WEconomy

Author: Craig Kielburger
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9781119447795
Release Date: 2018-03-07
Genre: Business & Economics

The book introduces the WEconomy - a fusing social purpose with for-profit business models - and outlines two defining principles with strategies to make them happen: Profiting by Purpose and Purpose by Profit. Purpose is the biggest thing to happen to business since the assembly line. Mounting evidence points to workers and consumers are increasingly dedicating their talent and using their spending power to companies that make a positive impact. Purpose is the most powerful untapped force to enhance your career and your business: it is a marketing plan, a customer loyalty program, an incentive to build B2B relationships, even an open door to new markets. But it's not enough to know that purpose is important; you have to know how to execute it. This book shows how to apply the same principles of business to boost the productivity and performance of your CSR strategies and charitable partners. Social mission needs a sustainable strategy as much as a core business plan. And it is this kind of purpose -- a productive, tactical social purpose with profit incentives - that is addressed in this book.

Release Date: 2013-12-02
Genre: Entrepreneurship

Are you really ready to be independent? To be a successful entrepreneur, you don't just need to know how to run a business. You need to know how to run your life when the boundary between work and personal time has essentially been erased. But while there are countless books on setting up a company, there hasn't ever been a primer on navigating the unique emotional and personal demands of entrepreneurship. That's what All In is all about: how to thrive in the entrepreneurial lifestyle--and how to avoid its pitfalls. In All In, Arlene Dickinson tells the truth about the dangers of believing your own hype, listening to naysayers--and ignoring naysayers, too. Dickinson explains why the need for control is a double-edged sword that can get a business off the ground, then cause it to stall. She also discusses what the need for control does to a marriage--and how success can test family relationships even more than failure. All In will open a new level of dialogue in the entrepreneurial community, bringing often-unspoken truths into the light and showing readers all the ways they'll be tested in their new endeavour. Packed with Dickinson's own hard-won lessons, and those of other successful entrepreneurs, All In is for every small business owner who's ever felt like they're the only one and every coffee-break dreamer wondering if they can hack it. At its best, the entrepreneurial lifestyle is all about independence--not just financial independence, but the psychological independence that comes from charting your own course--and All In will help readers achieve that freedom.
