With a leaping high five, I've completed my first online interview. It may have had some technical issues, but the content is rich. Our podcast show is truly for any business professional, but specifically designed for the social entrepreneur.

Since our world is changing, we as nonprofits and social entrepreneurs need to understand how to get in front of our client base. Texting is the new way to communicate, not emails. Search engines are replacing the fat directory book of Yellow Pages. Social media platforms are now mediums to remain in connection. Smartphones are used to do homework, watch entertainment shows, and create business documents.  As a social entrepreneur for 10+ years, I've had to redefine traditional vs. modern ways of communicating.

Let's be honest and tell the truth. We all get distracted. No one is exempt. Some of my closest colleagues wouldn't believe this is true for me, but I reassure them all the time I'm not different from them. The key for me is that I've been able to identify the 3 faces of distraction.

The 3 faces of distraction are ours, so don't look for no one else but you. At some point, we all had them. If you're not sure, I'm happy to show you mine.

Uber: the newest form of transportation. But how do I be an Uber rider? What’s the process to signing up? All great questions! In this episode of SEwNAW we talk about being Uber riders and the step you need to take if you want to catch a ride. Follow these simple steps and you will be in an Uber and on your way in no time!

Step 1: Download Uber Application/Set up profile

It’s as simple as downloading the application, Uber.  Go to your application store, depending on your operating system and download the app. Once downloaded,  you set up your profile. Add your name, number, photo and credit card information, which is stored for future use.

As of recent, the question I keep hearing is "What is social innovation?" in business arenas. The 'social innovation' throws a lot of people off. The basic concept of innovation is to create. However, when adding the social aspect to innovation, the looks you'll get are somewhat aloof.

Is it the 'social' before the innovation? Why doesn't social innovation make sense? Hasn't social innovation been established and recognized? Don't we have social innovator awards? Aren't there great social innovators in history?

The answers to all these questions depends on your view of social innovation. One's perspective would have to take in account that 'social' programs are correlated to government subsidies (i.e. - food stamps, housing, social security, etcetera). Therefore, anything with 'social' in front of it has to do with the government. The Graduate School of Stanford Business has a Center of Social Innovation, and they define it to be a novel solution to a social problem that is more effective, efficient, sustainable, or just than current solutions. The value created accrues primarily to society rather than to private individuals.

My earlier blog on How to Be An Uber Driver was early in my career, but since then I’ve had multiple inquiries and request on how to to be an Uber driver. In addition, I’ve also received my first referral. I’m happy to know those who are looking for extra money can find it with this opportunity.

We all got problems. No one's exempt. Today on May 11, 2016, I've encountered a major issue. This happened out of nowhere. There was no warning, no planning and it's done to where I have no control over any of it. However, conflict provides clarity. 

As a Christian and believer of Jesus Christ, I get my strength from Roman 8:28 (KJV): "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Therefore, for anyone struggling out there, know that any conflict is good.

This podcast of the 4 Steps of Fundraising stemmed from a blog I wrote titled The 4 Components of Nonprofit Fundraising back on Jan 2015. I'm coming back to this topic because nonprofits are expected to perform in shark infested waters. The environment for donors have been snatched up via crowdfunding agencies.

To learn more of funding around nonprofits and crowdfunding, click here for my opinion around that topic. But we're going to keep it moving. For the 4 steps of fundraising, they are the following:

  1. Create AWARENESS - show up on their radar, and get more people in the door. We as nonprofits need to learn how to market year-around, not just for events or programs. This should be an ongoing process.
  2. EDUCATE your supporters - don't pigeon-hole or discriminate anyone. You never know how someone can help you once their qualified and prove to be a good fit.
  3. Allow a VARIETY for your donors - not everyone wants to donate. There are donors who want to donate money, but are also looking for opportunities to fulfill their time. They too want to make a difference without becoming a social entrepreneur.
  4. Have donor LOYALTY - provide the opportunity for reoccurring donations. One-time gifts are going to happen, but that shouldn't be the goal. Create the expectation with your staff to have donors on a reoccurring donation.

As I said in the podcast, I'm not perfect and learning this with my nonprofit too. You (and I) must evolve to stay relevant. Therefore, make the necessary changes to be successful with your organization.

For more information, the sources discussed in SEwNAW are below. We hope you enjoy our show. Any feedback is good feedback. Subscribe, share and review!

In the meantime, Dream Big and Godspeed.
