The Road to Why
From Northern Trust Wealth Management
From start-up founders to multi-generational family business owners, most business leaders are driven to succeed for reasons well beyond making-money. Whether it’s a passion for reshaping their industry, creating a family legacy or advancing the causes they care most about — or, in many cases, all of the above — defining the larger “why” of their life’s work is often the most important question of all. On The Road to Why, host Eric Czepyha talks with business owners and entrepreneurs about the intersection of business, family and legacy, sharing insights and life lessons from those who have found success in ways expected and unexpected.
