One of the most rewarding things about getting to know so many entrepreneurs is seeing first-hand how many of them are focused on so much more than just financial results.  So many of the folks we connect with are focused on having a positive social impact on their community or the world at large.  Check out some of these amazing folks below.

Lynel Goodwin | Overall Educator

My entire life is dedicated to preparing the next generation to take over the reigns of society.

Stephanie Lloyd  | Education Manager at Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park

I have been the Education Manger at Heritage Sandy Springs Museum and Park since August 2019. Our mission is to preserve the history and culture of Sandy Springs through the stewardship of a community park and by offering education, events and outreach to the community. What started out as a community effort in 1985 to save the original spring site where five underground springs converge ( the city’s namesake), has turned into the cultural heart of Sandy Springs.

Antonette Currie | Business owner & Lupus Warrior

My business helps the community or the world by bringing forth knowledge on products that will not only help people physically but mentally as well. When you heal mentally then you can physically. What sets me apart from others is that this comes straight from the heart. I have a story from living with Lupus to overcoming the illness and while in my journey of healing myself, I am also assisting others in their journey to a healthier lifestyle. Live. Love.

As part of this objective, starting April 1 and for 30 days, I have committed to making and sharing a piece of art each day through social media. My color palette has always been bright and cheerful and the fine art collages I am creating for this challenge are no exception. Read more>>

Manda McKay | Artist & Activist

I create my artwork in order to share a vision of a better future. I attempt to shine a spotlight on social ills and dismantle the patriarchy that has caused so much suffering for so many. My paintings have been exhibited at major shows and viewed by thousands of attendees, so I hope I’ve been able to influence at least a few people. The reactions to my work make me think I’m on the right track. Read more>>
