IEP014: How to Give Back as an Entrepreneur with Sarah Ireland

I hear a lot of entrepreneurs saying they really want to contribute to a worthy cause, but they don’t know how to choose the right charity. They don’t know which organisations they can trust, there’s so many good causes out there they just don’t know how to decide where to donate.  

So, I’ve invited the CEO of my favourite not-for-profit (One Girl) onto the podcast to talk about the different ways we can give back as entrepreneurs.

One Girl believes that every girl on the planet has the right to an education. No matter where she is born, how much her family earns, what religion she adheres to, or what her culture says – every girl deserves the opportunity to learn, grow, and be the best she can be. And when you educate a girl, she can change her world.

Leading One Girl, is Sarah Ireland. She has over 10 years experience working across the humanitarian and development sectors. Sarah has worked on the frontlines of some of the worst humanitarian crises of recent years in the Philippines, Iraq, Syria and Myanmar.

Sarah joined me to talk about the work they are doing and what it’s like to lead a non-profit organization, plus, how entrepreneurs can support their favorite non-profits.

In this episode, you’ll hear about:

  • How to be a positive custodian of wealth
  • How listening to her intuition changed Sarah’s path dramatically
  • How Sarah made herself available for the opportunities that lead her to become the CEO of a not-for-profit
  • The awesome work One Girl are doing in Sierra Leone to educate girls and women
  • How to support your favorite not-for-profit as an entrepreneur (even if you’re not generating high income levels just yet)
  • How to choose a not-for-profit that feels aligned for you and your business
