Scaling With Impact

Scaling with Impact
As an entrepreneur, the impact you make is the value you create both in the market and in your community – local, national, or global. When the goal is scaling your impact, keeping your impact at your core at each stage of your growth is integral to not only the service or product you provide, but the cause you’re serving as well.
