Philanthropy is seen as an industry that can not be business and revenue focussed. Taylor flips the model on its head – letting people know that first, it is ok to make money while doing good and secondly, you can make big impact and live a lifestyle as any other entrepreneur and not the stereotypical "do-gooder" that is always portrayed.
Philanthropy, and fundraising have been stuck in the dark ages. The industry relies heavily on tactics that have been around since the 1930s, the lack of innovation and risk taking has made the entire industry stagnant. Taylor uses Change Heroes as a case study to demonstrate the new opportunities that are upon us in the world of fundraising and social entrepreneurism.
As our world is faced with increasing social challenges, Taylor demonstrates the importance of social innovation and providing platforms for every individual to make a lasting difference.

Taylor is a disruptive social entrepreneur and thought leader who is reinventing the way we give. He has presented at the United Nations, Harvard, Cornell, Princeton, and NYU on how to scale proven impact and a highly profitable company simultaneously. Change Heroes won 'Best Social Enterprise' at the Startup World Finals in San Francisco, and has funded 120 schoolhouses in 8 countries for 120,000 children.
All that being said - Taylor is equally happy to have surfed the longest wave in the world (in Peru), meditated with Zen monks in Japan, trained as a yoga teacher in Costa Rica, run with the bulls in Spain, built schools in Kenya, stepped foot on every continent, including Antarctica and explored 35 countries.Hide the rest
