Episode 161: Breaking Carbon – Impact as an Economic Driver

We hope you are in a comfortable position to listen to one of the most inspiring discussions our show has ever seen. Learn about how impact can really be an economic driver – through the beautiful stories of our host in the pursuit of African entrepreneurs’ empowerment; how a experienced #FS professional decided to reclaim the rebellious drive to inspire others towards the power of social good through storytelling; the story of a life dedicated to #GivingBack and the way she created a link between growth and sustainability with positive impact; and final – as a true fairytale, how a GOOD stepmother helped nurter the idea to create the incredible GoParity platform, which currently funded +250 (profitable) projects that are changing the world.
