Running a social enterprise is a roller coaster.
One day things are looking great, and the next, you feel like everything has been derailed and you are falling.
Your mission is all consuming, but you don’t have all the answers, and at some points it feels hard to keep going. At certain points you say, “I don’t know what to do next.”
That’s where our coaches come in.
You don’t have to be the hero, you don’t have to go it alone.
