For some, it might seem incongruous to try and run a business from the perspective of an artist.  It's exactly that perspective that has made the Zingerman's Community of Businesses such a success. In this week's 'creative:impact," we explore the artistic vision of Zingerman's co-founder and co-owner, Ari Weinzweig, and the business model it helped create that is being imitated around the world.

Jelly Bean lived a long, full life. When the Corgi passed away in 2015 she was 17-years old.  Jelly Bean spent a lot of time running with her human. Those experiences, and memories, have inspired  a future of service work in her honor. This month marks the 2nd annual 'Jelly Bean Jump Up!'

This week on Art and Soul: The Art of Better Living, I speak with the co-founder of Zingerman's, and the publisher of several books, Ari Weinzweig.

He has a new book out titled "The Power of Beliefs in Business," but the lengthy book has information and insights that can be applied to everyone's everyday life as well.

Weinzweig says the way to create a self-fulfilling positive cycle in our lives starts with our beliefs.

As part of a series of thought provoking books for personal empowerment and improved work outcomes, the CEO and co-founder of Zingerman's, Ari Weinzweig, is about to release a new book, "The Power of Beliefs at Work."  He will also be speaking early Wednesday morning April 6th as part of the Zing Train speaker series about the ideas he learned after years of research.

Weinzweig spoke with me about the "beliefs of which one approaches a situation."
