Liz Eddy has always been passionate about building products and businesses that can tangibly help others. At 15 she created her first company that was focused on educating others about dating abuse and domestic violence, she also led communications from inception for the nation's first free, 24/7 crisis support line, Crisis Text Line, and most recently is the co-founder and CEO of Lantern, a single source platform that provides step-by-step guidance for navigating life before and after death.   Lantern was born from personal experience. Liz lost her dad at a young age and was the caretaker for her Grandmother who passed away more recently. In the midst of navigating grief, Liz had to handle the logistics of what you do when someone you love passes away, and found there was no singular place to find the answers she needed.   In our conversation we discuss: Why being aware of our own mortality can actually make us happier people Her journey through entrepreneurship and how many different ideas she had before finally finding the right one The difficulty of raising venture capital as a woman and why women are judged on progress while men are judged on promise And why having healthy, happy, and cared for employees is of the utmost importance to Liz and her team   Liz isn't shy about having conversations with taboo topics that the rest of society hides away from and her ability to do so has produced tangible results for people when navigating some of the most difficult moments of their lives.   Connect with Liz: https://www.lantern.co/ https://www.instagram.com/followlantern/?hl=en   Our intro theme song is “Pico & Westwood” by Esbie Fonte.

'A coming of age story about how impossibility can become a possibility through human spirit and will.'  By the time Curtis Carmichael was 11, ten people he knew died. He grew up in a Block where parents worked several jobs to survive, everyone was profiled, and crime seemed to be the only path to prosperity. Schools were at best a parking lot where students were yelled at by teachers who said they have no value. As Curtis says: 'In real life, you're seven, but where I grew up, in Block years, you're 21.' Curtis Carmichael plans to break the cycle of poverty in marginalized communities by helping kids thrive, not just survive. . Curtis is the founder of Source Code Academy which will be Canada's first culture-focused innovation and entrepreneurship academy for Black, Indigenous and low-income children in communities like his. His intent is to tap into the ingrained entrepreneurship that exists within communities that have to get creative to survive and bridge the educational gap and digital divide. Their intent is: No Child Left Behind. His thinking and passion will inspire you, and I bet that you will vote for this exceptional young man one day.  Mark Beckles, Vice President of Social Impact and Innovation at RBC joins the show to talk about Future Launch, and other initiatives RBC is doing to support youth across Canada.

During this episode Zubaidah and I tackle the conversation around Body positivity and how to use your voice, your business and/or your platform for Social Impact. I'm so excited for this season we have Jam packed episodes in the upcoming weeks! Zubaidah Abdul-Hakim is the CEO & Creative Director of Styled By Zubaidah, a Luxury Modest Clothing line for Plus Size Women. Zubaidah started Styled by Zubaidah in 2013 after realizing it was nearly impossible to find clothing that fit her body, personality and religious beliefs. There was a huge void in the fashion industry when it pertained to creating fashionable garments for the Plus Size modest woman. At the time no one catered to her specific needs and because of that Zubaidah made it her mission to create beautiful designs that the Modest Plus Size woman would enjoy wearing. I consider Styled By Zubaidah to be a Social Impact Biz. Social Impact is a significant, positive change that addresses a pressing social challenge. People who are considered Plus Size, or Curvy or othered in some shape or form experience social and emotional effects and various forms of dicrimination, lower wages, lower quality of life and susceptible to depression and low self esteem.

I have another one of those conversations to share with you today, but this one is about scaling your social impact. When we talk about wanting cash, influence, and autonomy, I think that influence really speaks to the difference we make in the world. It's about walking in your truth and your purpose, and really tuning inward to hear what that could be. Keep reading My guest today did just that and now she is having a tremendous influence on her cause. Raby Gueye is the founder of a non-profit organization called Teach for Senegal. She is a 2021 recipient of Forbes' Top 30 Under 30 honor, and she is scaling social impact at an incredible level through her leadership and entrepreneurship.

