#28 Berry Liberman: building the impact economy, with love

Berry Liberman is a passionate advocate for sustainability, she’s co-founder of the Small Giants impact investment firm, she’s the editor-in-chief of Dumbo Feather and, most importantly, she tells it how it is.

Berry and her husband Danny Almagor founded Small Giants in 2007 to support a new breed of businesses, that are focussed on empathy and building strong communities. They fund and manage a portfolio of companies as tools for social and environmental impact, to shift away from blind faith in economics, and instead embrace ecology as the path to living a life of passion and purpose.

On this episode…

This was a cathartic experience for me. It was an exploration of what I want to achieve with the show, but also the principles that our economy are founded on. Berry doesn’t hold back, she speaks with conviction, and her words are backed by action.

Her businesses are built on the foundation of the old, but this is not a retrofit, this is a revolution.

My key takeaway this week…

“There’s enough for everyone’s need, but not for their greed.”

Autobiography, by Carl Jung

The Book of Joy

By: Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, and Douglas Abrams

In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu travelled to the Dalai Lama’s home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness’s eightieth birthday and to create this book as a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: how do we find joy in the face of life’s inevitable suffering?
