Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
This week I’m welcoming the New Year alongside new author Alex Budak to talk about how to help people create positive change. As a social entrepreneur, UC Berkeley faculty member, and author of Becoming a Changemaker, Alex dedicates his life to helping people from all walks of life make a positive impact in their lives, careers, and communities. He co-founded StartSomeGood.com, a platform that breaks down the barriers that prevent people from enacting change. StartSomeGood.com has now helped over 1,000 changemakers in 50 countries raise over $12 million to catalyze new initiatives. He previously ran Sweden’s leading social innovation incubator, Reach for Change, and worked at Change.org
At UC Berkeley Haas, Alex puts his heart and soul into teaching students and executives from around the globe the mindset, leadership skills and action steps required to become changemakers. He also serves as Executive Director of the Berkeley Haas Global Access Program and as a Faculty Director for UC Berkeley Executive Education programs. He has given lectures on changemaking, entrepreneurship, and leadership in venues ranging from Ukraine to Cambodia, LA to the Arctic Circle, and at the White House and UN agencies.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… people who are looking to inspire change within their organizations, their communities, society at large, and most importantly, themselves.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Everyone has the potential to be a changemaker, we just have to be willing to embrace the mindset and apply the concepts to a particular issue. Becoming a changemaker is a journey, and if you take the first step, you’ll find that you can navigate and thrive amidst any uncertainty.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… You can be a positive changemaker anywhere and everywhere you go!
