After working as a marketing director and helping for-profit companies for over a decade, Rianne Klein Geltink got an itch to take a year-long sabbatical and go on an epic road trip across Australia. When the road trip turned out not to be what she expected, she packed up and left for Bali, where she discovered two things that changed her life: digital nomadism and social entrepreneurship. In the months that followed, Rianne explored how to launch her first online business. She created Impact Business Base — an online membership community for startup social impact entrepreneurs. Today, she joins the podcast to talk about how she found her vision, why it’s okay to adjust as you go, and why the world is up for people who want to do good.
