Are you into Social Entrepreneurship, Here Is Some Advice for You?
For every enterprise, there is always a desire to succeed. This does not leave out those in social entrepreneurship whose definition of success is to make the world a better place while making a living out of it.
However, for one to succeed in social entrepreneurship or rather in any other business, it is important for one to be aware of their challenges and how to handle them. Well, how best can one go about this than to receive advice from those who have walked the same path before us? It is for this reason we share some of the best advice from some social entrepreneurs who are doing very well in the area, right below:
- According to Avocado Green Mattress, co-founder and CMO, Mark Abrials, the best thing is to stick to your mission and core values at all costs. For them, it has been very important for them to remain transparent even at difficult times. After all, this has been the aspiration for their brand advocates.
- For Diane van Zwanenberg, the founder of Coconut Matter, her best advice is going for an issue that closes to one’s heart. This way, your heart will always give you the necessary strength when things get too thick.
- According to Thela’s founder, Diti Kotecha, there is no success in social entrepreneurship without persistence. While, talent, intelligence, a good idea, and good intentions matter, not giving up matters most.
- The most important thing for Julie Weig, the co-founder of Ruby Cup, is to kickstart that idea with that imperfect start-up plan. Once started, reach out to people in the same field as you. People are willing to give advice and help, even the seemingly unreachable. Again, Julie believes that for one to make an impactful social change, money must be involved, thus the need to invest heavily in the business part of your idea.
