If your business is anchored in driving social change like ours is at Safi Media, you’ll resonate with the challenge that exists around using your business as a container to drive systemic change in the world. Eleanor’s guest this week is a powerful example of a woman entrepreneur who is using the vessel of entrepreneurship to right a global wrong, specifically, the wrong that is chronic disease.

Her work is all about solving some of the thorniest issues that continue to plague the world, and she’s here this week to share how she’s using her business to make a difference in the international development space.

This episode is full of gems for any entrepreneur who has a social mission. Listen in this week to hear how Andrea is using entrepreneurship to right the global wrong of chronic disease, the psychology behind making people care about your vision, and the practices Andrea uses to organize her time as she engages in different priorities.
