No Fear Friday – Take that Risk!!!

Our short and sassy Friday message is … take that Risk!

There’s no success without risk.   Everything good has some risk associated with it.  This does not mean you don’t look and evaluate reasons you might have challenges or even small failures along the way, but plan your journey with clear goals.

Make sure you are flexible in how you solve the minimal and big challenges along the way.   Don’t let them derail your overall ambitions!

Learn, learn, learn!!!   Each of these mistakes help you to learn.

I love Barbara Corcoran’s quote:  “Failure is what I’m best at.”   Of course, she is wildly successful because she learned from her failures!

Social vs Risk-averse Enterprises: Is it possible to be both

I had a webcast today with Kailash Ambwani, CEO of Actiance, to talk about how to become a social enterprise. You don’t want to miss this! If you are considering how to become a social business, and you are concerned about exposure, then this webcast is for you!

You may wonder is it possible to be a social enterprise and risk-averse? That’s the fundamental question Kailash and I will address today. I know that if you’ll listen in, you’ll see how we get to a resounding “Yes!” to that question.

I’ll also give my insights on the value of being a social enterprise, the range of benefits that are available to all organizations, and show you examples of where you can see success.

Kailash will speak to key corporate responsibilities and how organizations can keep confidential information confidential. He’ll also give us some core examples of organizations highlighting strong leadership and integration of social into business processes.

We’ll also answer the often asked question: “how do we get started?” Don’t miss out on this chance to get the inside scoop on how to become a social enterprise!
