Read about the Bee Cause here:
Carly Stein walked away from her lucrative job on the trading floor at Goldman Sachs to pursue her passion for beekeeping and her discovery that bee propolis is a powerful natural healing agent.
At Goldman she was working 16-hour days, and says she felt “empty, depressed, disconnected”. At Carly thought something was wrong with her, that she should be more grateful for the spectacular New York apartment, her wealth and prospects. Except before long she was making bee products in her apartment, and her family and friends staging an intervention to keep her on the Wall St. path
Now Beekeeper’s Naturals is a fast-growing company and Carly is among a growing movement of conscious entrepreneurs leading “evolved enterprise” companies, that is companies with business models focused on the greater societal good.
