Co-author and recently awarded Fulbright Scholar Mike Caslin said, “It’s great that we now offer “Get To Wow!” on easily accessible e-platforms, enabling global readers to identify their passions and become active social entrepreneurs. There are many textbooks out there on social entrepreneurism, but none for the wider market that offers practical advice and guidance for starting up an actual social business venture. This eBook allows users to move at their own pace, supported by GCSEN offerings, coaching, videos and supplementary material easily accessed on our website, www.gcsen.com. We invite readers to take the journey and Get To Wow with us!”
