Your purpose-driven business idea maybe be just what the world needs right now

(and how we can help you launch or scale it)
I am always connecting with others. I consider networking to be one of my strengths and something that I enjoy doing. Last week I reached out to someone new while scoping out potential partners for a project that I am working on. One of the first things the person mentioned to me during our virtual exchanges was “your business is just what the world needs right now”. This was in reference to socialaim.co while we learned about each other’s work and passion. I didn’t think about it much at the time, however, this came to mind again while I was doing some reflecting and meditating. I thought to myself: She’s right. After all, I launched socialaim.co because I believed the world needs it. My community needs it. My world, as an underserved entrepreneur; needs it. More importantly, though, I believe that we all can create or contribute towards solutions that address the most pressing social and environmental challenges that we care about or would like to see solved. We can do that by trusting our creative minds, making our contributions count, and pursuing our passions. Let's dig into that a bit more below.
1. Trust your creative mind
Our minds are incredible. I think our creative mind is one of our most underrated superpowers. The ability to imagine what you want to create and see it in action before it happens is so amazing. Think about it, if you’re running a business right now, I am almost 100% sure that it was just an idea in your mind or someone else’s. You or someone else believed that the world needed a product or service bad enough and did what it took to launch that business and make it happen. So, don’t take your creative imagination for granted; take advantage of it. Let it lead you in continuing to innovate your current business model or generate new ideas into the world which can solve a major problem in your community, or the world.
