1980) owner of more than 12 businesses.

Evan is co-founder & CEO of Greater Good Radio and Bubble Tea Supply. Evan and his wife Kari
started Greater Good Radio to help businesses help the community while benefiting their bottom line. On their radio show – and now through their book, they interview top entrepreneurs on their business but also their community involvement. By making these interviews available through the media they hope to inspire future leaders.
