Hey everyone. I wanted to jump in quickly let you know about the release of the audio version of my book, The Entrepreneur Ethos, narrated by David A. Conatser. If you want to support the show, you can buy it wherever audiobooks are sold. Links are also in the show notes.
Now on to my guest for today is Ozzy Flowers, co-founder of The Good Fight.
Ozzy knew in college he wanted to do something to make a difference. After earning an MBA, he soon came to the conclusion that he needed to be an entrepreneur and founded and ran a marketing agency. When Covid hit, though, he realized he had to make a change, as his agency focused on leisure travel. He’s used the opportunity to go back to his desire to find solutions for problems in the world. He applies what he’s learned in marketing to figure out how to improve the digital marketing space, help companies, and also help causes he cares about.
The Good Fight has developed a method to both engage consumers and also give both businesses and consumers ways to donate to charitable causes. Ozzy and his cofounder developed their business to address three problems: one, the weariness factor for consumers in online marketing; two, the struggle for charities to raise funds; and three, the need for companies to stand out.
By combining company advertising with people’s desire to help others, The Good Fight hopes to be a solution to all three of these problems. Ozzy is a prime example of entrepreneurs looking at the current crisis and taking on the challenge of doing better, and finding solutions to problems.
Now let’s get better together.
Actions to Try or Advice to Take
- It’s all about mindset. “We have an option in times of chaos to either decide that we're going to move forward and see an opportunity or revel in the miseries of the past,” says Flowers.
- If you’re experiencing discomfort about some aspect of growing, consider the bigger picture. Keeping the end in mind will help you meet challenges and keep moving forward.
- Flowers believes the majority of people want to help others. How might this attitude be used to improve what you have to offer? How are you helping others in what you do, whether it’s directly or indirectly? How would that change how you approach each day?
