The Grateful Entrepreneur
Do you know you have a good business model, but can’t figure out why it’s not showing the results you expected?
Do you wish you could create tight-knit and long-lasting relationships with the people that matter in your industry—whether that means clients, customers, partners, vendors or anyone else?
Well, now you can do just that using a surprisingly simple shift: gratitude.
Scott Colby’s influential and actionable book The Grateful Entrepreneur: 40 Gratitude Strategies to Build Relationships, Grow Your Business and Make More Money is exactly what you’ve been looking for.
About Scott Colby & Say It With Gratitude
After learning about the positive benefits gratitude can have on people, such as more joy, happiness and optimism, Scott decided he wanted to create a gratitude movement called Say It With Gratitude. Always a big believer in handwritten thank you notes from an early age, when his parents made him send thank you cards to Grandma and Grandpa as a kid to thank them for Christmas presents, Scott decided to start there.
Wanting to get kids and charities involved in his new adventure, Scott decided to have kids draw the artwork for the cards! Say It With Gratitude’s first set of cards we drawn by kids from Guatemala, and a portion of sales were donated to Pencils of Promise, which builds school in Guatemala and other developing countries.
Say It With Gratitude Today
In the first year and a half, Say It With Gratitude has worked with a number of different kids’ causes including kid’s cancer, kid’s hunger, child abuse, bullying, and education – always finding kids that had been positively affected by a charity, and giving back a portion of sales to that charity.
Today, Say It With Gratitude has established a partnership with Hug It Forward, the same organization that Scott helped build schools in Guatemala with. Hug It Forward is a multicultural organization operating at the grassroots level in the region of Latin America, with an emphasis in Guatemala. They facilitate education and awareness around improved trash management methods via the construction of bottle classrooms. For every pack of cards sold, Scott makes a donation to Hug It Forward to help them continue building bottle schools.
