Doing Well By Doing Good

Naomi Enevoldson

Can a business really make a profit while doing something that makes a difference?

For some people the concept of ‘doing well while doing good’ is hard to comprehend. It was for me when I first heard of it! I used to think that the only way you could make a difference was through charity work and volunteering, which were both close to my heart and something I have been actively involved in since I was a child. However, social entrepreneurship, take making a difference and social responsibility to another level!

In my post, Are Charities Becoming More Social Entrepreneurial?, I outline the need for Charity organisations to start thinking out of the box and look for ways to become more self-sustainable. Social entrepreneurship takes the passion and social mission of a non-profit and combines it with the cash-flow and resources of a for profit business.

My journey as a social entrepreneur in just a short time has been incredible! Not only have I been able to change the future of our family and have a lifestyle that I could only have ever dreamed about but through my success over 600 children are now being nourished through our social entrepreneurial program.

In 4 years I have been able to build a 6 figure income, working part-time from home. I have the freedom to work the hours that I want to work and be there for my family. In only 4 years, I had earned three 5 star weekends on the Gold Coast for our family, 5 star trip to Adelaide, a weekend in the Yarra Valley in Vic where we went in a hot air balloon, two trips to the USA for 2, an all-expenses trip to Mauritius for 2, a trip for 2 to Vietnam, A trip to Mexico to visit the orphanages where our business nourishes the children, a trip to Club Med China, a trip for 2 to Tahiti, a Pacific Island Cruise for my family, a trip for 2 to Hawaii and an iPad plus lots of bonuses!! We went from struggling to even pay for the groceries and debt piling up to having plenty of money to do the things we have always wanted like a dream family holiday to the USA last year. I was awarded Top Business Builder in 2012, Top 5 Business Builders, Top National Director and Executive Director in 2013, Top enroller for 2014, Top Snr Executive Director 2015 and new Presidential Director in 2015 . The same strategies I have used to build a successful social entrepreneurial business both online and offline, we now train our team and my team was the fastest growing team in our company.

I am building a team of people who want to join me to help champion the cause of malnutrition while building a substantial income. You can do this part-time around what you are already doing and it can fund your other projects. We are currently responsible for nourishing 600 children through my business but with your help, I think we could nourish 1000’s.

Would you like to do well by doing good?

Dr Ben Carson On The Value Of Social Entrepreneurship

Dr. Ben Carson is a world-renowned paediatric neurosurgeon, humanitarian and best-selling author. He made global history in 1987 as the paediatric neurosurgeon who performed the first separation of craniopagus (Siamese) twins joined at the back of the head.. His career and fascinating story were featured in the book and movie Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story. A best-selling author, Dr. Carson just released his latest work, America the Beautiful: Rediscovering What Made This Nation Great.

The Value Of Social Entrepreneurship

In this video, Dr. Ben Carson shares his thoughts on health, business and the issues facing our global community. It contains some excerpts from that conversation where he talks about how being a doctor and a social entrepreneur share a motivation to help people. He also discusses the personal benefits of not only providing for yourself, but also reaping the benefits of knowing that your actions are simultaneously helping others in need. As a social entrepreneurship company, Mannatech is committed to helping in the fight against global malnutrition by linking five million consumers to five million children in need through its Mission 5 Million(SM) movement.

When he was faced with the major health challenge of cancer, after researching many products, he chose to support his body with glyconutrients and continues to take them 10 years later. He talks about real food nutrition here.

It’s truly an honor to hear from a man like Dr. Carson. Check out this interview:

Kids As Social Entrepreneurs?

Kids changing the world… one act at a time.

More and more, kids are wanting to have a positive impact in the world. They are taking action and mobilizing other kids to address problems from infant mortality in developing nations to neighbourhood concerns. They are donating to charities, volunteering to help others and even engaging in social entrepreneurship. They are taking the passion they feel about a cause and undertaking a business-like activity that earns money (or provides other resources) to support that cause.

Alex Scott, for example, was four years old and battling cancer when she started a lemonade stand to raise money for cancer research. After a year, she had raised $2,000. By the time she was eight, she had raised $1 million through the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Many kids like Alex are motivated to pursue a social entrepreneurial activity because they’ve been touched by something serious or significant and are moved to take action. They have had a personal experience with the problem. More often than not, though, these children would be hard pressed to pursue social entrepreneurship without the support and guidance of an adult.

Teaching Children Empathy

In my previous post, I outlined Ashoka’s new Empathy Initiative for Social Entrepreneurs and the importance of teaching empathy to children.

How do we help children learn the valuable skill of empathy?

1. Model Empathy

The most powerful learning tool for children is modelling these behaviours they see their parents doing. The more we model empathy and are aware of the needs of others, the more likely our children will exhibit similar behaviours. Likewise, we need to be empathetic towards our children and they will see this an model it in their relationships. Continue reading “Teaching Children Empathy” »

What Will Your Legacy Be?

Last year, someone very close to me passed away following a long fight with cancer. After the funeral, I  started to think about what I would like to be remembered for. Would it be that I loved and served God? Would it be that I was a good wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend? Maybe,  it would be that I was a good cook and hospitable. I might be remembered for the charity work I am doing with Empower 4 Life, that I hope will eventually change the lives of hundreds.

