[E4C8] Herding Jaguars & Empowering the Masses to Unleash Positive Social Change


Herding Jaguars & Empowering the Masses to Unleash Positive Social Change

We are here today with Darian Rodriguez Heyman, a social innovator with a long history of building businesses and creating community. Darian is the chief development officer for Better World Wireless, the first mission-driven telecom company aiming to simultaneously serve you as non-profit and donate one million smartphones to moms, teachers, and farmers within the next ten years.

He is the co-founder of Social Media for Non-Profits, a conference series devoted to strategies and tactics around using social media for social good. For many years, Darian served as the Executive Director for Craigslist Foundation where he helped launched their non-profit bootcamp, educated and inspired over 10,000 non-profit leaders.

His best selling book, Non-Profit Management 101: A Complete and Practical Guide for Leaders and Professionals includes practical tips and tools from 50 recognized experts across 35 comprehensive topics.

In this episode, Darian is going to share with us:

  • What it takes to herd jaguars to create a ground breaking work for social change
  • Why taking a six-month sabbatical is a great way to check out while checking in
  • How to dream your dreams with open eyes so you can make your dreams come true
  • Why doing less can actually be the key to making a bigger impact in the world
  • How to be that non-profit that empowers people in lasting ways rather than enabling a culture of handouts.
