SO, YOU WANT TO GIVE BACK WITH YOUR BUSINESS?
You don't need to start a nonprofit or social enterprise to make an impact. You just need to make a decision.
Every day, solopreneurs and small business owners like you are creating change. They have decided to incorporate philanthropy and giving strategies into their business model because making money for the sake of it isn't enough. They want to give part of what they got.
You may even aspire to that idea yourself . . . one day.
But, right now, you think you don't have enough time, enough money, or enough __________. You want to be generous, but that's reserved for when you've "made it."
Or, maybe you've already acquired some success and are ready to take that charitable step, but you don't know where to begin. There are so many issues and organizations that need your help!
I'm here to tell you that what you have is already enough, and the time to start giving is now.
I'll show you how to use your existing resources and influence make a difference.
Let's add philanthropist to your job title.
Because I work with nonprofits and social enterprises, more traditional companies ask me how they can incorporate philanthropy and giving strategies into their business model. Solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, and other small businesses want to be able to meaningfully contribute to causes, but aren't quite sure what that looks like, or if what they have is "enough."
So, I'd love to help them (and you!) figure that out, because anytime I can encourage someone to donate to or participate in issues they care about, we're all better for it.
I've been around nonprofits all of my life, and even worked at a few. I have also been part of the social justice community since 2006, and affiliated with social enterprises since 2012. And in 2016, I even set up shop as Signify to specifically serve the nonprofit and social enterprise community through marketing and communications. I truly believe cause-focused organizations are the future of business, and when they succeed, we all win.
Now, it's your turn to champion a cause. I'll show you how.
This is a two-hour consultation, in-person if you're here in Atlanta, or via video chat if you're not. I'll also follow up with you one month later to see how it's going, and answer any other questions you may have.
During our time together, we'll talk about the specific resources and influence that you have to offer, what causes you're passionate about, and how you can start making an impact—now. We'll focus on what you already have at your fingertips, and I'll show you how it can be used to benefit others. You might just be surprised! Takeaway: There's no need to wait until you think you've "made it" to begin giving back!
To break it down:
- We'll discover and catalog the unique gifts, resources, and influence you have to offer.
- We'll discuss your interests and passions, uncovering what causes might be best suited for you and your business.
- We'll create an easy-to-follow action plan so that you can get started immediately.
- I'll also follow up with you a month after our consultation to see how it's going, answer any questions, or help you trouble-shoot.
- Bonus: If I know an organization that's a great fit for you, I'll make the introduction myself!
If you're ready to get started, let's get the ball rolling! I can't wait to hear more about you and the causes you're interested in!
