Aaron Hurst is the president and founder of the Taproot Foundation, which works to match up skilled professionals with nonprofits who need their help. He’s seen the social innovation space evolve from an open and undefined network of people trying to do good to a legitimate and more codified industry. While this certainly has created more respect and impact, Hurst isn’t sure it’s entirely better. His advice for budding social entrepreneurs:

  1. Know the difference between trying to create an innovation, and trying to scale that innovation. Trying to do both can often make it impossible to do either. 
  2. Find good partners. It’s rare that a social innovation that doesn’t involve multiple organizations and people.

Finance CEOs that survived the crisis held forums with their teams—here’s why open communication is an asset, especially when times are tough.

That leads to the most fundamental difference between firms that weathered the financial crisis and those that failed: The successful firms all understood the need for integrated decision making that took account of upsides and downsides of proposed actions and of the firm’s condition at any point in time. Leaders of failed firms simply didn’t get it. They either pursued market share or other league table rankings, essentially without regard to risks, or they failed to manage their firms well enough to be able to understand their potential exposures to downside risks.

Every choices that we make in life define who we are. Every mistakes that we make along the way shape who we are. Every lesson learned, every consequences faced, and every time we got back up when we fall, determine who we are. Your life is your destiny, not someone else’s. We are the captain of our own ship, sailing in the ocean. Lead the way. Don’t let the weather wears us off. Times will be hard sometimes, but we are harder and stronger each time we fall. Go. Sail. Discover. Enjoy. Live life.

"A great leader helps a group of people identify what they want and how to get it, and then influences that group, free of coercion, to take coordinated action to achieve the desired outcomes. A great leader achieves results at a level far beyond what others achieve."
