New York, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/19/2021 --TED Fellow and CEO of Practice Makes Perfect, Karim Abouelnaga, has written a book for aspiring business professionals and those looking to build purpose-driven social enterprises. The Purpose-Driven Social Entrepreneur was written for anyone finding difficulty in pursuing their passion and realizing their purpose.
"One of the main reasons I wrote this book was because I wanted to share a framework and blueprint for people looking to build purpose-driven social enterprises," stated Karim. "In today's world companies have to do more than just generate a profit – they need to have a dual focus on both profit and purpose – addressing both pain points and social problems. I want to make sure that those entering the business know you do not have to compromise one for the other, and that with clarity around your purpose anything is possible."
This book is a must read for anyone looking to take their business and their life to the next level. Through the book, Karim covers topics from the formative early steps that help someone reflect on their purpose and provides additional tips for those looking to enhance their business over time. Karim's determination for success is clear on every page as he walks readers through the highs and lows of entrepreneurship, significant milestones in his own journey, and methods to help anyone take the step of speaking their purpose into existence with the same conviction he has spent his life building. For those who already have a business in mind, or who are stuck in the rut of figuring out where to go in life, this book is the perfect guide to finding your goals and sticking to them.
As a child of Egyptian immigrants, Abouelnaga worked hard to earn his desired education despite the difficulties that came with the opportunity gap. After earning over $250,000 to fund his own education he began Practice Makes Perfect at 18 years old to make sure that education was possible for students at low-income schools. Now, with The Purpose-Driven Social Entrepreneur, he seeks to help individuals set themselves on a path of intention and success.
