How to Make an Impact as a Social Entrepreneur During COVID-19
In the final episode of season 2 of Impact India, I sit solo in my front yard (the furthest outside I can get right now) to chat about moving forward with personal and professional goals in a time when the future is so uncertain.
Listen to more Causeartist podcasts.
In a country with the strictest lockdown policies, India has entered stage 3 of COVID-19 (meaning community transitions—new cases have no identified infection source or travel history) and panic is starting to really set in.
However, it is so important that we sprinkle a little bit of positivity into our lifestyles and work through absorbing, reflecting, and strategizing on how to thrive in the now.
In this episode, I dive into:
- How to shift your social brand to meet the current needs of your audience during the pandemic.
- My thoughts on the tourism industry over the next year.
- How I made the hardest and best decision for my social business, Hara World.
Thank you all for listening to season 2 and for taking the podcast global. I am so grateful to know that so many people around the world want to support the stories and impact of innovators here in India.
Season 3 will be coming at you as lockdowns open up over the next month. My goal is to focus the season on following the stories of entrepreneurs navigating business growth post-pandemic.
