It's been a while since I sent out an update, which is just a sign of how much life I have going on! All is well in my neck of the woods, and I will have an exciting announcement coming out next month so get ready!
In my practice, I spend a lot of time talking to people about social entrepreneurship or using business to create positive impacts to people, the planet, and profits. This topic has been near and dear to me since college when I studied the game theory of corporate social responsibility. In law school, I dived deep into the law governing businesses that sought to do well while doing good. Now, as an attorney, I dedicate most of my time to helping kind and compassionate bad asses succeed in this realm of social enterprise! I feel honored to have so many opportunities to fulfill my mission of helping awesome people do awesome things!
Recognizing that many people don't know what a "benefit corporation" or "Certified B-Corp" is, or why these business forms exist, I co-authored an article for Idaho's monthly lawyer magazine, "The Advocate". This article provides a great overview and will get you up to speed, and I'd love to talk to you more about your views on the issues.
Click here if you're interested in reading the article, and remember that I have other educational materials on my website!
Thank you for reading! I hope you are finding plenty of opportunities to feel joyful!
So maybe I've had writer's block since August 2019, right around when I open Vervain. A girl only has so much time!! But historically one of my favorite things to do was express myself through writing. I generally do love exchanging knowledge with people trying to improve our community. This space is for me to share some of my musings in the hopes of adding more layers to our collective conversation. Please comment and share freely! I'll start writing some new material someday I'm sure!
