The word "altrupreneur" combines altruism and entrepreneur into one word to describe a new type of social entrepreneur whose aim is to reach financial freedom so that they commit themselves to public interest, consumer advocacy, personal development, and social justice causes. The book, Altrupreneur, nearing completion by Alex Lavidge, showcases self-made millionaires and those who have inherited wealth between the ages of 18 to 40 that live a simple lifestyle. Each day they're reducing their ecological footprint and are consciously building a sustainable future in a specific, measurable way. We can all follow in their footsteps if we want to. These altrupreneurs are redefining the American Dream. It's no longer about the big house and material status symbols. Instead, wealth is measured by the free time that exists to focus on "triple-bottom line" endeavors that aim to be profitable, of benefit to the community, and protect the environment. For each meeting we study and discuss topics in the categories of life design, entrepreneurship, and social responsibility. We also incorporate social networking events into our calendar. Hope you can join us!
