In this presentation, Jodi discusses how to market for social good and the necessary combination of passion, determination, perseverance, and grit needed to create change while running a successful business.

Jodi was not convinced and knew mainstream ideas never create change. By 2015, she made significant strides and her product was launched in Walmart stores.
