One of the most rewarding things about getting to know so many entrepreneurs is seeing first-hand how many of them are focused on so much more than just financial results. So many of the folks we connect with are focused on having a positive social impact on their community or the world at large. Check out some of these amazing folks below.

Chris Birky | Spiritual Guide & Integration Coach

I work with clients 1on1 to help them experience peace now even in the midst of their chaotic world. We then work on anchoring and integrating that peace into their day to day experience. This person then goes into their daily experience being more peaceful so each person they interact with they invite the other person to feel a little more peaceful just by their presence.

Tracy Lynn Wallace | Self-Love Mentor /Life Coach

When I began my coaching career 10 years ago, I did not realize the impact it would have on my own life by healing traumas and old unconscious programming for myself as well as my teen and adult children. As I have been on my journey of awakening to self-love and forgiveness, it has opened my eyes to the emotional trauma of fear, shame, loneliness, and aggression that surrounds us in the world, especially as a result of COVID, political issues, and racial injustices.

Megan Smones | Founder and Educator

In Arizona, everywhere you look, you see information about our failing education system. We are stuck in tradition. There is a lack of qualified individuals within the system and we are failing our children. I have designed the perfect education program for Arizona kids. Instead of staying in a traditional mold, I thought outside the box and dove into the world of custom, private education. My private school offers an innovative, student centered approach to help children reach their full potential during their foundational years. Read more>>

Carolyn Whittico | Illustrator + Art Educator

A Cup of Cloudy holds the value that natural spaces must be protected. When I was growing up, I spent a lot of time in the woods. We made make-believe houses from patches of swamp trees and went on scavenger hunts to find wildflowers for the kitchen table. That’s why a lot of the artwork I produce is focused on state parks, natural spaces, and plants. And it’s why 20 percent of art print sales are donated to Michigan State Parks — there should always be land where children can go and discover nature. When children love nature, they respect it and protect it as adults. Read more>>

Caitlynn Driggs | Photographer

One of my favorite things about photography is helping others to feel comfortable and confident with themselves. Taking photographs allows the world to see diversity and understand the beauty each person has and that is so cool to me! Read more>>

Eric Caroffino | Musician, Educator and Traveller

eCaroffino Creatives has one consistent goal: Open avenues of artistic experimentation and expression. We do this by interviewing, reviewing, educating and collaborating! As most artists encounter rich and interesting experiences, people and places, their art reflects the evolution of intellectual space. The Creatives team should always maintain a round-table attitude because “Better than” and “Worse than” comparisons have no place in the artistic sphere – we benefit the community and the world by encouraging direct, concise, constructive feedback on artwork.

East Valley United Black Firefighters | Affinity group

Our main focus as a group is to be visible in our community and the involvement and development of our African American communities. There is a perception that minorities, more specifically black youths are not afforded the career opportunities that those of more affluent groups are. About 7 to 12 percent of the fire service is made up of African Americans… we strive to show our community the options they have for a career field, both in and out of the public safety realm, and put them in touch with the appropriate mentor to make their goals a reality.

Desiree Nerey – Davis | Online Radio Host & Entrepreneur

My business helps the world by offering my platform to get artists music out to share with the world. Music submissions if they fit the program will be aired to my worldwide Online Radio Show (One Solid Vibe) on It’s at no cash value expense right now. I only ask for the artist to call in or send me an audio recording of their intro before their song plays and give a shout out to the show. Read more>>
