Social Entrepreneurs have embraced this heart centered solution economy idea wholeheartedly. The recent rise of social entrepreneurship is seeing entrepreneurs going into business from a heart based desire to make a big difference and address some of the world’s toughest problems using a triple bottom line value system – People, Planet, Prosperity. However, just because a business is set up for social or planetary good doesn’t mean it escapes the same statistics of failure as traditional business models. The Social Entrepreneur has complex criteria that need to be met in order to consider themselves successful.

AND it seams that each of us contributes to solving a problem in the world through the ripple effect, regardless of the size of the mission simvastatin generic name.

Creating Your Winning Mission Strategy This past decade (centuries actually) has seen many a social mission strategy for world change fail miserably. In Florida, a few years back, laws were passed to make it illegal to feed the homeless.

Your Life Path Plan is telling the Creative Universe and your Subconscious Mind – WHAT YOU STAND FOR! I’m big on having a Life Path Plan because it puts me (aligned to my Soul’s Purpose) in the drivers seat and in partnership with my Source, to steer my life in the best direction.
