FINANCIAL HEALTH with Christine Rico, Founder of CFO on Speed Dial
"My whole premise is that if you don't have a stable financial base, then you can't very fair in really delivering the social impacts that you want. ... The other thread that runs through my work is the thread of storytelling. Everybody now understand the power of story. ... The stories are often visual, and definitley verbal, but if you're running a business, the other part of the story is the numbers. If you can't look at the numbers and have them tell you a story, you're missing part of the narrative."
AUTHENTICITY with Kari Enge, Founder and Editor of Rank & File Magazine
"Purpose-driven entrepreneurs see good in the world and want good for the world. That means we want good for the people who inhabit it. For the purpose-driven entrepreneur: people intrinsically matter."
COMMUNITY with Tara Byrne, Founder of Under 30 Changemakers
"You can't steer a parked car. You just have to start and just go for it, no matter where you are, no matter with what you have. It's easy to think that you don't have the resources already available to you. But you do. If you're on here, you have the internet. You have an ability to literally reach out to anyone in the world and ask for their help or their support. You have an ability to sell almost anything you can think of. The limitations, and why we are personally a mental support group, is because it's getting over yourself. We put up so many obstacles to what we can and cannot do, and it's ultimately just going for it and seeing how it works out. Because no matter what you can dream up, you can achieve."
MARKETING STRATEGIES with Mike Volkin, Founder of 800lb Marketing
"I see being an entrepreneur as an art form. Like a painter approaches a canvas. One of the things I do differently is approach problems and growth strategies differently. I like to look at a whole 360 degree view of a company. A lot of clients come to me and they say 'ok I have this product, I want to market it'. The first thing I look for is other opportunities to #1 help them grow that product better, but #2 help them cross-sell and up-sell given the 360 view of what they need to do. That's the art form. There's no set process. Every company is unique; everyone is different."
IMPACT/REVENUES BALANCE with Ozzy Lang, Co-Founder of Green Cup
"It costs us a lot more to go with compostable cups and to offer them at the same price if not lower than a regular cup to get into these different environments. We are losing money on that. But at the end of the day, that's the mission behind this, to reduce waste. To have a good social business you need to be profitable and keep pushing forward but the reason you started your business is to provide that social gain."
PROJECT MANAGEMENT with Luisa Saavedra, Founder of The Project SME
"A common mistake is I see is 'to-do lists on fire'. A project is an articulated goal with a start and a stop. It helps you strategize about what exactly your goal is, and the activity that you have to be doing to reach that goal, and how long you want to spend time on it... THAT is what gets you from A to B."
INSPIRATION with Beth Palm, Founder of BAM Essentials and Social Good Impact
"I've been reading a lot about Buddhism and studying that philosophy. I think my calling is in relieving suffering. Whether thats relieving suffering of humans, or the planet, or other form of suffering. We are all suffering in some way. And so the more that I can do to relieve that suffering - that's what gets me out of bed in the morning."
