I’m so pleased to announce our October theme in the Work/Shop – which is all about the positive impact we, as individuals but more specifically as business owners, can make on the world! I’ve created a way at the end for you to share your #smallchangestheworld !
We’ve just this week started our journey to become a B Corp business (yippppeeee), something we’ve wanted to do for ages but has seemed like quite a daunting task! But after hearing the wonderful Ed and Pip sharing their own journeys and advice at Congregation, I knew it was time to get going! A B Corp business is a certification a business receives when it meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. It is a REALLY exciting time for business and I’m pumped to do this!
So we’re dedicating our shop, efforts and this grid to ‘making your mark on the world’ and taking stock of the impact your business makes on the environment, the community and all those directly affected – from your staff to your suppliers and customers!
To help spread the word and get more businesses involved, we’re launching #smallchangestheworld where not only will we be sharing the changes we’re making as we venture onto the B Corp journey BUT most importantly I want to ask this very community to get involved too. I would love to challenge you to make a change within your business, within the month of October, that does something good for others, the environment or society at large. We already work with so many small businesses that do good and we want everyone to start shouting about what they’re doing to help make the world a better place.
