WRITTEN:

Just BE Cause: Ah Ha Moments to Inspire the Next Generation of Change Makers is a book about social entrepreneurship for the millennial generation.

We’ve all been frustrated with the way things are, and I hope I’m not the first to tell you that you have the power to do something about it. You have an alternative to working for “the man”, being a cog in the machine, grinding, hustling, the day-to-day struggle. You can use your passions to build a social mechanism that makes a difference.

Just BE Cause is a collection of stories, anecdotes, and wisdom from community leaders, innovators, leverage experts, executive directors and CEOs. The book breaks down Social Entrepreneurship – providing definitions, examples, and history, – and ultimately advises Gen Y on how to use our unique values and ideology to create social change and spread the world’s wealth while doing it. Ideally, those who read it will use the gems to help them start their own socially-motivated entrepreneurial enterprise.

CREATING INNOVATORS by Tony Wagner

IN THIS  GROUND BREAKING BOOK, education expert Tony Wagner provides a powerful rationale for developing an innovation-driven economy. He explores what parents, teachers, and employers must do to develop the capacities of young people to become innovators. In profiling compelling young American innovators  such as Kirk Phelps, product manager for Apple’s first iPhone, and Jodie Wu, who founded a company that builds bicycle-powered maize shellers in Tanzania, Wagner reveals how the adults in their lives nurtured their creativity and sparked their imaginations, while teaching them to learn from failures and persevere. Wagner identifies a pattern—a childhood of creative play leads  to deep-seated interests, which in adolescence and adulthood blossom into a deeper purpose for career and life goals. Play, passion, and purpose: these are the forces that drive young innovators.
