About Bert Jacobs

Bert is the co-founder of the $150 million lifestyle brand Life is Good.

Absolutely outstanding, standing ovation was the least we could do to thank him! His passion and zest for life while telling his story is inspiring and has a unique universal message that caters to all!


In an auditorium filled with over 400 high school students, adults, and educators from across the US, Bert opened our hearts with his inspiring stories. His message of optimism and the power of kindness evoked a sense excitement, inspiration, and indeed bravery. We were honored to have partnered with Life is Good for the Emotion Revolution Summit and there is no doubt that his message moved everyone in the audience.

He made us laugh, cry, and everything in between he was fun, approachable and I especially appreciated his interest in our culture and company. He is truly one of a kind.
