038: Connecting the Golden Thread of Humanity with Jeff Scult

We live in a society where we’re taught that our clothes are disposable. 80 billion new pieces of clothes are made every year and 87% will wind up in an incinerator landfill within 18 months. Out of that 87%, only 3% are made of sustainable fibers, which means there’s massive soil toxification that’s also leaching to your waterways. 30% of the microplastics in the ocean come from the clothes we not only toss but also wash as microplastics are leached into our washing machines that go into the waterways. 

In this episode, Jeff Scult, founder of One Golden Thread, shares the impetus behind this sustainable clothing brand that wasn’t initially set out to be a clothing company. Rather it was actually a physical manifestation of his full self-expression over his life’s journey. It was his calling to share the philosophy that despite all the curve balls thrown at us, we are each golden inside – and this simple truth is what connects us together as a golden thread.

Jeff also shares a pragmatic marketing lesson that he learned from his dog and the transformative workshop that he attended, which was also the precursor of One Golden Thread. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Jeff’s experience with alchemy through his dog
  • Seeing things from an abundance mindset over a scarcity mindset
  • The spiritual cause behind his dis-ease
  • The precursor for one golden thread
  • How to claim your golden voice
  • Giving yourself the permission to shift and pivot to your purpose
  • Not a story about “me,” but about “we”
  • One golden thread as a manifestation of self-expression
  • Regeneration, instead of sustainability
