Going All in on Your Business with Intention


You all know about Barefoot Wine, you know, the wine with the foot on the label. Well, what you might not know is that it was started in a laundry room by two people who had no money and no knowledge of their industry. Please welcome, the founders of Barefoot Wine, now the #1 wine brand in the world, and New York Times Bestselling Authors of The Barefoot Spirit, Michael Houlihan & Bonnie Harvey.



As entrepreneurs, Michael and Bonnie learned a ton of lessons the hard way building the famous Barefoot Wine brand. They had to overcome the same challenges that every start-up faces. In the process, Michael and Bonnie discovered Guiding Principles for Success (GPS) that they now share with other startups to increase the chances of their survival. When Michael and Bonnie finally sold their brand to the world's largest wine company, they wrote their book and have been speaking & advising ever since.
