How To Create A Meaningful Business One Small Touch At A Time
Contributed by Else Strom Vistisen August 11, 2017
Have you ever wanted to take time out to help people in need in your community, but simply did not have enough time? Or maybe you have asked yourself what would happen if you were able to give back just by doing the things you love?
I certainly had asked myself those questions on numerous occasions. I had many excuses, such as not having the time, not knowing who to contact and where, or found that the projects were just too complicated to understand.
Only two years ago I was fortunate enough to meet Masami Sato, the Founder and Paul Dunn, Co-Founder1 of B1G1. B1G1 Businesses for Good2 is a worldwide social non-profit initiative headquartered in Singapore.
It helps businesses around the world achieve social impact by embedding “giving” activities in their business operations to create unique Giving Stories. It’s a simple model where every business transaction or everyday activity can impact lives for as little as just 1 cent.
I have a passion to help alleviate pain one small touch at a time, but I also strongly believe in making a positive impact beyond what I do for my clients. Because of this I became a lifetime partner of B1G1.
If you too have been looking to create impact, let me quickly share how I have incorporated giving into my daily business transactions. You’ll see that there really is an easy and simple way to create a huge impact with the power of just a small touch.
