Entrepreneur Ethics: A Month Long Exploration

Happy March! After all this leaping and loving I hope we are ready to dive straight into exploring Entrepreneur Ethics. Last year’s ethics theme and ongoing posts about ethics are some of our most popular posts of all time and something that is continually being raised in our online and offline creative communities. This month we will investigate ethics with humor and compassion; from Pinterest, fine print and copyright law to non-spammy marketing, online etiquette, and building a creative business with integrity-we are jumping into this topic with both feet and a whole lot of heart.  I hope you will join us as we dig deeper into the ethics of entrepreneurship!

What separates creative entrepreneurs from the corporate monoliths of the old economy? Our ability to define business on our own terms. We are not confined by outdated models of profit over people and can create businesses that sustain us and our communities. Together we can chart out some shared values and ethics for what this changing economy can look like and the part we want to play. Along with our always amazing contributor posts this month I’ve lined up a group of insightful creative business ‘ethics experts’ to share their knowledge with guest posts and Twitter chats!
