Inspiring Guests. Authentic Talk.
Today we are joined by Jean Thompson who is the CEO and Owner of the very exceptionally Seattle Chocolate Company and jcoco. A longtime fan and investor in the company during her previous life as an executive at Microsoft, Jean acquired Seattle Chocolate after the Nisqually Earthquake destroyed the company’s factory in 2001, and with no prior C-suite experience, boldly stepped in as CEO to rebuild the business from the ground up. You will love this interview including hearing more about Jean and her team’s responsible sourcing initiative. This episode is filled with so much inspiration and takeaways you won’t want to miss it!

This podcast is amazing! Insightful, uplifting, inspiring, thought provoking…I can’t get enough! As a recent college graduate trying to chart my own path…I find golden nuggets of wisdom in every podcast. I’ve been following Kara for years and love getting to know her in this facet. Such a valuable listen!
Kara has a great balance of getting to the details and finding the deeper threads of the concepts while keeping things fluid and fun. A must listen for anyone looking to learn.
I am so inspired by Kara and not a bit surprised by the line up of “movers and shakers” she has chosen to interview. When I saw Dr. Robert Lustig on the list I was absolutely delighted! Keep up the fight against sugar, Kara, and keep inspiring others on a daily basis! Thank you for what you do.
I love Kara’s questions and her naturally flowing conversations with her guests. I’ve learned so much about developing your own business with little to no experience from the episodes with Alli Webb, Randi Zuckerberg and Ellen Bennett. Kara can relate too based off of her interview in Rebecca Jarvis’ no limits podcast which makes it even more relatable for me. Great job!!!
