In this episode of Entrepreneurs For Good, I speak with Harris Guevarra, Founder of PH Drinks, about building a marketing and communications agency that is specialized around issues of corporate social responsibility, sustainability, and social innovation.
Through the interview we speak about his entrepreneurial path, as well as how social entrepreneurs can better leverage social media.
Internally, there were two really cool things that I appreciated about how Harris is “living” his purpose. The first is that while he runs a for profit business that works with large brands to communicate their stories, he provides probono services to mission driven organizations. The second is that he allows for his employees to remain off projects that are not aligned to their own values.
For me, those are both signs of an entrepreneur who has a high degree of self-awareness, and commitment to his values.
