Episode Summary

I was introduced to Josh Whiton by a mutual friend not to long ago and my view of the world has been expanded ever since that day. Josh has a way of actualizing his lofty goals of elevating the world by integrating his passions in the areas of business, technology, social justice, and environmentalism.

On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, Josh and I discuss his deep-seated desires for autonomy and freedom paired with his proclivity towards wanting the make the world a better place by following his curiosity and serving his higher purpose. Josh started his entrepreneurial journey shortly after graduating from college, and for the past decade, he has found strategic ways to solve problems and serve his community. He has always been an independent thinker, elevated to a higher place of existence and understanding by spiritual experiences that enhance his perspective of the world at large. He believes that the future of humanity exists at the intersection of business, technology, social justice, and environmentalism and that when approached the right way, this intersection accomplishes altruism and hedonism simultaneously.

Josh’s personal and professional journeys have been intertwined since his childhood when he began the practice of journaling. His philosophical leanings allow him to recognize the feedback loops that have remained unclosed for many people since their childhood, leaving a lot of lingering unmet needs for which they are seeking healing through coping mechanisms. When this healing occurs the natural way, it leads to self-acceptance, growth, and unconditional love for self and the world. One of the overflows of Josh’s own journey to unconditional love and growth is Make Soil, whose mission is to orchestrate makers and contributors across the U.S. to convert compost into living soil.
