Mitchell first ventured into social impact, values-based business as a teenager, producing benefit rock and jazz concerts in Westport, CT. where he grew up.

His last concert was for a Presidential candidate whose platform was world peace. This and the previous concerts were so successful that when he went into the field of psychology, he stayed active as an entrepreneur, especially in promoting wellness & green tech, products and services designed to make positive impacts on health and environment.

He learned the principle then as a teenager that one can do well by doing good, and his work has been guided by this. He is a systems/holistic thinker.

Relationships and communications, whether in business or at home, are core and focus of Mitchell’s work as a coach, media host & entrepreneur.

Mitchell has facilitated groups in Stress Reduction, conflict resolution and communication nationally and internationally. He has taught Qi-Gong, Meditation and Stress Management/Biofeedback at retreats across the U.S., the Caribbean and Mexico.

In all of A Better World’s endeavors, it promotes the guiding Green Party’s idea of People & Planet before Profit--that real prosperity comes from sustainable service.

Mitchell is President of the (ECOSOC) NGO, the Institute of Global Education, which oversaw the building of schools in India and Nepal. Currently, it is in the process of building an online presence for Global Education largely around regenerative agriculture, which in itself resolves Food and Water Security, peace, and building local economies.

He is on the Board of FIONS (Friends of the Institute of Noetic Sciences), CarePoint, a medical diagnostic co., and the Source of Synergy Foundation.

Mitchell is on the Advisory Boards of Ethical Markets, All-Faiths Seminary, World Water Rescue Foundation and Emerald City (a green city project).
