15 Mar A mission to celebrate and serve | An interview with Jake Kloberdanz – CEO of ONEHOPEWINE.com
In this episode of the DREAM. THINK. DO. podcast, Mitch Matthews interviews Jake Kloberdanz, CEO and Co-Founder of ONEHOPE. They talk about starting a cause-based business with your friends, how to find your “sweet spot” and how to look at fear in a new way.
Isn’t it interesting how sometimes one phone call can completely change the direction of our lives?
Sometimes it’s a path we’ve been wanting to follow but just hadn’t started…maybe the timing wasn’t right or we lacked courage.
That’s what happened to Jake Kloberdanz, my guest on today’s episode of DREAM THINK DO…
One phone call changed everything.
When Jake was only 23 years old, he got together with some friends and founded ONEHOPE, a cause-centric company. That was 10 years ago and he hasn’t looked back.
Since then he’s garnered recognition from Bloomberg’s Businessweek Top 25 Under 25, Wine Enthusiast’s Top 40 Under 40, and by Ernst & Young as their Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
I invited Jake to talk about the inspiration behind ONEHOPE and how he and his friends have built such a successful cause-centric business.
