Description

We're entrepreneurs who care.

We're building wildly profitable companies that ARE ALSO wildly impactful.

We've got a social impact that we care deeply about and we're not afraid to bake that impact into our businesses.

You might call yourself things like: social impact entrepreneur, purposeful entrepreneur, or just an entrepreneur who gives a damn.

Companies like Warby Parker, TOMS Shoes, and LSTN Headphones are our role models.

So, if you are making a dollar AND a difference with your business (or if you want to) this podcast is the place where you can figure out how to do it. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dollaranddifference/support

It's the thing almost all of us cringe at...SELLING. We say to ourselves, can't we just hire someone to do it? Or can't we just partner with a marketing guru to make it all go away?  The most honest answer to these questions is NO. The simple fact is that if you want to make it in social impact entrepreneurship it WILL mean selling yourself and the impact you're making. So, Josh made this podcast to help you make this easy as pie. P.S. Huge thanks to www.antonfrans.com for sponsoring the show - let's show em' some love by checking out their high quality shades that are revolutionizing sunglasses AND giving back to a cause you choose.  --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dollaranddifference/support

Jump on this episode where Josh boils down 'Lean Startup' tactics for social good. Basically, this means he'll show you some proven tactics for launching with less time and money than you thought you needed ;) This episode and this entire mini-series are sponsored by a social impact business called Live the Give. Their founder Najat wanted a clothing company that was socially conscious by nature AND gave back to children's education around the world.  Livethegive.org does this beautifully by offering a stylish range of clothes that ALL come from WRAP certified providers (basically, WRAP certification is like 'certified organic' of the clothing space - you know anything that's WRAP certified comes from places that offer fair and safe conditions for their communities).  So, give a special thanks to Najat and Live the Give for sponsoring our show by checking out what they have at ww --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dollaranddifference/support
