Having worked with thousands of business owners, Lisa Mininni knows that successful business owners create a habit to give back. They give back to non-profits and causes. Those non-profits help their communities. Those communities know what it's like to be helped and pay it forward.

And, through this Ripple Effect, we can achieve global peace. We know that if global peace is to be realized it will be started by business owners.

You see, business owners know what its like to achieve big goals. Most importantly, they also know the leap of faith it takes to reach their goals. While reaching their goals, they realize the importance of giving back.

Our business owners also have a big contribution they want to make in the world through the work they do and that's what the Wake Up Profitable Boot Camp is all about. That is why they attend. They are interested in making a big contribution through their business.

So you see, the Ripple Effect needs to start somewhere. Why not here?

Each year at Excellerate Associates' Wake Up Profitable Boot Camp for Business Owners, a non-profit receives a portion of the proceeds from each registration. Each registrant not only becomes part of the Ripple Effect, but learns about integrated giving as part of the success principles of the very System Lisa and her Lab Leaders teach to business owners.

The 2017 Excellerate Associates Charity of Choice is: GIRL SCOUTS HEART OF MICHIGAN
