Grand Potential Podcast


What a positive and gracious master class with GC member Deb Alcadinho of Business 4 Social Good, and Julie Ann of Influence Publishing.

We know you received many brilliant insights into finding a cause you are passionate about, crafting your grand giving story, and finding ways through collaboration to share it with the world. The recording will be up in the Hub soon to re-watch and review the story framework.


Some highlights include:

  • Creating a Grand Giving business is a new way to do business to create a remarkable impact with a soul filling cause.
  • Find a cause to support is WIN, WIN , win, win, win ,win, win.
  • Your cause that you are passionate about doesn’t have to be the same as your business.
  • Stories are important to connect us to our audience.Start by defining your why.
  • Your why and passion will connect you with more like-minded people than any “marketing” photo and “special” pricing.
  • Using a story framework and journaling answers to Deb’s questions can give you direction.
  • Create an aspirational statement that shares your passion, why you exist, the problem you solve, the difference you want to make and what you want to be best known for?
  • In the breakouts we shared so many great collaborative ideas and how you can creatively support charities.
  • You can amplify your story with creative collaboration and Julie Ann shared many ideas.

Love it! – Sandy Goe, Connections Catalyst
