Transform Your Business Into A Force For Good (And Profit)

Does your brand have a soul?

Molly Pittman talks with special guest Marshall Morris in this inspiring episode for Marketers and Entrepreneurs. Morris believes that Businesses have the power to solve most of the world’s problems, and by the end of this episode, you will too.

Morris is the Inc 500 Founder of Home Life Media, a portfolio of E-commerce and media brands that focus on people and their pets. They’ve donated over 1 million to veterans with PTSD and fed over 30 million shelter pets. Listen for how he launches all of his brands with “Passion Groups,” how you can move toward more meaning and purpose as a marketer, and why you can be excited about AI’s role in the world.

You Will Learn:

  • That whatever you’re selling can be a tool for something greater
  • The power of building your own communities and “passion groups.”
  • Tactical ways to wrap your purpose into the Identity of your company (and remain profitable)
  • Why many brands fail in their attempts to have an impact
  • How do you identify what purposes you should align with?


And More…

“Talking into the mic is probably 20 percent of what actually goes into making a really amazing show”. Molly Pittman
