MINNETONKA, Minn., Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This is for all you baby boomer dads with kids coming into the entrepreneurial workforce. Stephen Coonan is of the baby-boom era. He has always worked "hard for the money" and intended to keep as much as he could.
So when his millennial son ventured out in his own business, the father was confused and bewildered that the son had structured his future efforts into a "B-Corp" or "Benefit Corporation." This quickly growing type of company emphasizes a positive impact on society as well the environment. Profit is the secondary goal.
Why would his son do that? After patiently explaining the plan to his father, he now makes the compelling argument that contributing to the betterment of the world is a greater reward than having coffers full of gold. Instead, his aim is to give away as much profit as possible! Like Paul Newman of Newman's Own or Blake Mycoskie of TOMS Shoes, he is using his business to support charitable causes and promote healthy lifestyles. His son shares his product with those in need and is pleased that he can help others in this special way.
Stephen Jr's hot new B-Corp is called UNION Protein. It manufactures and markets specialty gluten-free, non GMO products found on the shelves of many farmer’s markets in its base of Minnesota, the Midwest and as far away as California. For every purchase, a donation is made to local food banks and disaster relief groups. To see the new UNION Protein products, click here.
"We're committed to making a better world as much as we're committed to making a better source of all-natural protein. That's why every bag of UNION Protein purchased helps those people who need it most," claims the younger Stephen. His belief is that everyone has the right to a well-nourished life.
To him, it's all an opportunity to do things the right way.
