Social Entrepreneurship Featured in GoNegosyo
Entrepreneurship really has it’s bottom line, to earn a profit. But little that we know that this God given skill or talent should not be self-serving. Many entrepreneurs or business people just venture for the sake of profit or money. They put aside the humanitarian side of it and many businesses device tactics to earn more and more by eliminating jobs because they think that paying to too many employees will make their business bankrupt. That’s a valid reason, but not to some companies where the only objective is cost cutting to earn much more.
Some business owners say that they are running a business, not a charitable institution and I read in a forum that if you cling too much to charity, you might be asking for charity yourself. But there is a saying that “it’s more blessed to give than to receive”. Well I guess we all have different opinions but the only thing that matter is what we value most: Money or Charity?
The video from GoNegosyo is shares us an insight of social entrepreneurship. Watch the Youtube video below:
“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his own soul?”
(Mark 8:36-37, KJV)
