“It's not really about disrupting an industry, It's about reinforcing an industry” are the words of Andy Hunter, founder of Bookshop.org. This week's episode of Conversations of Inspiration brings us a modern day David vs Goliath story, Andy’s mission is to make it as easy as Amazon to shop responsibly and ethically, ensuring that books remain part of popular culture. With a highly innovative business model that has thrived during the pandemic, Andy shares with Holly where his love of books first originated, creating a movement for socially conscious consumers and the importance of independent bookshops within our communities. This honest and raw conversation not only demonstrates the power of hard work and passion but also serves as a stark reminder of how vital books are to humanity. If there was ever a call to action to support our independent businesses and to continue the drive towards a culture of ethical, conscious consumerism, it’s this.
