There is lots of talk on social media about the messed-up state of our national politics (aka the culture war) and plenty of influencers say they have the BIG solution.
But maybe the solution is to start smaller—with something like opening a business that serves your community and brings people together.
Entrepreneurship and innovation are the two driving forces that keep our country moving forward. They are the catalysts that inspire individuals to take risks and create positive change for themselves, their families, and their communities.
In my writing, I often shed light on the pervasive corruption and malfeasance that plagues major corporations and big banks. However, it is equally important to highlight the individuals who are actively working to create a better world, despite Big Finance and unethical behavior. These are the Americans who are not just talking the talk, but are also putting their money where their mouth is.
Recently, I came across a remarkable story of a young entrepreneurial couple in California. They run multiple businesses, including two restaurants. Upon realizing the local dearth of organic grass-fed beef from cows raised and treated humanely, the couple decided to act. They dropped everything, purchased a large plot of land, and relocated their entire family to work full-time on a farm.
Through sheer dedication and hard work, their business thrived. They began by supplying organic meat to the local community, expanded to selling online, and even published cookbooks featuring recipes centered around the organic meat they cultivated on their land. Their venture was a resounding success.
So, what made this ranch and its product so exceptional? First and foremost, the couple’s aim was to benefit their community and offer an alternative to factory-farmed beef. Their goal was not to maximize profits at any cost, but rather to provide their community with a more principled, healthier choice.
They also started small. Their intention was not to revolutionize the cattle industry overnight, but rather to provide their local community with a top-quality product. Profitability was achieved without an obsession for maximizing profits.
