Mr. Social Entrepreneur is Nathan A Webster. This podcast is for all who incorporate social good into their business. My goal is to share business resources I wish I had when I was a budding nonprofit founder clueless in the sea of competing charity and government. To be a visionary and executioner is hard, so I’m happy to share my mistakes with others so no one has to repeat them. Hence, why I started a podcast for social entrepreneurship.
I’m the Co-Founder and CEO at NW & Associates, LLC. My number one love is being a dad to all my kiddos, but when we’re not hanging out I’m focused on growing my business. When I need a break, I lean towards something sports-related like soccer, bowling, and fishing.
I can be somewhat obnoxious with my passion. I’m high energy because God’s grace and mercy has carried me a long way.
Breaking the Shell
God and I had a late-night session chat. Unbeknownst to me, God already chose my unorthodox career path of being an “official” entrepreneur by starting Dream Big Community Center. After many back-and-forth encounters of the journey being paved for me, I finally accepted my calling.
My nonprofit Dream Big gave me the platform in 2004.
As we became incorporated in 2006 and earned the 501c3 in 2007, we faced much opposition. In our journey of helping the youth and their families, I didn’t have much support. Hence, my self-appointed nickname Mr. Social Entrepreneur.
After a couple of years of delivering programs with partnering organizations, we served over 3,000 teens. Our reach grew from local to national. The success was unbelievable.
