Values vs. Profits

Is it possible to run a profitable business while putting your values first? Absolutely.

We’ve worked with hundreds of business owners across a number of industries. Most of us have been business owners ourselves. And we’ve yet to meet a business owner who set sail on their grand entrepreneurial adventure just to make money. There’s no question that operating a successful business ranks high on most owners’ to-do lists, but rarely (if ever) is it the only goal motivating all that blood, sweat, and tears. Far more often than not, people who are passionate enough about their business venture are driven by a desire to make a difference. What they’re doing means something to them, which in turn means good things for the people they serve.

You don’t have to sell plastic-free shampoo bars or Teslas or invent a solution to world hunger to make a significant positive impact on the world around you. Seemingly normal businesses do extraordinary things every day. From shopkeepers to CPAs and real estate developers, a smart, proactive legal strategy is an integral part of making sure the values you hold are baked into the heart of your business. There’s no reason to sacrifice your values when you can make bank while you’re doing good for your customers, your community, and the world.

Our clients show us every day how important it is to do the footwork to make sure your business is formed with your values in mind. Maybe you’re interested in making plastic-free products, or want your employees to receive certain benefits because you know it’s the right thing to do. Perhaps you have a goal for your manufacturing to be carbon neutral by 2030. Whatever makes you sleep well at night takes more than basic legal services. We take the time to understand what matters to you, so we can advise you in ways that will make your business profitable and purposeful.

Business is a critical aspect of economics and economics is, at its heart, the distribution of resources. Unfortunately, economics completely ignores the resources themselves—the trees, employees, minerals, oceans, or even the air we breathe. We’re here to support a more worldly view of economics. Together we can put the socially responsible initiatives you care most about in the driver’s seat while keeping profits front and center. Our membership model allows us to dig deep to understand the heart and soul of your business. Our team of advisors will care about your business just as much as you do so we can generate ideas, give you context for important decisions, and brainstorm with you to keep your business sustainable and successful. Our clients know their investment is solid, not unlike the equipment needed to manufacture their products or the technology they use to power operations. Smart business decisions begin with strategic legal support. Big dreams don’t become big realities without key advisors. If you’re ready to meet your Legal Dream Team, schedule a call.
