Today we are joined by Nivi Achanta, founder and CEO of Soapbox Project, making social impact easy for busy people, starting with bite-sized climate action plans!
During this conversation, Nivi tells us the story of what led her to start Soapbox and what she’s aiming to achieve with it. We touch on some of the reasons that people don’t take action and she shares which factors she believes have led to her success, as well as why you should just do things and see if they lead to your success.
We ask Nivi about her challenges and wins, why she felt that bringing Soapbox into the community space was the next step rather than just a newsletter, and what has been so exciting and productive about that process. She advocates for trusting your users and emphasizes the fact that community is about collaboration rather than control.
Nivi believes in positive messaging around social change and shares experiences that have motivated her to make a change. She shares some powerful advice, as well as all the details of her journey that will empower listeners to make a change.
