Do Good While Doing Well

Invest for Change, Reap Financial Rewards, and Increase Your Happiness

Have you ever wondered how you, as just one person, can make impactful change? Really make a difference?

Unleash your impact potential with Do Good While Doing Well, a groundbreaking guide designed for those who are eager to make a lasting, meaningful difference but are unsure how to start. While conventional wisdom may have you believe that charity is the primary means for effecting change, this book disrupts that notion and introduces you to the transformative power of angel investing.

Thanks to regulatory shifts by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), where Marcia Dawood serves as an advisor, investing in early-stage companies is no longer confined to the wealthy. Anyone can invest in startup companies for as little as fifty dollars through equity crowdfunding.

This book serves as your comprehensive “why-to” manual for angel investing, illuminating how your individual financial contributions can go far beyond monetary value. Whether you’re new to investing or simply looking to align your portfolio with your values, Do Good While Doing Well will equip you with the necessary tools and knowledge.

By the time you turn the last page, you’ll not only understand the mechanics of angel investing, but you’ll also possess the confidence to use your financial leverage as a force for good in the world—all while earning both financial and emotional rewards. Transform your passion into impact; let your investments be the change you wish to see in the world.
