In this episode, we're chatting with accomplished mission-driven business leader John Replogle, current Executive Chair of Leesa Mattress.

Founded as a Benefit Corporation, Leesa was built around the global issue of childhood bedlessness. For every 10 beds they sell, Leesa donates 1 to a child in need. Already, they’ve donated over 38,000 beds. They also use sustainable materials and design and manufacture their mattresses right here in the USA.

In our Episode with John, we discuss:

  • John's experience as the CEO of both Seventh Generation and Burt's Bee's, as well as being a founding member of One Better Ventures.
  • What makes a business 'mission-driven' and why they're necessary for true change
  • Mission-driven vs purpose-driven companies
  • Leesa's #1bedlessnight campaign
  • How to start a purpose-driven business (or embed practices into an existing one)