The big question employers everywhere, from small size mom-and-pop shops to global enterprises, are struggling with is “how do we attract and keep talented workers?” There are a lot of different and important factors, such as wages, having safe COVID policies, remote work, culture, but one thing very few people are talking about is even in such a serious time, making the effort to make a workplace fun. Kevin Werbach is an Associate Professor and Chairperson of Legal studies and Business Ethics at The Wharton University of Pennsylvania. His recent book, “For the Win: The Power of Gamification and Game Thinking in Business, Education, Government, and Social Impact,” illustrates the ways in which concepts in video games can be utilized to find, and retain the best level of talent for your business. Kevin honed the practices in his book during his tenure as the FCC Review Co-Lead under the Obama administration and as a consultant for the CIA and World Bank, where he developed training programs based on his gamification practices. Even in these very “serious” industries, Kevin used games, and more importantly, the idea of fun to engage, motivate, and build trust and community within his teams, something that employers everywhere right now are struggling to do during The Great Resignation, so with that...let's bring it in!

And of course, Brant paints a beautiful picture of how he hopes to see the world in 10 years.Brant's key lessons and quotes from this episode were:“I didn't want to do what other people wanted me to do. I wanted to do what I thought was best, so that sort of mindset kind of belongs more in a startup environment than it does in traditional companies.” (5:18)“People are inspired by, whether they realize it or not, they're inspired by needs that they see out in the world that they want solved.” (8:11)“If you're asking for investment or you're talking about startup investment, you don't say, ‘You're investing in the business,' or, ‘You're investing in me, the founder.' You're investing in the mission.” (17:18)“Foundations and people that are giving money to the foundations need to demand the impact reports, and they need to demand a higher impact for their dollar spent, and maybe that starts creating the culture of improving the practices.” (28:40)“As long as we have choices as consumers, there's pressure on the companies to actually do the right thing… I do think that individuals actually have more power than they think, both as shareholders and as consumers.” (33:22)In this episode, we also talked about:The beginning of Brant's career (2:13)Changes that need to happen in the startup ecosystem (7:43)Brant's advice to entrepreneurs and startup founders (16:48)Common mistakes made my impact entrepreneurs (23:24)How charities and governments could learn from entrepreneurs (27:14)How digital transformation can turn corporations into positively impactful businesses (31:21)Brant Cooper's view of the world in 10 years (37:42)Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/impacthustlers)

In episode 120 of the Disruptors for GOOD podcast I speak with Olowo-n'djo Tchala, Founder and CEO of Alaffia on cultivating beauty, equality, and empowerment in West Africa and around the globe through personal care products.Olowo-n'djo Tchala, founder and CEO of Alaffia, was born and raised in the village of Kaboli, Togo. Growing up and working to support his family, he witnessed firsthand the injustices and inequalities many of the women in his village faced daily. After moving to the United States and going to University, he felt the responsibility to fight the injustices that existed in West Africa.In 1996, Tchala met his partner Prairie Rose Hyde, who was invited to his village as an environmental volunteer in the Peace Corp. Inspired by a shared calling to do right by the world, Alaffia, a social enterprise, was born. With an understanding of the value of indigenous West African resources and sustainable business ideologies, the two launched Alaffia's first shea butter collective in 2003 and in 2004 established the Alaffia headquarters in Olympia, Washington.For the last nearly 20 years, Tchala's green and fair trade organization has created sustainable programs in West Africa that have improved the lives of over 250,000 individuals. Proceeds from the sale of Alaffia's beauty and personal care products are returned to communities in Africa, such as those in Togo and Ghana, to fund their multiple empowerment programs including Maternal Care, Reforestation, Regenerative Agriculture, Eyeglass, Bicycle and in 2021 Female Genital Mutilation Eradication.Since inception, they have built 16 schools, planted over 99,000 trees, provided more than 10,000 bicycles and 30,000 eyeglasses, donated school supplies to more than 37,000 students, and funded over 6,500 births. How does it work? Women's cooperatives in West Africa handcraft indigenous ingredients, such as unrefined shea butter and African black soap, using traditional African methods. Products are then finished at Alaffia's U.S. headquarters in Olympia, Washington. Proceeds from the sale of their personal care products are returned to communities in Africa, such as those in Togo and Ghana, to fund their community programs.Today, Alaffia is available in Whole Foods nationwide and continues to redefine the natural products industry through its values of Beauty, Equality and Empowerment, fair trade, and safe, efficacious hair, face and body care.Listen to more Causeartist podcasts hereHuge thanks to our Causeartist Partners - Check them out hereCheck out:ImpactInvestor.io - Discover impact investors from around the world.Podcast Made with TransistorPodcast cover design Made with CanvaBuild amazing web platforms with Webflow

