Now more than ever, entrepreneurs and business leaders are recognizing the need to give back to their communities. Founder of Legacy Leaders Global, Laura Gisborne, takes it to whole new level, as she and her team partners with their clients in the giving back process - to the extent that after 3 years, 100% of their consulting fee is given straight to charitable initiatives!
How does she do it and remain highly profitable, able to expand her reach around the world?
In this interview, Laura outlines her business model and cycle of giving philosophy, which now provides regular contributions to thousands of women and children in multiple countries across 5 continents.
Laura shares from her 20+ years of business experience the importance of systems, and why, in order for a business to make an enduring contribution, it needs to be owner independent.
She goes on to share why this is the most exciting time in history to be a women entrepreneur, and encourages listeners to start small and build from where you are, using a heartwarming story of women in Africa who are turning their $150 micro-loans into thriving businesses.
In addition, having built 9 businesses and selling 6 of them, Laura sheds light on the best way to set up your business for sale from the beginning, as well as the right time and reason to sell your business if you choose to do so.
As a speaker, Laura also explains how she is able to provide free training seminars and turn a normally uncomfortable marketing ploy into a generous giving experience that people love to participate in.
Whether you are a new entrepreneur or mature business leader, Laura's interview is one that you won't want to miss.
