The Promise of a Pencil by Adam Braun

The Promise of a Pencil by Adam Braun

( ) Any narrative of beginning a business from scratch tends to be inspiring. Well, that is, unless you stole someone else’s business – like in the case of McDonald’s. But in this case, despite growing up as an unarguably privileged individual, Adam Braun’s story is uplifting for any would-be entrepreneur.

He established a nonprofit with only his own ambition and compassion leading the charge. However, his great social support system did enable him to be as successful as he was. Braun’s nonprofit, Pencils of Promise, ended up opening over 380 schools across the world in developing nations. It’s both motivating and scary to hear someone’s courageous story of building a social good-based business.
