It’s the season of giving!
As conscious entrepreneurs, we have a deep desire to make a positive impact on the planet. We’re passionate, creative, and our products and services are truly amazing. Because business requires an enormous amount of time, focus and finances, it can often leave us feeling pulled between doing good in the world and making money.
Let’s face it – if we don’t have the income to take care of our families, then we can’t make the impact that we were destined to make in this world.
In this week’s video, I’m going to give you 4 things to consider when it comes to balancing doing good and making money.
How committed are you to your dreams? How passionate are you about what you’re doing? When things get tough, this bigger picture will remind you to stay the course.
Are you charging enough? I often see people who want to make a difference just give their products and services away for free. You’ll never be able to take care of yourself, your family – let alone the world – without financial stability.
Are you telling your community what cause you support? Social entrepreneurship is all about using business tools for good. Consumers are making buying decisions with brands that make a difference. Tell people about the cause you contribute to so they can understand where their support is going.
Are you setting an example? Show your audience how you make a difference. Raise awareness by posting photos of you in action, along with information about the cause and why you’ve chosen to support it.
We want to hear from you! Are you a social entrepreneur? What are your favorite causes to give back to? Post your comments below.
Until next time,
Dream it. Live it. BE it!
