About The Book
It is often said by great men and women; “success is 80% psychology and 20% mechanics”. If so, then here is your cheat sheet to enable you to become an adept, concise, and creative entrepreneur in social impact.
Are you an aspiring social impact entrepreneur? With ideas of making the world a better place but no idea what you are most passionate about and no idea how you could make a living off of it? I was asked a question on how to do both in 2015 and the ensuing discussions led me on a journey of research and discovery.
Place To Grow: 8 Principles that will make you an effective leader in social impact will give you the starting out mindset. It comes after a decade working with local governments, SME’s, non-profits, multinational corporations, and individuals. As well as over two decades in education and human behavior studies/work. No matter what your idea is – it could be a solution to the plastic crisis, more sustainable fashion systems, poverty eradication, or connected to any one of the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals – You will need to lead others and you will need the mindset that will enable your success. The development of this mindset is the goal and purpose of this book.
Angela Ortiz is an accomplished public speaker, social impact entrepreneur, CSR professional and author.
Her passion for social impact can be traced back to her pre-professional days as a teenager travelling in developing countries around Asia. There she saw firsthand the many long-term negative effects of ignorance and social division on the lower socio-economic communities. In the aftermath of Japan’s 3.11 triple tsunami, earthquake and nuclear meltdown she volunteered and launched a community rebuilding nonprofit. She is a dynamic and authentic social impact leader who inspires action in her audience.
Outside of the office(s) Angela is a self-proclaimed nerd and coffee-holic who enjoys self-education and fitness. She can be found at a spartan race, on monkey bars, at the corner baristas or speaking on sustainability and social impact anywhere across Tokyo where she currently lives with her daughter.
