Entrepreneurship has always been a driving force in societal transformation. And I believe it will be the driving force in the shift towards a better way of doing business.
As entrepreneurs, we are the primary “shareholder” and although we expect to make money from our business, most of us understand that our business is an extension of our values. Therefore we prioritize serving customers, taking care of our employees and making a positive impact in our community, IN ORDER TO make money.
Today, these core entrepreneurial values are now being defined as a form of “conscious business.” Although most of us didn’t start a business to “be a conscious entrepreneur” we did start the business to have the freedom to do work that we love and that is aligned with our values. Many of us also started our companies to make the world better, while making money.
I am frequently asked if growing a conscious business is different from growing a traditional business, and the answer is always – “Yes, very much.”
And that is why I partnered with several other investors to launch ShiftCo – a community dedicated to elevating business and shifting humanity.
Shift/Co will launch 2/20/2020 in Dallas, New York City, and Los Angeles, followed by Miami, Austin, Denver, Buffalo, Santa Fe, Tampa, London and Melbourne, Australia throughout all of next year.
My grandfather, who was my first entrepreneurial mentor, taught me an invaluable lesson about entrepreneurship, which shaped my values, he said, “Profit is the tip your customers give you when you serve them well.”
Here’s a link to our special announcement.
