Socially Aware Entrepreneurs
Starting With Basics
Socially Aware Entrepreneurs are showing up in every aspect of lives today. New ideas in how we do things effectively, without adding to already destructive issues, makes this time we live in very exciting. There is nothing more basic than the Food industry. One simple approach to something as everyday as grocery shopping can make a big difference for our planet and our own health standards.
The following video gives us incentive to think of new, innovative ways that we can be of service to ourselves by being of service to the planet. Think of how much packaging we throw away everyday. We are not only paying for this packaging at the grocery store, but as it becomes garbage, it has to be dealt with in our landfills or other methods.
These two socially aware entrepreneurs are making a difference for their own community by following their hearts and creating their dream. It is so exciting to see all the new innovations that we can create. There truly are solutions and when we focus on an issue together, we can create a synthesis of change.
There are many opportunities in our own community to create co-ops, such as farmer’s markets, community gardens, food banks for the homeless, refuse disposal, plus many other humanitarian or planetary ideas for solutions.
Remember that communities are not only where you live, but groups that share your interests. When we become group members of like-minded individuals, we form a community. Therefore you are a member of multiple communities on this planet. Your school, your neighborhood, your bowling league, and your Wednesday Morning Networking Group can be a real catalyst for change.
Today, we are seeing how outraged people can get regarding particular situations, such as Cecil’s inhumane death. I am also outraged over this situation. I also have issues with dropping bombs and killing innocent people, including children and sometimes their loving pets. Community is when people recognize a problem and find the solutions to fix it together. Usually when we are outraged about something that has happened, it is merely a symptom of a larger problem.
Finding solutions through sharing our thoughts and ideas is how we solve these types of issues.
We see how the two young women in the video are making a difference for their own
vision of change.
I think sometimes some of us come up with really great ideas that we want to implement, but we just don’t know how to begin.. These ideas sometimes get lost in the beginning of their birth, and never get to be experienced purely by our own lack of staying focused or sharing with others.
The entrepreneurs that remain focused on their vision will usually find creative ways to make things happen. A truly conscious socially aware entrepreneur, remains awake to synchronicities. Those unexpected meetings, accidental overheard information or non-planned events just may incorporate hidden opportunities.
When you listen to stories of successful entrepreneurs, many times they will speak of some stange occurances that opened up just the right connection which boosted their new venture to the next level. It is up to us to be willing to say yes to the opportunities that “feel right” within us.
Today I think the definition of Entrepreneur (the noun) could be expanded. Many entrepreneurs are not only changing how business is being done, but creating “brand new” opportunities to get things done. Our creativity is giving us new, more efficient, less wasteful, more abundant and wiser ways of getting things done. We are beginning to act more responsibly than ever before.
With a more socially conscious awareness, the socially aware entrepreneurs are making changes and finding solutions.
One thing that humans have always been good at is creating a new idea. Next time you have that great idea – write it down, look at it, and let your imagination ride along with it for a while. When we unleash the power of our minds, with determination, problems become smaller and smaller.
Being a Texan, I thought I would share this quote with you:
Robert T. Kiyosaki
“I like Texas and Texans. In Texas, everything is bigger. When Texans win, they win big. And when they lose, it’s spectacular.
If you really want to learn the attitude of how to handle risk, losing and failure, go to San Antonio and visit the Alamo. The Alamo is a great story of brave people who chose to fight, knowing there was no hope of success against overwhelming odds. They chose to die instead of surrendering. It’s an inspiring story worthy of study; nonetheless, it’s still a tragic military defeat. They got their butts kicked. A failure if you will. They lost. So how do Texans handle failure? They still shout, “Remember the Alamo!”
That’s why I like Texans so much. They took a great failure and turned it into a tourist destination that makes them millions.
Texans don’t bury their failures. They get inspired by them. They take their failures and turn them into rallying cries. Failure inspires Texans to become winners. But that formula is not just the formula for Texans. It is formula for all winners.”
