Join the Conscious Capitalism chapter as Ariana Friedlander guides us through thought provoking conversation.
Business has traditionally been seen as having one sole purpose, to make money. With the rise of social entrepreneurship and Conscious Capitalism we are seeing a shift in the paradigm. And yet, businesses for the greater good are still not the norm. Going against the grain has never been easy, which is why it is important to embrace your inner misfit entrepreneur. Doing so enables you to be discerning as you figure out how to marry serving a purpose and living your values with having a thriving business.
