A Quote by Lewis Schiff on entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship, investing, investment, and savings

Those entrepreneurs who are successful and manage to build a business and a nest egg often manage to heap on even more risk when they decide how they're going to invest that nest egg. While building a successful business and managing your investment portfolio both require handling risk intelligently, they are very different activities. Entrepreneurs often fare worse than the average investor when it comes to making investments because many of the traits that make one a successful entrepreneur are precisely the traits that make one a disaster as an investor -- starting with an eagerness to put it all on the line.

A Quote by Brian Walker (CEO) on for-profit, business, conscious capitalism, good business, sustainbility, capital, investment, and corporate social responsibiity

As a for-profit entity, if you're successful in getting a good return on capital, you will attract more investment. You become a magnet for resources with which, in turn, you can do more. Taking that a step further, if you're a socially responsible for-profit, and you're successful in earning a return on capital, you will attract further investment, to create still more value, and be able to have a greater positive impact on society and the world. Essentially being a for-profit creates opportunity for doing greater good. And financial success as a for-profit with a social conscious carries greater credibility with your peers, potentially influencing actions of other businesses.

A Quote by Alex Steffen on environmentalism, work, and investment

There's more to being an environmentalist than occasionally signing an online petition and mailing your check to the Sierra Club. Really the most effective environmental actions you can take have to do with crafting your home and surroundings, your workplace decisions and your investment habits.
