I know that there are a lot of good-hearted people out there who want to use their lives to make positive change in the world, but who also have the entrepreneurial bug and need to take care of their families. Contrary to popularly-held beliefs which say that you must forgo any material comfort in order to save the world, you can create a good life as a social entrepreneur.
For today’s radio show, I am interviewing the dynamic Amalia Souza, director of CASA (Center for Social-Environmental Support) in Brazil, and serial globe-trotting social entrepreneur. Amalia has done so many things in her 20+ years since college, from working in over 50 countries, to helping install computer networks in Africa, to facilitating delicate meetings between Amazonian tribes and non-governmental organizations to working with North American foundations to increase the level of funding from the U.S. to international locations.
She also happens to be a good friend and my former college roommate. So I am very delighted to talk to her about the key things she has learned about how to affect positive change while still having a free, interesting and comfortable life.
