Send in your questions about how to create a career with impact to bebold@echoinggreen.org.

Question 1: I'd hibernated for twenty years as a home maker and due to changed circumstances that I found myself in I had to pursue a career to bring up my children all by myself. I was successful in this endeavor and have also completed an eight year stint in the social sector. I now want to set up my own nonprofit organization that will create resources for women, as well as help them set goals for themselves and become self-reliant. Where can I seek start-up funds for such an organization?

Question 2: Does an organization have to be nonprofit, or not-for-profit to be considered a social entrepreneurship project?

    In this economy, I think it's important to do what you're doing – entrepreneurship with a social conscience.

    According to the USA Today, “57% [of entrepreneurs] say they work “always” or “most of the time” on official holidays. Just 31% of total adults answered the same way… Slightly more than 60% of small-business owners say they toil six or seven days per week, while only 22% of the general population say they work that much.”

    However, they reap the rewards of their hard work, as I'm sure you know. It's a trade-off.

    In case you want to check that quote, you can check their website or view the recent Newsy story about Entrepreneurship, which has a number of other expert opinions on the subject.
