Connecting Social Enterprise with Kylie Flament
If a business and a charity had a baby, you’d have a social enterprise.
Social enterprises trade like any other business, but they exist to solve social, cultural, or environmental problems.
They generate most of their income from their product/service and reinvest profit/resources in a way that community benefit outweighs the individual benefit.
Kylie Flament talks to us about finding her tribe in the world of social enterprise, and how the philosophy of ‘enoughness’ empowers her with the freedom to keep on doing good for people and the planet.
I don't have to spend every moment of every day feeling like I'm chasing something that I can never get in a more more more culture, you'll never arrive, you'll never succeed. There is no end goal to more, more, more. But there's an end goal to 'Enough'. Kylie Flament, SECNA.
