Greg Hemmings is the CEO and co-founder of Hemmings House, a certified B-Corp film production company focusing on producing content that makes a difference. Based in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, Hemmings House has been producing film content interested in making a difference for nearly a decade, and their television series and documentaries have been sold to almost 60 broadcasters around the world.
Greg is involved in many entrepreneurial ventures besides Hemmings House. He was also a co-founder of the Love Economy, a movement around a new model of business that focuses on more than just wealth and prosperity; he hosts The Boiling Point podcast, a podcast geared toward entrepreneurs; and Filmpreneur, a mastermind he hosts where he coaches entrepreneurs on how to utilize storytelling to influence positive social change.
In this episode, we chat about how Greg has become a jack of all trades; how he is working hard to have an influence on his kids but allow them to chart their own paths; his thoughts on failure; and working to change the world through the work that he does. He is grateful to the Certified B Corporation community for ensuring that stance for his company. We also go on a fun tangent about the benefits of plant medicine.

“As a lifelong learner, and somebody who wants to experience life to the fullest, having some big fails is really important. Maybe I just understand that. Some other people are really afraid of failure and being seen as a failure.” -Greg Hemmings
