Coming Out

After I supported some of my former Malawian students through secondary (high) school, I noticed a common outcome.  There were few jobs available in the cities hours away, and certainly no jobs in the village where my students’ family, friends and whole lives were.  I found it discouraging that education did not translate into opportunity for my students.

I always was skeptical of business for its profit motives and [what I saw as] apathy toward humanity and the environment.  But over the years, I learned that after health and education, commercial activity is critical to human life.  To explore how I might contribute to sustainable job creation in developing countries like Malawi, I started Slade Unlimited, LLC.

This blog will serve as a public journal for my upcoming trip to the Continent, and my hopeful transition into a successful, socially conscious entrepreneur.  I welcome your comments and thoughts along the way.
