Lisa Conyers Talks About Work & Happiness

12-11-17_JL_conyers

Having both spent many years in the developing world working on poverty issues, Phil Harvey and I found our interests turning to poverty in our own country. Despite the fact that the United States leads the developing world in so many ways, 15% of Americans still live in poverty. How could this be?, we wondered, and we decided to investigate.

Our own Declaration of Independence tells us we are entitled to pursue happiness. …

12-11-17_JL_rob

Q: What attracted you to Free To Choose Network? A: I saw an advertisement for “Free To Choose Network” and immediately thought: “That has to be about Milton Friedman!”  But good looks only go so far in a relationship.  After I met with the entire team in Erie, I knew their culture of self-management and determination to grow the organization would draw me in like a magnet. Q: It’s always a daunting challenge to fill the shoes of a founder. What will your FTCN shoes look like? A: Probably J&M slip-ons, with a tassel…  We need to be flexible to …
