    The Best Place For Business & Sustainability Talk!

2084 is a podcast about designing tomorrow, creating a sustainable future for all…told by the people building it today.

In our episodes we talk with entrepreneurs, idealists, innovators, academics, politicians & celebrities. We talk about the futures they stand to create, taking a behind the scenes look at the ups and the downs, the products, the plans, the failures and the successes…all told in their own words. If you’ve ever wanted an excuse to have hope for the future – or just wondered how you can make a difference – we invite you to join the journey of 2084, and together we will write a different story.

‘2084’ EP 15. ‘Socially Responsible Investing’ w/ Mark Chabot: RBC Wealth Management

In episode 15 of SustainableJoes’ 2084, Stephen sits down with Mark Chabot of RBC Wealth Management.

A few weeks ago Mark screened our documentary to his cliental and his SRI & ESG presentation was so engaging, we asked to record a episode in an effort to bring more value your direction…and empower you to ask better questions when it comes to how you invest.

This episode is the basics behind socially responsible investing.

Not only does Mark bring decades of financial experience to our conversation, but he is also a superdad, committed community volunteer, and one heck of a Montreal Canadians Hockey fan!

This episode is candid and personal for me, as Mark is a dear friend.  You can connect with Mark at www.MarkChabot.com

We will be back next week with a new episode,  I hope you enjoy.

Sustainably Yours,

Stephen

Bonus – Income Report August 2017

Welcome you to our first SustainableJoes’ income report episode.

Our intention is to accomplish the following three things with this series of income reporting episodes:

FIRST

As we work to produce and share content inspiring the leaders of today and tomorrow, with better ways of being, acting and developing; we want to provide a realistic view of what growing a business looks like…AND we want to provide that perspective in real time. Real time being as we transition sustianablejoes from a passion project to a successful enterprise.

SECONDLY

At SustainableJoes we believe transparency is absolutely critical to build a foundation of trust. As such, I want to transparently Illustrate what revenues we bring in, operational costs, and other channels of support.

THIRD

We want to say thank you, and share our plan for the next 30 days.

This is a vulnerable episode for us, as traditionally we would keep finances close to the chest. However, we believe this is the right thing to do and hope it supports your growth.

So lets get right to!

Yours,

SustainableJoes
