Business for profit is DEAD!

Sorry to dissapoint you entrepreneurs and self made millionaires, but business for profit is dead…gone…buried…sung the hymms…goodbye. In fact it died a while ago we just hadn’t quite got around to noticing. Here’s the deal. All the fastest growing wealth of the last 10 years has been accumulated by the social entrepreneurs: Branson, Gates, Buffet, Soros to name a few. but has anyone noticed them stagnating. Look, dont get me wrong. Im a social entrepreneur too. I have a charity in India and an orphanage in Cambodia and I love playing a bigger game. Wikipedia defines social entrepreneurship as being for ‘more than profit’. It’s great but without the big WHY its dying too. So were are we heading.

For some of you I’m sticking my neck out because your still focussed on turning a quick buck, but the future is all about this term: SPIRITUAL ENTREPRENEUR. This is the way of the future. The most successful people will all be spiritual entrepreneurs. What is a spiritual entrepreneur? Well it is in fact all about self. Im not talking about being self absorbed, greedy and selfish. I am talking about true self definition. Understanding why you are on earth. Why you live where you do and why you have the people and situations around you that you do. Its about understand not HOW but WHAT you are going to do in your current environment and its not about profit. that is a by product of getting it right. It is about giving back. It is the next satge of social entrepreneurship. Thats the stage where you really know why you are doing what you do and being who you are.

The world is changing and its not great. Terrorism, the depletion of the system, fall of the big companies, change of ethicity in even the presidents of the mega powers. It is soon to become the age of the spiritual entrepreneurs. These people will be the true transformational leaders, leading us through this massive time of crisis and to a new and safe place. Every 500 or so years the earth has shifts, Look at Buddism, Christianity, Muslims, Templars, Rocsrucians, maybe now is your time to be a leader.

If you want to know what we are doing go to We aren’t sitting back waiting on Obama, or the UN or the Catholic Church or anyone to create change. We are creating it. Now is your time.
