Walking through an airport recently, I saw the latest edition of Inc. Magazine with the cover story named “Six Ways to Save the World: A Practical Guide to Social Entrepreneurship.”
Intrigued by the title, I bought the magazine and immediately began reading an article entitled, “Start a company. Change the world.”
Before I even began reading the article, I realized that this was more than just a title of a story; this was a manifestation of a personal dream of mine.
The idea that we could positively change the world by starting a business.
For some of us, it’s second nature to venture into the mysterious world of business.For others, we’ve been hard-wired into fearing and even loathing, anything related to business.
For me, I’ve come to believe that if your values and intentions are to help better yourself and the broader society, than any business venture can truly uplift our world.
So with a strong passion to reinvent charitable giving, some friends and I have started Shop. Share. Love!, an online store that sells the latest designer fashions at affordable prices with proceeds of every purchase benefiting a non-profit that you choose.
