Evolved Enterprise is about empowering people to create businesses that truly inspire them and make them excited to get out of bed in the morning.

We believe that business can be about much more than just earning profits - business can also be the ultimate lever for making a difference in the world.

In fact… businesses that are embracing a meaningful cause have discovered that it gives them a significant competitive advantage over their competitors… and that’s why this idea will continue to spread.

We’re now in the midst of a ‘global shift’ in the way entrepreneurs think about business. As Zappos.com CEO Tony Hsieh has said:

“There’s a transformative shift in business, and what worked before is no longer an option. It’s time for evolved entrepreneurs, visionary creators, and change makers to rewrite the rules of business for the 21st century.”

We believe that businesses who fail to adapt to this new paradigm will be on life support within 4-7 years…

...And that’s why we’re committed to driving this movement forward.

Our purpose is to give entrepreneurs the training, resources and assistance they need to transform their business into a force for good in the world… and to enable them to create a significant impact that’s about more than just earning profits. Yes, profits are important… But it’s at least as important to make sure we spend our finite days on earth doing something that makes us feel invigorated and inspired - and leads to greater happiness. We don’t believe there has to be a trade-off between profits and fulfillment… on the contrary, having a more meaningful mission in your business can help drive higher profits at the same time. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to show entrepreneurs how they can align happiness and profits… and we believe the best way to do that is to work towards a cause that you're truly passionate about. As the saying goes, give a man a WHY and he can bear almost any HOW. Your head can tell you HOW to accomplish something, but only your heart can give you the WHY. This is about getting your head and your heart working on the same team for a common goal. But to do that, you need to have a business model that allows you to accomplish something that really matters to you - while also being highly profitable… We call that an Evolved Enterprise.

Here’s what the Evolved Enterprise model can help you do:

  • Create a business that is a full expression of YOU - your “true self”… and allows you to liberate your greatest work out into the world
  • Make a more meaningful impact on the world - one that's aligned with what you love and what's important to you.
  • Achieve a higher level of fulfillment in your work... while also making higher profits.
  • Build a unifying purpose into your business that gives your team a greater mission to rally around.
  • Attract an army of loyal customers who care deeply about your cause and want to help you succeed by spreading your brand.
  • Create a 'baked-in' impact in your business, so every sale automatically furthers your cause.
  • Have a significant competitive advantage over businesses that have no core impact.
  • Transform selling into an expression of love and the highest form of service you can possibly give another person.

We aim to “change the way business is played” by getting these ideas into the hands of as many visionary entrepreneurs as we can.

Because when we’re at the end of our lives, none of us wants to wonder if we’ve really lived up to our true potential… or if we could have done a lot more to make the world better.

We're starting a movement.
