Around 2008 - 2012 I was very inspired by social enterprise. I did lots of reading and research on the topics and it has had a lasting effect on how and why I do business. Ricardo Semler was one of those people.
It was interesting to see AppSumo refer to him, yet they don't really explain how or if they've implemented Ricardo's ideas. Which makes me feel a bit skeptical about it. 🤷🏽♀️
However, my personal take away from my journey at the time was that businesses can be more human. They don't have to be robotic, soul-sucking, money machines. They can be more. And it is the people that make that happen.
Once you realize that, possibilities of what you can create open up.
