I now have a Twitter as well. Follow Me!!!
I have decided to pursue Social Entrepreneurship as an alternative route. This seems like a really good option given that I have zero capital to invest (but time, energy and ideas aplenty) as well as a strong desire to help others. I can hopefully benefit my local community and pick up valuable management/PR skills along the way.
I have already sent out several emails and compiled a list of phone numbers. The most exciting thing so far has been receiving a reply from Ernst & Young. I obviously can’t disclose the content of the email without their permission; but I was quite impressed that they actually replied in a positive/constructive way. Lots of big companies like to put things on their websites about social entrepreneurship, but few of the others I contacted felt the need to respond to a small organisation like the one I am building. So thumbs-up to Ernst & Young for their help (I should mention I have never worked with/had any contact with them before this).
I will post more about the exact nature of my project [Photo’s included] this weekend!!! In keeping with the blogs title I will not be accepting any money from outside sources. I am determined to build the organisation on non-monetary donations from individuals and companies (such as volunteering space, time or ideas).
Over and Out,
I’ve started a Zero Capital account on Facebook (see link). I will start a Twitter and Instagram soon.
I’m generally not a fan of the SMH, but this article gives some good examples of business ideas that were successfully transferred from the U.S. (and other countries) to Australia. I’ll certainly be keeping my eye out for exciting new ventures next time I go overseas!
I really enjoyed the above article from business week. Though hopefully I can buck the trend!!!
I have always been interested in entrepreneurship. Despite being young and having zero capital in terms of both business experience and finance I have decided to go out and do something about both. I don’t know what “something” means just yet, there simply comes a time when one has to take action and start building momentum. For me that time is now!!!
