I’m confident that you’re somewhat like me in that you feel pain when you see other people suffer. When you see injustice, extreme poverty, you feel a little sad. But you also know you want to make a difference and some how make your mark in the causes that you feel passionate about. Today I wanted to show you a social business model that I use to impact as many lives as I can, without actually having to deliver on it. This is a highly leveraged way to make a difference and leave your legacy. You see one of the biggest problems I see new clients and course participants come to me with is the desire to make a big difference but a fear of being that visible to millions of people. They think, like I use to, that being that visible means you loose your anonymity or freedom. So they hold themselves back from really stepping up to make that big huge difference. They play small with small numbers when they know they were destined to impact hundreds of thousands, even millions of lives. Leveraging Your Impact If you follow me you know I have a Purpose To Profit…

3 Steps To Create A Social Business Enterprise That Fulfils Your Purpose

A New Social Business Model For A New Era There’s a positively infectious Global Epidemic among successful entrepreneurs that is adding depth to the Social Business Enterprise Grass Roots Movement changing our world. Because I mentor mature entrepreneurs around the world, I’m seeing and reading about this intense, almost urgent desire of these entrepreneurs wanting to give more back and contribute to solving some of the world’s largest problems. They’re asking, what am I really here to do?, and how can I make a bigger impact on a global scale? This idea of using Entrepreneurial acumen to solve world problems has been coined as the phrase “Entrepreneurial Activism.” But none of us are getting any older, and if you’re like I was 11 years ago, the thought of starting a new social business enterprise makes your stomach turn. “Do you really have to build from the ground up again, right?” Then there’s the concern about whether you can make enough money to keep the cogs moving that you’ve already built, and how on earth do you monetize so you get paid to solve a world problem without becoming a politician? For some entrepreneurs there’s what’s known as the “Christ Complex”…

Monetize Your Mission For World Change

3 Success Factors For A Thriving Social Business Has it ever occurred to you that the one thing you’d like most to change in the world, might actually be part of your mission? I discovered a great many things that year. The least of which was that when we get that calling into higher world service, there are always clues as to what that service is and how to monetise it. 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.In the infamous year of 2012 I took an unofficial survey of over 1,000 clients who came to me wanting to build a social business that would leave a legacy. Most of them were successful, but they had a gnawing feeling inside that there was a bigger mission looming. They just couldn’t put their finger on what that was for themselves. Which is why they came to me. To my great and grateful surprise, I also discovered that each of us has a Mission Blueprint that outlines the best path for us to tap into the Universal Ocean of Abundance by…

The Changemakers Challenge of Resistance To Change & Sabotage

By | Blog, Changemakers Guide, Changemakers Task Force, Personal Development, Social Innovation | No Comments

How To Green Light Your Mission For World Change Despite Saboteurs Researching my new book I was struck by how many fantastic social enterprises, social innovation projects and ecopreneurial innovations are in start-up. I also became aware of how many great campaigns for missions for change are being held back, handicaped, and halted because of the number #1 problem Changemakers face – Resistance to Change and the saboteurs that resistance brings. One of the biggest challenges I see Changemakers having to face, is this challenge of sabotage. Whether that sabotage is in the form of self defeating thoughts, beliefs and behaviour; naysayers or trolls stopping you from building support; apathetic masses not adopting your vision; unconscious leaders and incompetent decision makers creating policies that outright stop your mission in its tracks; self invested people and anti-competitive corporations making it difficult to get forward momentum; to out right sabotaging behaviours of teams members and opposing forces… I believe sabotage is our greatest challenge as Changemakers.  Sabotage is something we need to learn how to address and conquer, if we are to succeed. So I wanted to share with you the number one powerful resource you MUST use to overcome internal and external…

How To Monetize Your Mission For World Change

By | Blog, Changemakers Task Force, Finding your life purpose, Social Entrepreneurship | No Comments

If you’re someone who wants to see the world change into a more positive place where all prosper, and you’d like to be working toward that, rather than joylessly working for money just to pay bills, you’re certainly not alone. This desire has given rise to Social Entrepreneurship and a whole new way of doing business for good and social change. Escalating unsolved problems in the world have corresponded with a huge growth in people wanting to have greater meaning in their working life and seeking to find their purpose, so they can make a bigger difference. But the age old problem of having to get bills paid often keeps people stuck in working jobs or being in businesses they don’t like, to get those bills paid. They fear the leap needed to be on the path of making more money by making a bigger difference will leave them in financial struggle. Now if that call to make a difference and live true to your purpose doesn’t get answered, life becomes flat and we seek passion in often addictive behaviours to compensate – Like drinking copious cups of tea 🙂 to get some kind of exciting happening in our day. As…
