Tony Loyd, Host of the Social Entrepreneur podcast.

If you don’t know me, I’m Tony Loyd.

For years, I worked as a Fortune 500 executive.

I watched as companies prioritized shareholders (those who own shares of the company) over other stakeholders such as the planet, communities, and employees.

I knew there had to be a better way. But I had no idea where to start. The pull of the status quo seemed too great.

In 2014 I met a group of social entrepreneurs – people who made a dollar and a difference. They made money, but the money went toward a mission.

Today, I’m a best-selling author, TEDx speaker, and coach to social entrepreneurs.

I host one of the world’s most downloaded podcasts.

I have interviewed hundreds of social entrepreneurs. I found that successful social entrepreneurs follow predictable steps.

Here’s what I found. Success leaves clues.

You can learn what makes them successful.

The Stakes are High

You see a need in the world that you can’t unsee. There’s a cause that burns in your heart.

The status quo tells us, “That’s just the way things are.”

The status quo is that you get up every day and act as if nothing is wrong with the world. It’s easy to be lulled into inaction by the status quo.

There is a high price for doing nothing.

  • Unless you do something, the world will remain unjust.
  • You’re missing the opportunity to make a difference.
  • You’re missing the chance to live to your full potential.
  • You’re missing the chance to live a life of significance.

It’s time to kick the status quo in the teeth.
