“Our CEO has a saying. He doesn’t care how late you stay or how early you come in. He just wants you to work as hard as you need to feel like you’ve made an impact on as many lives as you want for that day.”
Clearly, Paul Yoo’s words have sunk in. Chloe Obico, Marketing Specialist for This Bar Saves Lives, and I are having a conversation at eight in the evening.
With a growing team of just over fifteen people and a global brand that’s recently added domestic giving in the US, there is a lot to be done.
Luckily, Chloe describes her team as one that’s always helping each other out and stepping up when they need to, even when it’s outside their comfort zone or expertise.
Plus, having actors without business backgrounds as founders seems to have instilled a sense of making it happen and being willing to learn into the company culture.
I talked with Chloe about the current landscape of social enterprises, the responsible practices of This Bar Saves Lives, and how she’s grown as a professional while working in a mission-driven company.
