The Social Capitalist is an audiobook about how two ordinary people turn a huge social problem into a solution - not only for themselves, but for thousands of others. From nightclub owner (Josh) and law enforcement officer (Lisa) to social entrepreneurs and founders of Journey Healing Centers (accredited private drug and also treatment centers)... they turned their lives around and, using the core principles of the Rich Dad philosophy, are building businesses that bring families back together. As business missions reflect a higher purpose, the Lannons share "why we do what we do." And like movements across the world (and in our own backyards) they address the growing need for purpose in our lives and the opportunities that can be found in addressing the needs and challenges we see in our global society. Their story will strike a chord with millions as Social Entrepreneurship emerges as the next mega trend of a social movement.
