At age 16, I founded a breast cancer charity in memory of my late mother - that sparked my passion for social impact, and making a dent in our universe. My campaign has since raised over $500,000 (including $48,000 in under an hour), and spread nationwide. In 2018, I joined insuretech Lemonade to lead Social Impact and ESG. I have distributed over $4M in donations to our 100 partners organizations and our impact has grown 4,232% higher. I was named one of the 100 women to watch by Barclays, and have written for the Telegraph, Guardian and Forbes.

In This Episode: Jim Carter is an SEO expert and co-founder of Carter & Custer, an agency providing growth and content services for purpose-driven brands and organizations of all sizes. As a self-proclaimed “recovering software engineer”, a young Jim had to force himself to cross the terrifying chasm between corporate America and entrepreneurship to get to where he is today. As a business owner, it isn't pure profit that drives him, but the idea of leaving a legacy. In today's conversation, Jim shares why making an impact is his biggest driver as a business owner, coach, and philanthropist. He speaks in particular of his journey to becoming a board member at Pencils of Promise, as well as his thoughts on leading winning organizations. He then talks about the keys to success in building an agency and other service-based businesses. These include the importance of shedding the “solopreneur” mindset and delegating tasks to the right people in your team, knowing your numbers, and ensuring your business has a worthy cause. As always, cheers to your evolution! Key Takeaways:  Scaling any business requires the entrepreneur – who has a tendency to do everything on their own – to embrace true leadership: to learn how to identify strengths and delegate tasks based on those strengths. Another commonly-overlooked factor by the visionary entrepreneur is their business's finances. Knowing your numbers early on will save you a world of headaches later down the line as you grow the company. Specifically get clear on your: revenue, gross profit margin, net profit margin, and cash on hand.  Get familiar with your role as an employer, particularly the legalities (both on the state and federal level) around hiring. This makes growth so much smoother in the long run. Episode Resources Want me to coach you over text? Text me on Tuesdays at 973-358-7836  What is your coaching superpower?

At the time, less than 1% of the global supply of COVID vaccines was going to those living in low-income countries.In recognition of the scale of the world's largest ever vaccination program, Expedia Group committed to donating at least $10 million and enlisted the support of its brands and customers. From August 5 to September 5, 2021, each booking made via one of Expedia Group's mobile apps resulted in a $2 donation by Expedia Group to UNICEF's COVID-19 response. This was the brand's first cross-branded marketing campaign that spanned it's entire family of brands.The partners raised more than $10.5 million, enabled the delivery of 5 million vaccines and achieved more than 15 million impressions on Expedia Group's social media platforms. The CEOs of both organizations were also featured on CNN (which has almost a million prime-time viewers), and for earned media, they saw 516 media hits, which equates to a potential reach of 651 million.Give The World A Shot, as the campaign was aptly named, was crowned the Gold Winner in the Consumer-Activated Corporate-Donation category of our Halo Awards program.

She became deeply concerned about the inequalities and other challenges that existed in the world. Since then, she has endeavored to create real WIN-WIN connections across all cultures, people and organizations to realize a different world.She has been a serial entrepreneur since 2001, starting and running several commercial enterprises all aiming to transform the way businesses are operated today. And by taking a completely new look at the power of giving, she founded B1G1 (Buy1GIVE1) in 2007.Masami's approach to life is very different. She brings a new, almost upside-down strategy to everything she does. And she also radiates it through her writing and speaking. She has authored four books including, ‘JOY - The gift of acceptance, trust and love', ‘GIVING BUSINESS – Creating the maximum impact in the meaning-driven world' and ‘Better Business, Better Life, Better World'.Masami's career has followed her diverse talent and skills having been a teacher, translator, natural food chef (and a farmer!), author and award-winning entrepreneur as well as a mother of two teenage children. She is a two-time TEDx speaker and frequently invited to international events, podcasts and interviews.About B1G1B1G1 (Buy1GIVE1) is a global giving movement that helps businesses give back easily in meaningful ways. Imagine a coffee shop giving life-saving water for every coffee they sell, or an accounting firm educating a child in need for every client they create.Imagine a world where every transaction gives back and makes a difference.Since 2007, B1G1 has worked with more than 3,000 businesses from all industries around the world, creating over 270 million giving impacts.Powered by: ReFi Jobs - ReFi jobs curates the best new regenerative finance jobs at leading companies and startups - Learn more---> Check out the Causeartist Partners here.---> Subscribe to the Causeartist Newsletter here.Listen to more Causeartist podcast shows hereFollow Grant on Twitter and LinkedInFollow Causeartist on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram

'It's not just something that we put on our website': Prose's vp of social impact Helen Nwosu on keeping a scaling company ethical

