Do you sometimes feel that you wish you could make a living from something more meaningful and impactful? So did Tamara.
Over a year ago Tamara Cohen decided she's moving to Israel after having a successful production career in LA, New York and London that included working with leading brands (MasterCard, Gillette, Converse) and leading artists (Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Mumford and Sons).
Although she was successful in her field, she decided she wants to transition to a field that has more meaning to her. She wanted to build a social enterprise and she knew that Israel will be the best place for her to find her co-founders. The rest was unknown. She left it all and started a process of exploring a path that is led by a social mission.
After meeting dozens of social entrepreneurs, impact investors and organizations - she decided the best place for her to build something meaningful is to move to Israel. Today she is leading a social business she co-founded with 2 partners, they already received an investment from a leading firm, yet the startup is still in stealth mode, so stay tuned. In this episode we talk about the definition of social impact, how do you combine "doing good and doing well" through building businesses with social impact, and about the personal transition process Tamara did that included moving a country, changing industries and becoming an entrepreneur in the peak of a different career.
If you want to start working for a social impact mission and not sure what it means and what should you notice while you build yourself in this field- this episode is for you.