Yes, I would like to be remembered for all these things, but I also would like to be remembered for giving the gift of life to hundreds of at-risk, malnourished children all over the world through my social entrepreneurial project. Continue reading “What Will Your Legacy Be?” »

Malnutrition Solution Through Social Entrepreneurship


A key to the ultimate success of social entrepreneurship is the creation of an innovative new technology for solving an existing global problem. As the lack of proper nutrition has become epidemic in both industrialized and developing countries, the supplementation of essential nutrients has become a critical strategy for protecting health.

The problem is that although there have been major relief efforts for decades now focusing on alleviating starvation and hunger, new evidence shows that this strategy is doing little to reduce the growing incidence of malnutrition in third-world countries.

New research is also indicating that only 1% of the population are getting all the necessary vitamins and minerals needed for proper nutrition and health.

Until recently, synthetically made vitamins and inorganic minerals have provided the only source for standardized levels of these essential nutrients. Synthetic vitamins are made from coal tar or petroleum; and due to their low cost they are the primary choice of manufacturers of both nutritional supplements and enriched foods. Inorganic minerals, either mined or by-products of a chemical process, also provide an inexpensive source for supplementation, but do not have the solubility of minerals found in food.

Fruits and vegetables make vitamins in their tissues and then bond them to various minerals, fats, polysaccharides, amino acids and other vital Phytochemicals to create what is called a food matrix. Minerals become more soluble in food and this matrix of nutrients provides the co-factors required by the body for the proper absorption and utilization of all essential nutrients. It has become clear that the human body was designed to obtain its nutritional requirements from food. Continue reading “Malnutrition Solution Through Social Entrepreneurship” »

Social Entrepreneurs Are Ordinary People Who Dare To Dream

Remember when you thought anything was possible? Remember when you were a child and you dreamed of big things and big adventures? When did we forget how to dream, why did we settle for less?

Social Entrepreneurs are not extraordinary people…in fact most of them are quite ordinary but they all are big dreamers. Dreams give us hope and pave the way for the future. Social entrepreneurs are passionate about seeing change and see things as they should be, not as they are. They believe anything is possible. It is this belief that makes things happen. Continue reading “Social Entrepreneurs Are Ordinary People Who Dare To Dream” »

Social Entrepreneur – Blake Mycoskie

Social Entrepreneur Blake MycoskieBlake Mycoskie is a social entrepreneur who founded TOMS Shoes, the company that would match every pair purchased with a new pair given to a child in need. One for One. In September 2010, Blake returned to Argentina, where he was first inspired to start TOMS, to celebrate the one-millionth pair of new shoes given to a child in need.

After five years of giving shoes, Blake was ready to address another need: vision. On June 7, 2011, TOMS debuted One for One Eyewear, which provides eye treatment, prescription glasses or eye surgery with every pair purchased.

Former President Bill Clinton has introduced Blake as “one of the most interesting entrepreneurs [he has] ever met.” And Bill Gates featured Blake and TOMS Shoes in his Time magazine article, “How to Fix Capitalism.”

The Most Powerful Business Model – Social Entrepreneurship

The Reasons Why We Can’t Ignore Social Entrepreneurship.

Social Entrepreneurship is quickly becoming the most powerful business model of the 21st century. It is an exciting process by which passionate and ambitious individuals build or transform a business to provide innovative solutions to social problems such as poverty, malnutrition, illiteracy, clean air and water, and health care.

The world today is plagued by probably more problems than ever before in history. We face challenges like never before and the “to do” list is enormous and growing. Social entrepreneurship is a relatively new phenomenon that operates in areas where traditional non-profit and government‐based support structures have not been successful.

Mannatech Transition To Social Entrepreneur Company

Mission 5 MillionMannatech, Incorporated, the leading innovator and provider of nutritional supplements based on Real Food Technology(R) solutions, announced its plans to support its Mission 5 Million movement by completely transitioning its business into a Social Entrepreneurship model in August 2013.

Mission 5 Million or M5M represents Mannatech’s mission to eliminate global malnutrition and nourish 5 million children in need. As a Social Entrepreneurship company, Mannatech has created a nutritional supplement powder, called Phytoblend, specifically designed to help in the fight against global malnutrition. In a model similar to TOMS shoes, anytime a consumer purchases a Mannatech product, a donation of nutritional supplementation is provided for a child in need.

Unlike other Social Entrepreneurial companies,  Mannatech is the first Social Entrepreneurship company offering a leverage-based incentive program for those who choose to champion the cause of malnutrition. By changing the world and making a difference, you can earn a lucrative income, have a better lifestyle and more freedom.

“I am honored to serve this great company as we take this giant step forward,” said Bo Short, President of Business and Field Development. “Being able to financially reward people that champion our cause enables us to accelerate our mission to achieve an even greater impact. The ability to change YOUR world and THE world at the exact same time is a powerful and significant paradigm.”

Dr. Robert Sinnott, CEO and Chief Science Officer, added, “Mannatech has always been a company with a big heart and a big purpose. What’s different now is the clarity and focus of our mission, and the means and method by which we are setting out to make it a reality. That’s what M5M represents. We truly believe it has the ability to change the world.”
