The Dollar AND Difference Show

The Dollar AND Difference Show
We’re entrepreneurs who care. We’re building wildly profitable companies that ARE ALSO wildly impactful. We’ve got a social impact that we care deeply about and we’re not afraid to bake that impact into our businesses. You might call yourself things like: social impact entrepreneur, purposeful entrepreneur, or just an entrepreneur who gives a damn. Companies like Warby Parker, TOMS Shoes, and LSTN Headphones are our role models. So, if you are making a dollar AND a difference with your business (or if you want to) this podcast is the place where you can figure out how to do it. Support this podcast:
