For most entrepreneurs business is all about ebb and flow. As I look back and consider my consulting clients for the past six months, I realize that among the companies that seek out my expertise, social entrepreneurs are becoming more and more numerous. The differences between my corporate and my social entrepreneur clients are large and refreshing. Indeed, social entrepreneurs tend to instinctively know and apply what is so difficult for my corporate clients to assimilate.
Social entrepreneurs are normally young people who aren’t bogged down by rules and business acumen. They operate from the heart and follow their intuition. They’re passionate about what they do. Most of them have spent several years in the country that interests them either as backpack travelers, Peace Corps volunteers, or missionaries. Most of them speak the language of the region that interests them and have a network of people they can rely on in-country to start their venture.
