MSMP 127: Paul Rodney Turner on Social Entrepreneurship and Building Confidence and Turning Your Mind into Your Best Friend

Today, my guest for the Mads Singers Management Podcast is Paul Rodney Turner, social entrepreneur, author, and food yogi.

Paul is the CEO of the Kindly Ecosystem (also known as the Kindly Coin), intended to be the world's first social-impact cryptocurrency simultaneously sold on the Ethereum (ETH) and Binance Smart Chain (BSC) Blockchains. He is also the founder and president of feedOM. His mission is to help socially- responsible and conscious companies and consumers participate in a mutually profitable, output measurable humanitarian effort to end child hunger, animal abuse, and deforestation. He is also the president and founder of Food for Life Global and a caretaker for his wife's animal sanctuary.

Unlike traditional entrepreneurship, where people focus on earning a profit, social entrepreneurship focuses on creating social impact in a community, society, and even companies. The money a social entrepreneur makes will usually be used for their projects or programs before themselves because they are purpose-driven instead of money-driven.


While it may seem new, Paul believes that more companies and even entrepreneurs will adopt this mindset because Paul believes that more people are concerned about others and would instead care about causes. And with new technologies popping up, such as the blockchains, this will allow better transactions between the customers and companies. Despite being in an interconnected world, many of us have not been connected with our own selves because we are bombarded with information. However, once we recognize what energies are at play in our lives, we can control them and harness the fuel to work for us instead of against us. While many think of confidence as a quick burst of energy where it can be easily acquired, Paul says that we should change our mindset about it where it's seen as a physical productivity hack, but rather see it from a spiritual perspective and see ourselves like that of gods but in a smaller capacity.


While many people tend to use material or physical things as markers of wealth, one cannot have a fulfilling life if one does not get in tune with their spiritual side. We don't need to go to the most significant churches or temples. Simply pausing from time to time or helping others can get us in touch with our spiritual side.
