The three principles “to get rich”

Answering to some people who asked me… yes, I’m still here, but it’s been hard months and, this time, I haven’t been able to write as much as I would have liked. Besides, I remind you that this coming November 2024 I will celebrate 10 years of this blog, it wouldn’t seem right to stop right now, don’t you think?

Today I want to share with you a video from TEDxAlcoi, by Rafa Fergom. I watched it a few days ago and I liked what he tells and how he tells it. Rafa shares with us the three principles to get rich, get richer, or just, the three principles of social entrepreneurship.

I don’t know if you know TED (I highly recommend them). They are short talks and this one that I share with you today, could not be otherwise. I encourage you to watch the video and listen to Rafa’s words. Among other things because you will discover that sharing is the best way to compete.

Here is a summary of the three principles:

Principle #1

  • Helping is a very good strategy to transcend.
  • It is better giving to share (love), and not to receive (to expect something in return), because this way of giving activates the flame of entrepreneurship, uncertainty, creativity, growth and development.

Principle #2

  • We should do what makes us happy, useful and passionate, because from that way of doing, in return, we will receive something.

Principle #3

  • Let’s do something bearing in mind the collective benefit, making other people feeling useful, recognized and valued.
  • Let’s believe in the strength of the community. If something is not good for everyone, it is not good for others either.

Thank you, Rafa, for sharing your story and for reminding us that  the person is not rich because he/she has more money than anyone else.

I’ll be back soon, I promise.

Thank you for still being there.

Contributing to the social transformation from social entrepreneurship

On Wednesday the 21st of June, my first doctoral student (already a PhD) Nerea Sáenz defended the thesis entitled: La formación en emprendimiento social en la educación superior: competencias, metodologías de enseñanza-aprendizaje e instrumentos de evaluación. Estudio de casos en dos universidades europeas. (Training in social entrepreneurship in higher education: competencies, teaching and learning methodologies and assessment tools. Study of the cases in two European universities).

Today not only I present you some of the main ideas of the thesis, but also her author, of whom I feel so proud. Why would it be? (more…)
