Episode Info

Episode Info:

Mike Schubert and his friends may have stumbled upon the idea of buying remote islands in Indonesia but the route they took to make it happen was anything but random. The values of intentionality and community prevailed even when there was uncertainty about reaching their bottom line. Protecting these values in the face of difficulty is what has caused the creation of such a unique business. 

Telunas Resorts has turned employees into leaders, consumers into volunteers, and businessmen into agents of change.

This was such an inspiring interview with Michael! I'm so excited to share with you all that we discussed. Since Michael co-founded these luxury resorts over 15 years ago, he draws from a significant amount of history and valuable lessons learned, and we talked about:  

  • Why he and his business partners took the slow road to set up their resorts
  • The surprising amount of capital it took despite their best calculations
  • How they struggled to hit the bottom line in order to maintain their their values
  • The process of turning local fishing villagers into five star resort employees
  • The shocking amount of volunteer hours they get from consumers
  • The ways they have expanded, and the opportunities to continue to improve
