I have my ear to the ground these days when it comes to what classifications are out there in regards to companies that exist for more than making a profit… Someone wisely phrased it “Not just for profit”.
One of the newest concepts to cross grace my search engine is what’s called the B Corp. It stands for Benefit Corporation and the best understanding I have to date about it is that it’s like a stamp of approval not much different than the Better Business Bureau for integrity in operations. http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2012/02/02/canada-b-corps-benefit-corporations_n_1251383.html
As I educate myself about what is available it gives me a whole new network of relationships and at the end of the day, it really is who you know not always what you know.
I often encourage people to follow their dreams, and in these last few years I feel like I’ve finally taken the plunge on following mine.
When we’re a little further down the road of development I might even write a book about it… I love the thought of inspiring people like yourself and giving hope that you too can live your dreams.
