Bert Jacobs inspires with lessons on the importance of an optimistic mindset in life and a culture of innovation, entrepreneurship and social responsibility in business.

Bert is the chief executive of the Life is Good apparel company, which he and his brother John launched in 1994 with just $78 in their pockets. Today, Life is Good is a $100 million lifestyle brand sold in more than 4,500 retail stores worldwide. A believer in social responsibility, Bert made giving back to the community integral to the business’s mission – the company donates at least 10 percent of its annual net profits to the Life is Good Kids Foundation to improve the lives of children.

In his book, Life is Good: The Book / How to Live with Purpose and Enjoy the Ride, Bert shares insights on how he and his brother transformed a failing t-shirt startup into a multi-million company through the power of optimism. With real-world takeaways on discovering greater meaning in your life and making a positive impact on the world, he leaves audiences with groundbreaking strategies for fostering innovation, overcoming obstacles, realizing your full potential, and building not only a successful business, but a successful life.
