Recently featured in the movie Rise Up, with such greats as the Dalai Lama, Tony Robbins, Jack Canfield, and more, Peta Kelly is a leader on a mission. She believes in millennial power and the ability of their tribe to bring positive change to our planet that will benefit not just this generation, but many more to come. Billion dollar companies are beginning to sit up and take notice of the millennial tribe, realizing that if they are going to survive and thrive in the coming decades, they need to listen to what this bright, young generation has to say. They also need to make their workplace culture inviting to these creative minds who will change the face of business as we know it.

EPISODE 4: Will Work for Chocolate: Evolution of a Conscious Company

Pana Barbounis had an idea. He wanted to make quality chocolate. He didn’t want to make just any chocolate, his would be one of the finest chocolates in the world. It wouldn’t just taste wonderful, it would be good for those who ate it, it would be vegan, organic, hand-made, and hand-packaged. Customers would be able to taste the difference. His company would also be kind to the earth. The company’s motto would be “Love Your Insides, Love the Earth.” He delivered his first bars to local companies via his Vespa scooter.

Now, little more than four years later, Pana Chocolate is available in over 4,000 stores and 25 countries around the world. It is one of the largest vegan, organic chocolate companies on the planet. He has a huge Instagram following, and as Jeffrey Slayter points out, his is the perfect example of a conscious company. He’s been invited to the show to share what he has learned with those who are also growing successful businesses.
