Awarded For the Fundamental Understanding and Application of Honest, Fair and Love-Based Business Practices that also Make Some Serious Cash
These are not perfect businesses, but they are businesses that have the best of intentions, course correcting when necessary.
They do the best they can, with what they have.
These are the businesses that decide to offer something useful and good for this world, while also taking good care of their people.
These are also the businesses that saw a condition in the world that broke their heart and did something about it.
Most times, “It's Just Business”, is just an excuse for bad behavior.
As if manners, common decency and responsibility go out the window when it comes to the bottom line and making a buck.
Let's stop this being “just the way it is”.
Not that you don't have to make tough love decisions and have a backbone to run a business. Of course you do.
But, why default to bad behavior just because it’s expected and allowed?
It's not necessary.
Some may argue that it's effective.
Maybe. Yet, its success is short-sighted and its effect on the spirit long-term can be devastating.
Not all results and consequences are tangible.
Not all costs and return on investments can be measured on a spreadsheet.
The invisible good we do matters.
The invisible harm we do effects people.
This Soul Success Medal for Humanity recognizes those who are creating businesses from the heart that serve the world in large and small ways.
It all matters.
May the ethical businesses in the world make some serious cash so they can keep doing this good work.
Let the profitable and purposeful be empowered.
