Bert Jacobs is the Co-Founder of the $100M lifestyle brand Life Is Good. When Bert and his brother John started the company in 1994, they had $78 in their pockets, lived out of their van, and sold t-shirts on the streets of Boston. Was this their way of avoiding the “real world”? You betcha. Did it turn into something much bigger? Absolutely. Bert tells Franti of his childhood and the impact his mother made on his life and the company. Bert speaks on the power of one's disposition in life and emphasises how business will be the hero of the 21st century. Bert also gives helpful insight on how to start your own business and what it looked like to create Life is Good. Furthermore, Franti and Bert have a fruitful conversation on the current injustices in the world and, of course, how to stay human during this unprecedented time.
