Throughout my life as a social activist-entrepreneur, I have always asked: How can we deliberately and consciously create a better world for everyone, not by striving to be perfect but by simply doing our best, with integrity and honesty?
And, my goodness, do I have ideas. Many, many ideas. Always have.
A few tidbits about me:
- I founded a forerunner to Taskrabbit back in the mid-80s; Executive Timesavers ("E.T.: Don't Phone Home, Phone Us").
- I created the first organic, socially responsible mail-order gift basket company in the late 80's.
- When I couldn't find a coordinator to volunteer for the 20th Anniversary Earth Day activities in 1990, I ended up becoming that person -- for the entire Mid-Atlantic Region.
- The day after Hurricane Sandy hit the NY/NJ area, I discovered via a FEMA friend that FEMA first responders didn't receive healthcare benefits. I started a Change.org petition and now they do. :)
That’s what a social entrepreneur does: You see a need involving The Common Good, and if there isn’t an existing viable solution, you work to introduce one which nurtures and builds a more wholistic society and economy.
Satellite, synergistic projects have been developed as the work at Wishadoo! has evolved. Our Good™ is now the parent organization, and serves as a portal to the various projects and initiatives.
Still other ideas are forming as I make new connections, crafting more pieces for this Universal Puzzle that is my life’s work.
