Business with Purpose


Nov 16, 2022

My guest this week is Robert Craig, an innovator, entrepreneur and creator of Robert Craig Films. He has a long history of taking start-ups and guiding their growth to become successful companies. Before he produced movies, Robert founded Gutterglove in 1996, the leading gutter guard supplier in the U.S.

In 2019, he founded Robert Craig Films to produce inspirational and hopeful movies that make people smile and bring a high level of entertainment with spiritually uplifting storylines to the viewer. Robert believes God has a plan for him to make quality films with spiritually uplifting messages.

FEATURED QUOTES

The last 30 years I’ve been on a journey where the Lord was molding me in a bunch of different ways.

Now my attitude is completely different. It’s not about me. It’s about God.

I can tell the timing is right, because my heart is so different now than it was back then.

Thank you to our partners of the show!

Are you looking to clean up your household cleaning products this year? MamaSuds would like to help! The best way is to simply start with one product. Every time you run out of a specific cleaning product, replace it with a non-toxic one. Another tip, purchase a product that has multiple uses. The MamaSuds Collection has many multiple use products (castile soap or the toilet bombs are just a few!). Their blog has lots of great tips and a castile soap recipe that you can print and make a lot of your own effective cleaners! Give them a try at www.mamasuds.com and don't forget to use the coupon code MOLLY for 15% off your order!

I’d like to thank our other partner of the show and that’s Tradlands. Tradlands is an INCREDIBLE sustainable fashion brand that believes in clothing that you can live in NOW and love forever.

I love how comfortable and stylish each piece - and they come in colors like classic neutrals or vibrant hues.
