian Moynihan & Marvin Ellison)

    LIVE: Charlotte Changemakers (Brian Moynihan & Marvin Ellison)

    In this special episode, we're sharing a conversation that was recorded in front of a live audience at the Charlotte Business Alliance's annual economic outlook event. Ric sat down with two friends who also happen to be CEOs of two of the largest companies headquartered in Charlotte - Brian Moynihan of Bank of America, and Marvin Ellison, of Lowes Home Improvement.
    They discussed how each CEO plans to navigate a challenging economic environment next year, why they all agree that purpose is good for business, how their own journeys inspired the ways they pay it forward, and just for fun - what their dream jobs would be if they weren't CEOs.
    This is 3 Things (LIVE) with Brian Moynihan and Marvin Ellison.

    Say It Now (Walter Green)

    Say It Now (Walter Green)

    Walter Green is a former CEO, a best-selling author, and a close friend to Ric for more than 30 years. But this episode focuses on the most recent chapter of Walter's life, and his work founding the "Say it Now" movement.
    "Say It Now" inspires people to live a happier, more purposeful life by expressing more gratitude and by having "Living Tributes." The point is to honor people who have had a significant impact on us now - not at funerals, where it's too late. Ric and Walter discuss the original inspiration for Say It Now, how to practice gratitude in everyday life, and how to design your life for better outcomes.
    If you enjoy this conversation, we recommend checking out Walter's recent TED Talk, called "Why we should eulogize the living." As Walter says - "it’s often too late, but never too soon."

    "We Changed The World" (Hugh McColl)

    Today's guest is one of few leaders who can say they truly changed the world - Hugh McColl. He's the visionary leader who built Bank of America into what was once the world's largest bank - a process which shaped the modern banking industry as we know it today. He's also been called "The Man Who Built Charlotte" for his undeniable role in transforming this small unknown town into one of the fastest-growing cities in the Southeast.
    In this special episode, hear what it was like to grow a business by FIFTY TIMES its original scale - and what, in his opinion, it was really all for. And of course, Hugh shares his unique perspective on helping to build a city over the course of 4 decades - from education systems, to arts and culture, and even bringing an NFL franchise to the Carolinas for the very first time.

All positive

Great Varied Perspectives

Love the variety of guests and the differences in perspectives. Wouldn’t mind some guests that are a bit more contrarian to your point of views. There are three things to learn from every point of view, even if it’s not always positive. Love the show!
