On today’s episode of Monetize the Mic, Jess and Margy are talking with the Co-Founder of Benefit Capital, Bessi Graham. Recently, Bessi helped Margy realize that there are many ways that businesses can give back that don’t include just giving to charity. There are so many options for business owners to use their resources in order to make an impact within their own company. You can make a big change in your business by basing your thinking, behavior, and decision-making on your values (how you pay your employees and what kind of conditions and culture they work in, etc). If you are clear on your own values (really strong reflections on who we are), then it is much easier to be decisive as a leader. And at the end of the day, you are a business owner and not the leader of a nonprofit so you ultimately need to make decisions as a business owner so you can still be financially sustainable. There are more ways to be a generous, decent human that don’t include giving everything away for free.
