17 Mar Episode 49 Making Social Impact Through Your Business By Liz Volpe
I had the pleasure of talking to Liz Volpe about her journey on self-discovery and purpose in business. Liz had carved a living running her successful marketing business however it was her trip to Cambodia that opened her eyes for children who were living in poverty and what could be done to help them. Liz tapped in her event and organizational skills on how to help these kids the best and Gen Z was created. Liz started Gen Z, a social enterprise where she and a team of people teach the kids in Cambodia about skills needed to start your own business.
This program was launched on 2015 and has helped hundreds of children living in poverty up to date. The workshops are now in 4th year and Liz and her team follow up on kids who have been through the education and see how they have transferred these skills to getting to university to study or have self sustained business that brings them income.
We talked about how today’s world we have different jobs, roles that we might not realize we need to have when we leave school. This year Liz is busy talking in schools, launching a documentary and she believes more passionate you are about your business and cause the bigger impact you can have.
