Intelligence & Compassion in Action is a tool to empower the aspiring social entrepreneur, with real guidance as to how, and why, social entrepreneurship works. It expounds a new Seven Pillar methodology, inspired by the wisdom of former President James Earl “Jimmy” Carter. Written by the founder of The Elfenworks Foundation, Dr. Lauren Speeth, who lives the lessons she teaches in this book daily, the insights within these pages have come from Speeth’s years of experience in technology, management, and the nonprofit world, as well as from insights gained in interviews with extraordinary social entrepreneurs.


The author has organized her guidebook well…Those contemplating start-up of projects designed to help others will be heartened by Speeth’s manual.” – Barbara Barbara Bamberger Scott – The U.S. Review of Books (Recommended by the US Review of Books! )
