Considering Legacy with Nicky Krete from Very Tales
Today on Founders of Good we are joined by Nicky Krete, the founder of the new company Very Tales! Very Tales is just starting out but the vision for their work is to create visual representations of people's legacy in the format of a children's book. The company is rooted in Nicky's own values and one of the pillars of their work is to locate and explore the values of their customers too. Nicky believes that through this sort of exploration an individual can clarify and crystalize what they really want to be remembered for and how they want to live their life right now! We hear from Nicky about how this idea came about, the process of going full time into this endeavour, and some of the challenges that she has faced already. We discuss the importance of community and how support from peers can make all the difference in following your dreams and achieving them too. Nicky unpacks some of the more practical sides of the business and her hopes for what she might achieve with Very Tales. The company seems decidedly more focussed on values than profit but that does not mean that Nicky is unaware of how to run a functioning business! For this amazing meditation on inspiration bravery and connection, be sure to listen in with us!
