“This book gives its reader permission to be creative, innovative, and wholly authentic in how they start, grow and scale a business true to their values.” – Patty Aubery, president of the Canfield Group, cofounder of Chicken Soup for the Soul, and bestselling author of Permission Granted.
Gathering Around the Table: A Story of Purpose-Driven Change through Business will take readers through the compelling journey of how Kari Warberg Block instinctively figured out what the entire pest control industry missed when she developed her first all-natural pest deterrent at her kitchen table, with nothing more than a 99cent package of garden seeds and a dream. As a mom living on food stamps, Kari was an unlikely disruptor, but with her tenacity, grit and passion, she challenged the male-dominated pest control industry that, by its very nature, is about killing and poisons.
Through her vibrant storytelling, Kari highlights and teaches readers how to access the dormant leader within them, sharing her wisdom on how she built EarthKind into a 7 figure global brand from nothing and against all odds. From losing her land to almost losing her life, Kari details how her obstacles became about finding clarity around her purpose, her integrity and how far she was willing to go to make a difference in a world that was resistant to change.
“Determination. Grit. Kari's story is living proof that if you set your mind to something, you CAN make it happen. We all have doubts and doubters. It's about moving forward and making it all happen. Read this book” - Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO of Hint, Inc., and author of Undaunted: Overcoming Doubts and Doubters.
“The idea for writing this book came to me right after presenting to a group of students about how to start off as an entrepreneur and practice conscious leadership at my alma mater, University of Mary. Suddenly, a new purpose was born: to inspire pathways for how to build a new sustainable economy, transform a category, and build profitable businesses around a world that works in harmony with nature for young entrepreneurs, it also exposed to me the greater need to gather around the table and invent new ways to address environmental, social, and economic crises of today, and so, Gathering Around the Table was born,” comments Kari Warberg Block, “Each chapter shows the importance of value-based decision making as the foundation of conscious leadership, and demonstrates how navigating obstacles from a place of personal beliefs and strong morals can lead to businesses, and lives, that are filled with prosperous financial growth, greater social impact, and deep personal fulfillment. My desire is for this book to propel any young or unconventional entrepreneur, like I was, to follow their purpose and make their business dreams into a reality, and I wanted to release it on International Day for Achievers, as it is a day that provides a sense of purpose to those pursuing worthy causes. This book is for them!”

About Kari Warberg Block: Author/CEO & Founder of EarthKind:
An unlikely disruptor, Kari Warberg Block challenged an industry that by its very nature is toxic. As the Founder & CEO of EarthKind®, and new author of Gathering Around the Table: A Story of Purpose-Driven Change Through Business, Kari discovered that 98% of pest control solutions sold were poison & kill methods – so she set out to invent a better solution: plant-based pest control powered by nature. Kari was the first to develop, manufacture, and commercialize poison-free rodent and insect repellents for farm and home use, with a mission to build a purpose-led company to create change through business. Her efforts have helped decrease consumer reliance on poison & kill-based methods from 98% to 88% nationwide. Once a mom on food stamps, Kari started EarthKind® with nothing more than a package of garden seeds and a vision and has built it into the 7 figure company it is today.
