    #001: Duke Stump - Rethinking Business, Lessons From Nike, Lulu, & Lime, Finding Your Perfect Day

    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.
