In this week’s episode, I’m trying something new. Instead of just hearing from one guest, you’ll hear from 11.
I asked several past guests on the show “What do you wish you’d known before starting your social enterprise?” On this episode, you’ll hear responses from the following awesome folks:
- Simon Dixon from Kwango Kwaku
- Grant Brooke from Twiga Foods
- Ken Banks from Kiwanja.net
- Beth Meadows from Mercado Fresco
- Roshan Paul from Amani Institute
- Audrey Cheng from Moringa School
- Vava Angweni from Vava Coffee
- Randy Welsch from Jibu
- Jim Taylor from Proximity Designs
- Samir Ibrahim from SunCulture
Each of the guests this week have been brutally honest and candid in their responses, sharing their hard won lessons, since starting out on their journey.
The first few years of a social enterprise’s journey are not going to be easy. With these words of wisdom, I hope you’ll learn that everyone wishes they knew more when starting out – there’s never enough you can know. You’ve got to trust you’re on the right path, and taking strength from this community, stick to your vision.
