wattsnext Group Founder Sue-Ellen Watts believes in the power of Entrepreneurship in the wider world and doing business for good.
We often hear stories of the ‘born entrepreneur’. The kid who had a lemonade stand at five, sold baseball cards at school when they were eight, started a newspaper round at ten! Well I wasn’t that kid but from the early stages of my working life I realized quickly that I wanted three things:
I didn’t want to ever have to rely on anyone else for what I needed in life
I wanted freedom to design a life that spoke to my beliefs, passions and goals since so much of life is designed by the work we do
inspiration has been a key fuel source for me since I was little. Books, quotes, human stories. I wanted to inspire.
I didn’t know the term entrepreneur until well into my first business, however I now know I became an entrepreneur because it delivers these three things that I wanted in my life.
I am incredibly grateful for having the ability to keep expanding myself and designing my life through entrepreneurship.
As a result, I wanted to give the gift of entrepreneurship: independence, creativity and the opportunity to inspire; to those who not only need it most, but who could leverage it to create critical change in our world. I believe this to be women in developing countries.
These women need the gift of entrepreneurship much more than I ever did or will. Women who need to be entrepreneurs for the survival of themselves, their families and their communities. This is why the wattsnext Group are committed to helping women in third world countries become entrepreneurs.
In January 2017 we became Partners with B1G1, a social enterprise and non-profit organization with a mission to create a world that’s full of giving by helping people make a positive impact for others. This Partnership has enabled us to provide income generating opportunity impacts including business loans, bookkeeping skills and business training for women entrepreneurs .