Hi #smartcommunity friends! Welcome to the Summer Series here on the Smart Community Podcast. We're taking a little break from new content over The Australian summer holidays, but with more than 260 episodes in the bank, we've got plenty for you to catch up on. During this Summer Series, we'll be sharing the replays of a few of our all time favourite episodes. And this week, i'm very excited to share with you a very powerful conversation I had with Dr. Emma Lee from episode 211, and actually we started 2021 off with this episode. Emma is a trawlwulwuy woman of tebrakunna country in north east Tasmania, and an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Research Fellow at the Centre for Social Impact, Swinburne University of Technology. Her research fields over the last 25 years have focused on Indigenous affairs, land and sea management, policy and governance of Australian regulatory environments.In this episode Emma tells us about her background in Indigenous archeology and land management, and passion for First Nations social impact and regional development. I flip the script a little bit from our usual question order and in this episode we start with discussing the emerging trend of Smart Country that people definitely aren't talking about enough. Emma explains what country is and the connection to country that First Nations people have, some of the things we can learn from Smart Country like fire management, a broader concept of conservation, and a reciprocal relationship with the land and environment.Emma shares with us the power of language and the way it has been and is used to position Indigenous and First Nations ways of knowing as less than the coloniser's knowledge, the decolonising and grieving work we all need to be doing, and the balance we need to strike between the global focus that is prioritised in academia and our modern world, with the deep local knowledge that is so important to Smart Country and Community.Emma tells us how this played out in her work with the Reset the Relationship Government Strategy that she helped create, and the doors that were opened and the shift that was created through a statement of love amongst the hate. We then touch on how social media creates and fuels division and how important inclusion is in our Smart Communities, as well as the concept of individual responsibility within a community and the big mindset shift that is for so many of us. We finish our chat discussing where to next for Smart Country and Smart Communities.Since the recording of the episode back in 2020, Emma has been busier than ever. She has moved homes, began a part time job in government whilst moving to part time with Swinburne University, there's also a big Treaty document tabled in parliament that she has been involved in. Amongst this and many other things, Emma has also published two articles in The Age, the first article is an in-depth profile of her and her work and the second an Opinion Piece on Indigenous Voice, both are exceptional reads that really showcase Emma's passion and the incredible work she does.We'll be sure to invite Emma back on the show in the future for a full update about what she's been up to. But in the meantime, as always we hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it.Find the full show notes at: www.mysmart.communityConnect with Emma via email ejlee@swin.edu.auConnect with me via email: hello@mysmart.communityConnect with My Smart Community via LinkedIn or Twitter and watch on YouTubeThe Smart Community Podcast is produced by Perk Digital.

As believers, we need to understand that the anointing upon our lives has the ability to cause a socio-cultural change in our world. We see examples all through scriptures: Daniel, Joseph, Abraham, to mention a few. One of the most prolific things about the believer's identity is that wherever he finds himself, he always thrives. As you pray and study God's word, know that the anointing can guide you in practical ways so that you thrive in all that you do, thereby causing your influence to grow. As a church, we need to buy a dream of social influence. Let our influence be felt beyond the church. Get interested in things that can disciple people beyond the church. Get involved in setting up systems that will make life easier for our children. We need to start patronizing Christian businesses so that directly and indirectly we are sponsoring God's agenda on the earth. By so doing, we can make demands on brands to create the changes we want to see and cut the funding of evil agendas. The church is powerful spiritually and physically. That power is in our numbers.
