In Part 1 of this this two-part post, I went all nuts typing about why Vanessa and I believe the world is broken. But even though we believe that, it doesn’t mean we don’t think the world can be fixed – in fact, with the help of our fellow entrepreneurs, we believe quite the opposite. With that in mind, let’s get a little more optimistic!
Only Entrepreneurs Can Fix It
In the following video, I put the world on notice: Mayniax Branding exists to build the next Fortune 500!
Now, since you’re might be thinking building the next Fortune 500 won’t fix anything, I should probably elaborate. The power in this country, not to mention the world, comes from wealthy corporations and entrepreneurs. It comes from money. And I don’t believe we fight money with “Occupy” movements, yelling at politicians for giving themselves raises, or by feeling the Bern.
In true “fight fire with fire” fashion, I believe we fight money with money.
If you’ve read our About page, you know the kinds of entrepreneurs we deal with: the sympathetic, game-changer kind. We get those clients because we won’t work with people whose “why”s are either because they know how to do what they do, or because they like money. We work with entrepreneurs who want to make things better for people. When people care about our entrepreneurs’ brands, those entrepreneurs do better financially, and when our entrepreneurs do better financially, they can make a huge impact on the world.
If you can’t beat the Fortune 500, join them. And bring in lobbyists to fight for change that matters.
That’s the grand vision of Mayniax Branding – to make it so our clients can go toe-to-toe, anywhere in the world, with the monied elite, and make real, positive change.
Entrepreneurs Are Already Making it Happen
Sean “Diddy” Combs recently built a school in Harlem.
Oprah Winfrey opened the Leadership Academy for Girls, in South Africa.
According to this Forbes article, America’s top 10 philanthropists gave a staggering $7.1 billion in 2014!
Bill and Melinda Gates, on top of creating the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, they and Warren Buffett created The Giving Pledge – in this interview with 60 Minutes, the Gateses promised to give away 95% of their wealth to causes, while Warren Buffett promised to give away 99%!
Let’s Make Our Dreams a Reality, Together
The world is broken, and we believe entrepreneurs are the only ones who can fix it. And we believe they will fix it, so long as others care enough about their brands to help them make that happen.
That’s our big picture. That’s the vision behind our “why.” Our dream is to do everything we can to help make this world a better place, but we need help. So, what’s your dream?
Stay gutsy, gang!