Prose is a hair care company in growth mode, but it's also laser-focused on remaining a responsible brand. One of the people behind this push is Helen Nwosu, the company's vp of social impact. On this week's episode of the Modern Retail Podcast, Nwosu spoke about how she juggles the needs of a scaling brand while maintaining Prose's core values -- which include being transparent about its sustainability efforts, providing a safe and equitable workplace and making its products accessible to more people around the world. "My role is really tied to the fact that my founders... all wanted to have social impact and business as a source for good clearly embedded in the business from the get-go," Nwosu said. That doesn't mean that Prose, which was founded in 2017, isn't riding a rocket ship, business-wise. The company, which sells custom hair products, has seen revenue grow 3x for three years in a row. It brought in $80 million of revenue in 2021. According to Nwosu, who has spent her career working at the intersection of social impact and business at companies like Louis Vuitton, the way to keep a company honest is to work beyond a marketing lens. For example, Prose has been a certified B-corp since 2019 -- which means that company has to prove certain elements of social and environmental performance. What's more, Prose is also a public benefit corporation. "What's interesting is that it makes our public benefit a mandate to our board," said Nwosu. That is, Prose doesn't have to just write nice-sounding marketing copy about why it's acting both sustainably and ethically, but it was to report on all of its initiatives to its board and external organizations. "It's part of our legal charter," she said. "It's not just something that we put on our website." With that, some days she's working on front-facing activation and other days she's poring over technical documents. "It's really technical," Nwosu said, "I do like that aspect of the job because that's where the magic is." Another part, she said, is making sure the entire company is in lockstep with its values -- including how the products are made. For example, all of Prose's manufacturing happens in Brooklyn. "In this day and age, where most manufacturing companies -- specifically for consumer good -- are moving outside of big urban areas, we're allowed to provide really great jobs," Nwosu said. Right now, Nwosu is working on many projects -- including trying to cater to wider swathes of customers as well as keep Prose's many sustainability efforts up to date. For example, the company has sharing resources with other beauty B-corporations, allowing them to "really talk about transportation, logistics and ingredient sourcing." Those, she said, "are probably the three biggest challenges for a company of our size." So far, Prose says, it has reduced its carbon intensity by 67%. "At the end of the day, three times growth means we're making more product [and thus] we're using more of the planet's resources," Nwosu said. "So that has to be something that I mold the company to do mindfully -- let's build each product that we build better. So that's where my focus is really."

“Smoke from indoor cooking fires is the leading cause of death for women and children under age 5 in the developing world.” This episode's scale tale takes us to Guatemala where a local organization resolves to prevent this tragedy. How? That's where Ripple Effect Images comes into play. By leveraging their ecosystem of filmmakers, editors, photographers, donors, and fundraisers, they were able to show and tell a local Guatemalan community's stories about unsafe indoor cooking to scale the solution and its social impact. This resulted in their partner, StoveTeam International, distributing over 8,000 stoves in a short period. As the Executive Director of Ripple Effect Images, Liz Bloomfield recounts the business infrastructure put in place to support this level of scale and explains how storytelling serves as a catalyst for saving lives. She also reveals how her former careers in the British Army and corporate sector prepared her for the work she's doing now as she continues focusing on “making the world a better place” through humanitarian projects.

When Plastic becomes waste, its durability becomes a problem – it takes Plastic 500 to 1000 years to naturally degrade In its natural degradation process, plastic physically fragments to become dangerous micro plastic Human behavior and bad waste management cause up to 8mn tons plastic / yr “leak” into the ocean About GreenhopeGreenhope is a green technology company with two leading brands: Oxium (oxo-biodegradable additive) & Ecoplas (cassava-based biodegradable bioplastic). They actively collaborate with manufacturers, brand owners, non-governmental organizations, local & national governments to create sustainable consumption & production towards a better, greener earth.Thier technology has been widely scrutinized, tested, certified, to ensure trust and credibility. About OxiumOxium is US-patented, oxo-biodegradable additive that speeds up the molecular and chemical degradation of plastic, thus helping to solve the massive accumulation of plastic waste. Oxium's proprietary formula is made of naturally available minerals that are non-toxic, non-heavy metals. Oxium is used as an additive in low dosage towards regular plastic production (does not require separate/special machineries) and has proven to be an effective and every economical solution towards green plastic.About EcoplasEcoplas is cassava-based and biodegradable bioplastic made out of certified fair trade cassava, driving positive combined environmental and social impact.  Ecoplas has received numerous acknowledgment and awards domestically and internationally as one of the most competitive bio-based materials towards next generation/ sustainable green plastic.Powered by: ReFi Jobs - ReFi jobs curates the best new regenerative finance jobs at leading companies and startups - Learn more---> Check out the Causeartist Partners here.---> Subscribe to the Causeartist Newsletter here.Listen to more Causeartist podcast shows hereFollow Grant on Twitter and LinkedInFollow Causeartist on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram
