Carly Stein left behind her lucrative Wall Street trading career at Goldman Sachs to pursue her true passion. A beekeeper, Carly discovered the miraculous healing properties of bee propolis and created a fast-growing nutraceuticals company called Beekeeper’s Naturals. Committed to conscious capitalism, Carly is using her company as a platform for sustainable farming and pesticide free beekeeping. We talk about overcoming fear and taking the leap into the unknowns of a startup as well as how to hire a great team and scale it fast to meet growing demand.
What would you do if your mentor told you your life would “amount to nothing”, that you would fail and be miserable, if you left your high-paid job took a leap of faith into entrepreneurship?
How would you answer your higher calling if everyone around you was imploring you to ignore it?
Carly Stein had the courage to ignore the naysayers and step fully into a powerful passion using business to solve not one but several important challenges.
She’s CEO and founder of Beekeeper’s Naturals, a natural health product company developing innovative bee-made nutraceuticals for effective natural solutions to modern health problems. Carly also uses her company as a platform to raise awareness of the growing threat of bee colony collapse and promoting sustainable practices and pesticide-free beekeeping.
I’m excited to talk with Carly Stein, because she makes it so clear why its vital we know and align with our higher calling, even when it means confronting our own fears and those around us. They mean well, but only you know what is in your own heart.

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.
