Another read-challenging blog!

Fellow CANers,

If you can put up with the dry verbiage (brevity and no emotion seem to be required in such published reports!) you will see a very nice definition of social entrepreneurship. 

Are we on track?Do you enjoy thinking of yourself as a social entrepreneur?Here’s a carefully considered and researched definition that you might like to explore, to see how you measure up.

See if you fit the description!

I earned a B.A. in Hotel/Restaurant Admin, but soon realized that I wanted to do something more meaningful.  Became interested in nutrition and education when pregnant with my first child. Interest in health led me to becoming a foot reflexologist, which led to a massage practice and suddenly discovering the love of my life: Chinese medicine! Practicing for 18 years, Hawaiian/Californian, acu-educated PCOM San Diego/OCOM Portland. Started my CAP in <a href="" target="_blank">San Rafael</a>, Marin County, July 4, 2006, even while earning my doctorate at OCOM.  This didn't seem to make sense, but it was my way of comparing the old way of practicing acupuncture to a simpler, truer expression of what I had learned in school.  I love it. And I love being a part of this grand movement to change the world by being true to our conscience. Reopened all over again when I moved to a place where no one had ever heard of me. 3 months open so far, and just beginning to meet expenses. I have no doubt this will succeed and I will be hiring by next year.

  1. Good article.

    Good article.  It helped me put what we at CAN are doing, into perspective.

    Though, I must admit I laughed out loud when I read the following:  “There is no scholarly consensus on what it is that entrepreneurs do when they are being entrepreneurial.”

    Ha!  That’s certainly been the case for me – I’m just making it up as I go along!
