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.

Stephan Hatteberg | Yoga & Calisthenics Teacher

I like to think that my business is helping and will help the community, and eventually the world by empowering people to feel powerful in their own bodies. In calisthenics strong as a relative term. For example, the amount of actual weight that a person supports while doing a plank or push-up may be very different from the weight of another person. So there is no real linear measure for strength, it is entirely relative to your body. Also so much of calisthenics & yoga is assessed with feeling the body while doing the movements. This is important because if we all took a little more time in the day to feel what is happening inside our bodies & out we would treat ourselves and thus each other with a little more compassion.

Hannah Danford | Photographer and Dental Hygienist

This is actually a huge part of my mission and a large part of why I gave my business its name. When it came to naming my business, I was extremely picky because I wanted it to be an accurate reflection of my heart and my values. I wanted it to stand for something, not just be another tag for a photography page on instagram. I deeply desire that my work, whether that be in the dental office, behind the lens or even at home, honors God first and foremost. I believe that through honoring God first I will be better equipped and able to serve my neighbors well. Through photography, I hope to help individuals capture and remember special moments in their lives – a beloved pet, a 50th wedding anniversary, a graduation party, the passing of a loved one, a newborn baby, a renewal of vows, a big chamionship soccer game – to pause moments in time that can be reminisced and cherished later on. My business is called “Avodah Photos” for a reason. Read more>>
