Are you elevating your business and your community by #payingitforward?
As an entrepreneur, you are probably motivated by challenge and driven to success by a desire to innovate, optimize, and inspire. Your business is constantly pressing forward. But are you lifting up those around you and helping them move forward, too?
At #provokebetter, we feel our success as entrepreneurs can and should benefit more than just the bottom line. That’s why we prioritize community impact by making it one of our core values.
How can I do the same, you might ask? By creating space and making a pledge to #payitforward.
As part of our pledge, we filled 2022 with events we knew would give us energy while providing service and value to participants. This included:
- Presenting free educational seminars for groups such as Frederick Rotary, Frederick County SHRM, and the Women’s Business Network
- Facilitating events with TechFrederick, Frederick County Chamber’s SHE Week, Other Voices Theater, and more
- Conducting over 20 free business consultations for organizations wanting to #provokebetter
It’s just two months into 2023, and we have already renewed our #payitforward pledge of excellence and service to those around us by scheduling new events and seminars.
