Meet The Social Entrepreneur Who Discovered A Problem Hiding In Plain Sight
There are lots of people who want to change the world—people who wish to use their time and talent to “do good.” But there’s no clear roadmap for how. Many social entrepreneurs, myself included, trace our journey back to a lightbulb moment where a combination of right-place-right-time and active curiosity suddenly illuminated a path forward. That’s what happened to Dr. Jordan Kassalow, an optometrist and founder of VisionSpring, a nonprofit dedicated to delivering affordable glasses and vision care to the world’s poor. Now, he’s written a book called Dare to Matter: Your Path to Making a Difference Now to help others find their lightbulb moment and use their talents for good.
