Introduction to Social Entrepreneurship

Intro to Social Entrepreneurship

60-Minute Audio Workshop on CD or MP3
with C.J. Hayden, MCC, CPCC

Social entrepreneurship is a model that has been gaining momentum in recent years as an answer to social problems on a global scale and scarce resources to address them. Social entrepreneurs apply business principles and leadership skills to address social issues. They build mission-driven businesses aimed at solving social problems, direct their professional skills and training toward helping people in need, or use their entrepreneurial skills to found nonprofits that use innovative business models.

If you feel called to make more of a difference in the world and want to make a living while doing it, this program is for you.
