Changing the world by challenging the status quo in business
Daniel Flynn and the Co-Founders of Thankyou
are changing the world through business. At 19-years-old, they started Thankyou as a social enterprise and a decade later they've been able to donate a massive $17 million to help end extreme poverty from the profits of the incredible products they sell. But for Daniel and his team, this journey hasn't been easy, especially as a 'for-purpose' business against the 'Goliaths' in the FMCG industry.
They've gone through multitudes of challenges, barriers, and hurdles over the past 13 years, and each time, they've harnessed the ability to think outside of the box, away from tradition, and achieve astronomical results. How have they been able to utilise mass consumer spending to channel it to those in need? What are the innovative strategies and mindsets they've used to get past the obstacles in their path? And what can any business owner do better when it comes to embedding true purpose into actual action, and not just have purpose "painted on the wall"?
This is a rollercoaster of an episode of The Make It Happen Show suited for a rollercoaster of a journey — take a listen if you too, want to break out of the mold and do the 'impossible', just as Daniel and Thankyou have.
