Eboo Patel and IFYC set a phenomenal example to other organizations and entrepreneurs on why building a socially conscious business can have benefits that exceed much further than profit margins
CHICAGO (PRWEB) December 15, 2011
Trep Life, an original series giving viewers a unique, 360-degree view of what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur, launched the seventh episode of Season One featuring founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC), Eboo Patel.
“Trep Life is a great behind the scenes look at being an entrepreneur – the challenges and exciting opportunities that make every day an adventure. It was a pleasure to be a part of this series along-side a number of accomplished professionals making their dreams a reality in their own unique ways,” said Eboo Patel, founder of IFYC.
Here are some quick highlights of the episode:
The Grind: The constant struggle between family/work balance and learning from advisors about the importance of inspiring through storytelling - Eboo shares his admiration for Apple
The Hustle: As an entrepreneur it is challenging to stay the course - Eboo talks about his own personal struggle to remain focused while constantly having the urge to pursue new opportunities
The Payoff: At 17, Eboo had that “click moment” when watching a presentation and quickly realized what he wanted to do and a picture of what his future looked like - something he inspires to create for the world through his efforts at IFYC
“Eboo Patel and IFYC set a phenomenal example to other organizations and entrepreneurs on why building a socially conscious business can have benefits that exceed much further than profit margins,” said Scotty Cadenhead, Trep Life executive producer and founder.
“The IFYC leaders and employees have taken this purpose and turned it into a personal mission - which in turn will drive this organization to great heights of achievement.”
