We’re now in the final stages of our telesummit follow up – its been great reading all the feedback, taking the next steps and tying up all the loose ends.
One of these loose ends was to donate a small percentage of the sales of our Total Telesummit Package to KIVA – the charity we had decided to align ourselves with. Kivaâ€™s vision is for world where all people, even in the most remote areas of the globe,Â hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and others. They provide capital to those in need, helping them to create better lives for themselves and their families. More than 80% of Kiva loans go to women entrepreneurs in developing countries around the world.
So – it was with pleasure that we gave this donation and we look forward to more in the future.
Why Ethical Business?
Janine and I believe we are fortunate to be in a position where we can establish our own business and contribute through our programmes to other business women on their journey.
In addition, social entrepreneurship is important to us. Ethical business is one of our values, and we think its important that as we go on our business journey, we are constantly contributing to our community and other business entrepreneurs, that we are walking the talk…. and this donation is just the start. We have great plans for how we can use our time and expertise in the future to benefit women all around the world.
Is Ethical Business important to you?
This process has also made us curious about other businesses – and we’d love to know:
- What does ‘ethical business’ mean to you?
- Do you take any steps within your business planning to incoporate social responsibility? If so – we’d love to hear what you do!
Thanks in advance – for us this really is just the start and we always welcome feedback and ideas!
