Becoming a Social Entrepreneur


Do you want to improve the world but aren’t sure how?

Then join me to explore becoming a social entrepreneur, and answer the vital question of if this is the right path for you!

After almost 15 years of working with social ventures, I’ve put this course together. I believe that most people want to improve the world and make their lives more meaningful but don’t know how or where to begin.

In this course we will:

  1. Discover the rewards and challenges of being a social entrepreneur.
  2. Identify the traits, skills, and values you already have which will empower you to be successful in pursuing your social impact goals.
  3. Evaluate your current opportunities and define specific next steps that you can take to make the world a better place.

Social entrepreneurship isn’t a fit for everyone and there are other ways to improve the world. We’ll explore whether this is a fit for you in this course as I share what I’ve learned through my work with hundreds of social entrepreneurs.

Assignments will guide you through learning what options best fit your personal values and skills and you will learn about options beyond just founding your own organization including volunteering and intrapreneurship.

Discover whether social entrepreneurship is right for you in this workshop style course.
