“Impact investing” is one of the biggest buzzwords in finance today, touted as investing with the intention of generating positive and measurable social and environmental change in addition to monetary returns. Putting money into projects, businesses, and places that improve the lives of the people living there in addition to strengthening your investment portfolio sounds great…but there are plenty of pitfalls as well. One of the most inspiring locations for impact investing, but also one of the most misunderstood by the foreign investor, is sub-Saharan Africa.

In Digital Africa, Jesper Drescher, a successful investor in the African tech scene since 2013 and the chairman of three African tech companies, explains the potential and the perils of investing in sub-Saharan Africa. He goes into depth on what a potential investor needs to understand about sub-Saharan Africa before deciding to do business there: where the benefits and downsides, both evident and understated, lie; the special issues surrounding business creation, taxation, and hiring; and the dangers of letting the hype run away with your expectations. Most of all, Drescher outlines how digitalization is the key to creating the biggest impact possible with your time and money.

Whether it takes the form of digital money for people without access to formal banking, the increased ability for governments to collect taxes, or improving healthcare outcomes with minable data, digitalization is one the rise in sub-Saharan Africa. With Digital Africa as your guide to tech investment, your chances of making a real impact as an investor are on the rise.

Meet Bridgett Renay

After surviving a tour of duty in the Middle East, Bridgett Renay thought corporate America would be a piece of cake. Yeah …radioactive yellowcake! Though relieved to no longer wear thirty-five pounds of gear while patrolling the world’s most terrifying terrain, it would’ve served her just as well in the tiny cubicle she was shackled to for more than a decade. But each battle between herself and the powers that be taught her new entrepreneurial strategies – planning, automation, collaboration …the list goes on and on. And there’s no one she’d rather share the spoils of victory with than you.

The cornerstone of courage is optimism.

In 1992, at the end of the Cold War, Steven Myers became the first American since Charles Lindbergh in 1931, to pilot an aircraft into the Russian Kamchatka peninsula. There he formed one of the first post-Soviet era joint ventures—a pioneering, expansive, business enterprise with the potential to transform the lives of the people of the Russian Far East. 
 
Steve’s remarkable true story recounts the dramatic adventure, courageous entrepreneurship, and intrigue in the creation of a breakthrough business in a remote corner of the world, a wonderous place few people have been to or know anything about.

The underlying theme of the story is the clash of two vastly different cultures:   Americans, with go-for-broke, entrepreneurial “can do” attitudes, and Russians with a long, painful history of constraining rules, risk aversion, and fear. 

After years of hard work, just as the enterprise is about to achieve breakthrough success, an unexpected warning by US government agents alerts Myers that his life is in danger if he continues with his business activities in Russia. How he reacts, and what he does next, provides a gripping, dramatic climax to the story. 
 
 A timeless exploration of human conflict, determination, and power, this book will inspire adventurers, aviators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, politicians, and diplomats to push past their fears and take command of their dreams. After all, “the cornerstone of courage is optimism.”

Million Dollar Service Secrets: Systems to Do Less & Grow Fast

Million Dollar Service Secrets: Systems to Do Less & Grow Fast - ASIN B08DXWXNXT

You want more for your service business. As a matter of fact, you KNOW you were meant for more. 

Wherever you are on your entrepreneurial journey—you want more.

You’re ready to get off the “do everything myself while the employees get paid first and I get left over scraps” merry-go-round. 

You’re ready to own a REAL business with real systems and with REAL employees that give you freedom instead of sucking the life from you.

A business that doesn’t require you to “do the work.” That pays you exactly the same whether you’re in the office, spending time with your family, or on vacation.

A business that will make your in-laws, friends, and maybe even a couple enemies jealous. 

You want CONTROL over your life, your time, who you spend it with, where you spend it and of course, the money to make it all work!

The problem is, owning a service business hasn’t given you that time with your kids or your spouse. 

You’re working harder than ever but you’re not getting ahead financially. Maybe not even staying afloat.

The craziest part of this whole thing is… You wouldn’t give it up for the world.
