Portland Man Makes Spreading Good News Around the World His Business
Tom McGowan started All Things Good Co to try and put a little positivity into the world.
Tom, a Portland native, while in college decided that it was time there was a social platform that focused on the positive with so much negativity. He started All Things Good Co. Their mission is pretty simple: to offset the constant bad news with positivity. They have over 200k followers on their Instagram and their podcast gains more listeners every hour.
If covid taught us anything it's that the world can be scary. It's plenty negative, but a smile is just as infectious as a frown and it makes you feel better! People really respond with animal stories. Even Bob Barker posted a pic!
Tom has some big plans for All Good Things Co. He would like to branch out into TV and maybe movies too! But it wasn't an easy start. He was told by pretty much everyone that having a business model that was based on 'good news' was never going to work and that most people wouldn't be interested.
Last year during the worst of the pandemic, Tom's All Things Good Instagram grew over 500%! Because people were yearning for something good amongst the constant day in day out bad news.
All Things Good has a simple mission. Happiness.
