At just thirty years old, Sam Polk was a senior trader for one of the biggest hedge funds on Wall Street, on the verge of making it to the very top. When he was offered an annual bonus of $3.75 million, he grew angry because it was not enough. In that moment he knew he had lost himself in his obsessive pursuit of money. And he had come to loathe the culture-the shallowness, the sexism, the crude machismo-and Wall Street's use of wealth as the sole measure of a person's worth. He decided to walk away from it all.
In 2014 his front page article for New York Times Sunday Review about wealth addicition instantly went viral.
his unflinching memoir about coming of age on Wall Street, fighting to overcome the ghosts of his past-and the radical new way he now defines success.
Since then Sam became the
Co-Founder & CEO of
Everytable, with a mission to make good food available to everyone. When you eat at Everytable, you're paying less and bringing better food to more communities.
He's also the Founder and Executive Director of
GroceryShips, with a mission to i
mprove long-term health and wellness in low-income communities by creating a network of educational support groups
and enhancing access to healthy, unprocessed foods
