Ryan Scott

Amidst the consumerism that tends to envelop us during the holidays, December has also become a time when we’re asked to consider the importance of donating our time, talent and treasure to the betterment of the world. #GivingTuesday, a recently instituted global day dedicated to giving back, was created as a counterpoint to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Women’s Entrepreneur Day is another new seasonal event that celebrates and advances the work of female entrepreneurs, with the ultimate goal of empowering women and lifting them out of poverty.
