Re-Imagining Non Profit Potential Susanna Spiccia from Reimagine ATL
Original Air Date: March 29, 2017
Host of Business Intentional, Shelby Larson interviews Susanna Spiccia from Reimagine ATL about her amazing Non-Profit that helps the youth in our country have a voice. I first met Susanna at the Spanx headquarters in Atlanta. The Sara Blakely Foundation teamed up with the Center for Civil Innovation and Susanna was one of the awesome female social entrepreneurs doing amazing work.
I was immediately drawn to Susanna and her organization, especially her vision for No Comment, a news media organization run solely by teens covering topics from teen homelessness, gender challenges, to mental health issues that are currently a struggle for the youth in our society. I wanted to interview her for two reasons:
Her organization is one that I TRULY believe in and is worth bringing awareness to.
She has attracted impressive donors, support and celebrity attention for her organization that anyone with a business, especially a non-profit, would LOVE to do.
