Episode 6: Finding fulfillment (and coffee) through social enterprise

Jeff Ericson at the TEDxSnoIsleLibraries Salon event in May 2016 at Edmonds Community College.

Jeff Ericson started working at age 12 and found retirement-level success by the time he was 30. What the avowed entrepreneur says that he hadn’t discovered, despite his theological education, was fulfillment. In his habitual jump-first, look-second approach, Ericson says he uprooted his family and moved to Camano Island from Tucson, Ariz. Working, however, turned out to be more fun than golf so he started Camano Island Coffee Co. and building a way to give back more than a great cup of coffee.
