Good morning, Paul! I had the opportunity to speak with Angela Barbash recently. She’s the CEO of an Ypsilanti based company founded in 2013, known as Revalue, and they have a unique approach to their business of investment advisory that blends a desire to provide high value investment guidance and money management with a focus on doing good for the broader community. In fact, when you go to their website, it opens up with a statement that says, “make money and save the world”. How about that, Paul? Curious? Lean in, this is for real. And what I love about this story is how you can be both in business with a desire to make real profits and yet serve the greater good at the same time. Angela, tell us about your business. Angela: We provide financial planning and investment management and research and due diligence services for value driven investors. And those can be folks that are wanting to invest in the public markets in ways that are aligned with their values, or they’re wanting to invest in the private community markets.   Jeff: I just have to ask – Angela, what drives your client base to want to participate in your model versus the more traditional, pure chase for the return on investment model?   Angela: All of our investors are impact oriented. They want to see their money go to places that are having a positive impact on the world. Community impact investors, I think are more likely to want to be creative with you and to help you get what you need, because they wouldn’t be doing this if it was really just about money. I think if they were just after money, they’d be in the public markets. That’s the opportunity that you have when you’re working with community impact investors, is that at the end of the day, they want to see you succeed.   So it’s time someone tells you that you shouldn’t blend a desire to contribute to the greater good with a for-profit business. Take a page out of Angela’s book. She’s doing just that, and you can too. Interested? reach out to Angela and her [email protected]   I’m Jeff Sloan, founder and CEO of StartupNation.com, and that’s today’s Business Beat, on the Great Voice of the Great Lakes, WJR.
