I really resonated with Dale’s experience as a serial entrepreneur and founder of Sevenly.org, a charitable organization that donates seven dollars of every item sold to charity. This is something that I want to do a lot more of and I was interested to see how he incorporates that into his business while teaching people to align with the book’s tagline: “Break the System, Live With Purpose, Be More Successful,” and to learn how to creatively help people while helping your business at the same time (a great example of this is Whole Foods!).
The book gave me new ideas for integrating social awareness and innovation for the greater good into my business. The honesty and transparency that you have in your business always wins, including with the people that you have working in your company. You have to make them happy too. People matter. Authenticity matters. You need to be a company that not just creates cool things but does cool things too.
Dale Partridge’s People Over Profit is a book for anybody who wants to start a business and inspire to make an impact on more than just the customers that they have.Buy the Book on Amazon
