In 2006, Shawn Askinosie left a successful career as a criminal defense lawyer to start a bean-to-bar chocolate factory and never looked back.

His company, Askinosie Chocolate, was recently named by Forbes “One of the 25 Best Small Companies in America.”

So far the company has provided over a million school lunches to malnourished children in Tanzania and the Philippines, without any donations.

Founded at the forefront of the American craft chocolate revolution and regarded by many as a vanguard in the industry.

Shawn was named by O, The Oprah Magazine “One of 15 Guys Who Are Saving the World.” He's received two honorary doctorates and given a popular TEDx.

Shawn’s book, co-written with his daughter Lawren, published by Penguin Random House titled “Meaningful Work: The Quest To Do Great Business, Find Your Calling, and Feed Your Soul” is an Amazon #1 bestseller.

He is a Family Brother at Assumption Abbey, a Trappist monastery near Ava, Missouri, and the co-founder of Lost & Found, a grief center now in its 20th year serving children and families in Southwest Missouri.
