Profit Buzz : Answer the Call, Change the World

BY Ann Whittaker On Aug 12, 2014 With 0 Comments

We scour the Internet every week looking for the very best content for our readers that will help them develop profitable habits--and we're not just talking about money. We try to share world wide web wisdom that will help you get profitable emotionally, mentally and personally. 

The goal? Find everything we can to help you build a profitable business that will change the world, and your sphere of influence.  As we dig, we inevitably run across video, pictures or blog posts that are life-changing. 

Each Tuesday, we give out awards to our favorites.

This week's winner is...

TD Canada Trust's Automatic Thanking Machine

You'll want a tissue...and then you'll want to thank your customers in a thoughtful way.

Remember why you're in business in the first place: to change people's lives for the better.


And the Runners-Up Are:

#1 - Jason Silva : Nonconformity and the Creative Life

If you haven't seen Jason Silva's Shots of Awe series, you're missing out. They're quick little videos that will get you thinking about why life is so awesome. Here's one of our favorites.

Resist the tug of conformity. Answer the call. There is no one map on how to live our lives.

#2 - A Congolese Man Brings Happiness Through Simplicity

Sometimes, it's the small things that make a difference.

#3 - Leila Janah - Do More With Less

Janah founded and runs a nonprofit, Samasource, that teaches women and youth in rural villages and slums how to do digital-based work for companies like Google and Microsoft that are often housed thousands of miles away. 

 “At Samasource, we embrace the Hindi word jugaad, which means roughly ‘doing more with less.’ We share a small office on a gritty corner in San Francisco’s Mission District and try to keep things lean.” 

We love her attitude of doing more with less, and helping others rise above the poverty line. Samasource has helped over 14,500 people. How's that for changing the world?
