Posted by Huibert Fousert on
*That there are some amazing businesses in the world doing good and they are worth supporting.
Here is what we, Kairos Traders, learned in 2016:
*That Freedom Businesses (those engaged in the issue of human trafficking) are a small percentage of social enterprises.
*That scarves sell.
*That there are consumers who want their purchase to support a good cause and that they don't know where to start in making that purchase.
*To weigh down your display if you are outdoors and its windy :)
*That earrings sell.
*That you never know what event, or connection, will make the difference for your work.
*Relationships and connections only come when you are out working and sharing your story.
*Everything takes longer than you think it will.
*You can accomplish a lot more with the help of others.
*Just because something is a good idea doesn't mean it is the best use of our time.
*We have a lot more to learn.
