Have you ever been inspired by people who do amazing things in life? Ever want to just sit down and talk with them? This isn’t exactly that, but it’s pretty close. We’re launching a brand new video series called “Chats with Changers,” where we’ll be talking with incredible individuals who are making a significant impact in the world. For our first episode, we’re Skyping with Bianca & Livia Fioro, the co-founders of an organization called The Kind Market.
Why Are We Doing This?
If you haven’t noticed we’re a different kind of company. We’re belong with a group of other similar companies that don’t really fit into traditional industries. We’re not for-profit companies, because we value people over money. But we’re not charities either, because we use business as a tool to help others. Social good, social enterprises, social entrepreneurships, socially responsible, socially conscious – whatever it is you want to call us, that’s us.
And in our industry, there’s really no competition. We’re not try to steal each others customers or grab up the market share. We’re honestly trying to make the world a better place. So because of that, we see each other not as competitors, but as friends. Partners.
Chats with Changers is an effort to lift up and show-off other people and organizations that are changing the world for the better, because they deserve the attention. It’s also a casual conversation with the people behind these movements, people no more special or talented than you.
Who is The Kind Market?
I discovered The Kind Market through Instagram. They’re an organization that seeks to educate and empower women in developing countries. The Kind Market works with grassroots projects that provide women with sustainable jobs and an income through creating beautiful products that are sold in the United States. They currently partner with projects in Guatemala, Uganda, the DRC, and Peru. Each purchase of jewelry, handbags, purses, clothing, or other accessories from their site help to impact women around the world.
I got a chance to chat with the co-founders of The Kind Market, Bianca and Livia Fiorio. These two amazing sisters had the opportunity to travel the world, and through those experiences, saw a need, and did something about it. Join me in learning more about their journey:
