Doug Rauch is our 10th Cinderella CEO podcast interview. Soft spoken, and really smart, the former president of Trader Joe’s, and current CEO of Conscious Capitalism, Doug Rauch has also started a project called the Daily Table to bring fresh food to the inner cities. Doug talks about how he fell into the grocery biz, and how to avoid “crapitalism!” We talk about how to excel as an entrepreneur, and why listeners may want to consider becoming “intrapreneurs” as an alternative. Doug discusses capitalism, how it can be a force for good, and why “Conscious Capitalism” caught his attention. (This is a re-edit of the first interview for better audio clarity). Listen to “Interview with Doug Rauch, former President of Trader Joe's” on Spreaker.
Co-Chair of the International Conscious Capitalism Board, Doug Levy, author of Can’t Buy Me Like, and founder of the 20-year old digital agency, MePlusYou, has found time to form a new start up called Tap Goods. I interviewed him a few weeks ago. He recommends reading these books, The Lean Start Up, Holacracy and of course Conscious Capitalism.
In a wildly unpredictable election year, Michael Lyons, character actor in the Netflix series “House of Cards” and I (Cary Broussard), are launching a joint speaking tour to draw parallels between the race for the White House and what we can learn (or unlearn) from the candidates behaviors, branding and game plans. As a former U.S. Senate staffer and communications executive, I knew we couldn’t keep our mouths shut any longer….that we couldn’t let this campaign kick our butts and leave us depleted. So…. we are taking our non-partisan, entertaining opinions and brand lessons “on the road.” With an ever-increasing number of candidate “aha” moments to emulate or avoid, we are leveraging our public speaking experience, and experiences working with all sorts of people and media (yes, media are people too) to dissect candidates’ brand […]
Doug Rauch, the former president of Trader Joe’s, now the CEO of the non-profit, Conscious Capitalism, sat down with Cinderella CEO On Air in Chicago to record a fascinating interview. Rauch, still a grocery guru, who cares deeply about the power of good that business brings to the table, recently started a new retail concept called the Daily Table. Busy leading the National Conscious Capitalism movement, he shares his story of how he started with Trader Joe’s, and how he helped grow the grocery store chain. He gives advice on how to avoid “crapitalism,” how to excel as an entrepreneur, and why listeners may want to consider becoming intrapreneurs within a company. And of course, he talks about Conscious Capitalism and how practicing its tenets are key to a company’s success, and ideally making capitalism […]
Getting to know Millennials is a priority for most, whether you’re in business, academics or parenting – just to name a few professions. I’ve been pleasantly surprised and challenged by this generation that represents a group of 80 million, according to the 2/24/2015 NPR story “The New Boom,” responsible for $1 trillion in spending a year. Like NPR, our company also conducts focus groups with Millennials, but we call them Millennial Advisory Councils. Our reason for starting the councils in Dallas and New York was to help companies hire Millennials. I am rooting for this generation and all they want to accomplish, especially my friend Song. We convinced Song to let us capture her thoughts on video below. According to our Millennial Advisory Circle… Top 10 Reasons a Millennial Gets out of Bed in the […]

I’m reading a book, called “The Power of No” that my friend Beth gave me. I’ve spent most of my life saying “yes.” For the last 20 years, I’ve spent most holidays driving or flying to visit relatives. I’ve loved every single holiday, including living in Jersey City when my sisters came to visit us for Thanksgiving. However, I have never felt so relaxed after staying home for Thanksgiving this year. I can tell my husband needed this Stay-Thanksgiving even more than I did. On the other hand, it’s so tough not to be with everyone we love, who happen to be everywhere. I think because I’ve been told “no” a hundred times in the last two years, I’ve come to value “yes” so much more. A yes is like Christmas – it’s my friend […]
For those of you who don’t know what age range the Millennial group refers to…the “Millennials” are the generation born between 1975 and 1995 (18 years of age to 38). There’s a whole bunch of Millennials, the next biggest population bubble to come along since the Boomers (1945 to 1964). One of the great Milliennials I’ve come to know is a young woman named Sylvia Woloszyn. I met Sylvia when she attended my class on special event marketing at NYU. I soon found out that Sylvia is both soft spoken and brilliant. So when Sylvia graduated, I was thankful she agreed to work with my company and help it grow into a larger entity. She has a full time position with an airline company and works remotely for Broussard Global on a part time basis. […]
