2 Life offers three programs
built on principles associated with human
behavior theory, social entrepeneurship and the Seven Jewels™noted below. "Behaviors are not
determined by either evolution (nature) or
environment (nurture). Instead, they are influenced by two factors: (1)
The ways we like
to perceive the world, and (2) The opportunities our physical and
environments provide for satisfying our preferences. These two factors
may vary in different cultures, but fundamental human preferences and
goals are very similar".
As a nonprofit organization, we recognize that we are more than just a cause. There is a way to combine the very best of the not-for-profit, philanthropic world with the very best of the for-profit, enterprising world. This hybrid is the wave of the future for both profit and nonprofit companies and will be led by innovators described in Daniel Pink's A Whole New Mind.
Here's 2 Life was founded as a vehicle to leverage theories of human behavior and stimulate a shift toward achieving balance. This hybrid organization operates in the spirit of social entrepreneurship. A social entrepreneur is someone who recognizes a social problem and uses entrepreneurial principles to organize, create, and manage a venture to make social change . Whereas business entrepreneurs typically measure performance in profit and return, social entrepreneurs assess their success in terms of the impact they have on society. While social entrepreneurs often work through nonprofits and citizen groups, many work in the private and governmental sectors.
