The state of entrepreneurship is at a very exciting stage in history in terms of having significant impact around the world. More people than ever are pursuing social enterprises or business as mission ventures as a way to fulfill their desire to transform communities, change lives, and leave a positive multi-generational legacy, among many other admirable reasons.
The problem, though, is when people of great compassion lack some non-negotiable essentials to run a profitable business that has a major social impact. Compassion is necessary to run a mission driven business, but it can't make up for lack of a business plan, ineffective business practices, or flawed execution.
So let's take a look at six issues that prevent mission driven businesses from having a major social impact in local communities:
Did you identify any of these areas where you can make some improvements? If yes, I would love to assist you where you need some help. Check out my online business course, 7 Week Startup, which will help you launch a new mission driven business or restart your current one in 60 days or less. We will cover all the issues identified above to ensure you are equipped to run a profitable business and deeply impact the community God called you to reach.
Don't let any of these issues slow you down or stop you from fulfilling your dreams and reaching your destiny. I'll see you in class!
So we're in that quirky week between Christmas and New Year's. Some people are scrambling trying to get things completed. But many people are taking it easy as they ease into 2017. I truly believe how you enter into a new season of life is directly connected to how you leave the previous one.
Believe it or not, now is one of the best times to assess where you have been this year and where you're going next year. If you made any progress forward in 2016 what's most important now is not to stop your momentum. You need to determine what to stop doing, start doing, and keep doing.
One of the things you definitely should keep doing is learning, especially as it relates to your business pursuits.
