The Conscious Entrepreneur: How to Create and Build an Organization with Purpose
AUDIENCE: Entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, college students
Many of us dream about starting a business at one point in our lives. Few of us ever follow through on that dream. Anne Mahlum is not one of those few. In 2007, Anne founded Back on My Feet (BoMF), a non-profit organization that uses the power of running to change the way those experiencing homelessness see themselves so they can make real change in their lives. Her vision for BoMF was simple, yet bold - to help as many people as possible and perhaps even change the perception of homelessness on a global scale. Today, BoMF is in 12 cities across the country and has helped thousands of people redefine and reclaim their lives. But being the entrepreneur she is, Anne had plans for another purposeful organization. She founded [solidcore], a boutique fitness studio, in D.C. in 2013. In a little under six years, [solidcore] has expanded to more than 70 studios across the country and counts the former First Lady, Michelle Obama as one of its regular clients.
