Day one of JVA’s Social Enterprise Academy has come to a close.

Thought of the day: We’re always searching for something new, something fresh and innovative that’s going to set us apart bring money in the door. What if something new isn’t what we actually need?

Our organizations have assets. Take the time to think about those assets we already have and how they can translate into earned income. For example:

  • If you own building space, consider a shared space model.
  • You might have an existing client base that trusts you. Do you need to break your back looking for new clientele?
  • Whatever resources you have, find ways to utilize them to their maximum potential.

There’s nothing like being resourceful.

It’s important to be forward-thinking but it’s also important to look at what you already have and think about how you can utilize those assets.
