These Initiatives are Melding Business & Positive Change

This list of interviews with social entrepreneurs is brought to you by SocialBusiness.org, a place to find ideas, people and businesses that are creating positive social change through innovative and novel ideas that meld business principles with a variety of other areas that are typically seen as separate such as philanthropy, charity, human rights, the environment and social justice.

From socially conscious and eco-friendly headphone companies to global maternal health initiatives that are creating and sustaining a marketplace that makes resources more accessible, the projects here have a breadth of people behind them but these interviews with social entrepreneurs get at the inspiration behind one single person. Sometimes it's something typical, say, a yoga cliche, but other times, it's going out in the rain and screaming or something as simple as taking a few deep breaths.
