#152 In case you missed it: Revolutionising investment for good on Going Conscious
This episode is a recap of four conversations I’ve had with incredible pioneers of finance for people and planet. Impact investing, but not just done the same old way. Each is creating something completely different and truly new. And each is also a person I consider to be very special and am blessed to have as a friend.   You’ll just hear a snippet of each conversation, so you can then go and listen to the whole episodes you feel drawn to. Now that we have over 150 episodes, we occasionally make a summary episode to help you navigate the library which still remains highly informative and relevant.   In episode #148, Patrick Somerhausen, co-founder and -CEO of Funds for Good, talks about honour loans where they give entrepreneurs in need loans that they only pay back if they can. 92% come back, to go round again to another entrepreneur in need. He also talks about “funds for love” which is a beautiful concept and words you don’t typically hear together in finance!    You’ll hear from Jacqueline van den Ende who, in episode #143, shares how she built Carbon Equity so far, the innovative platform enabling private individuals to invest in breakthrough climate tech. We talk about how to build something that outlives you, a new perspective on money greater than money itself, shared ownership structures, and legacy thinking, as well as getting personal and vulnerable at the end of the episode.   Episode #135 with Brenden Keon is close to my heart as Brenden is my partner at our fund Barefoot Ventures, and he shares how his journey from finance to permaculture brought him to designing a new model for finance that can be truly regenerative - that’s when we met a couple of years ago.  We discuss some of the core principles and thinking underpinning our fund.    Finally in episode #129, Monika Vollmer shares how you can develop personally through investing, the challenges of changing rapidly, and how to feel into a company you believe in when investing, with this less tangible side being key to investing as well as the rational and analytical.   I loved having all of these conversations, and together they make a rich tapestry of a future of finance that looks very different to the system today. Enjoy!   Please let me know in a short review which episode, guest or takeaway grabs your attention, and always feel free to reach out to me on instagram or linkedin with any questions.   To listen to the full episodes, search for:   #148 From investing to society: Loans of honour with Patrick Somerhausen #143 From investor to founder: A new perspective on capital with Jacqueline van den Ende #135 From finance to impact investing: Stewarding regenerative business with Brenden Keon #129 From business to investing: The personal side of positive impact with Monika Vollmer   Discover show notes, book recommendations and more on www.goingconscious.com.   Connect with Nikki: Instagram & LinkedIn @nikkitrottwww.consciousaccelerator.com

Since she was in the process of childbirth, she has been singing channelled songs, and sometimes feels called to share them with others, which have been having intriguing impacts. She wanted to bring this to the community here on Going Conscious for this year’s meditation episode.   We invite you to give yourself these short minutes to ground and align yourself whenever you feel called to. Do whatever feels good to you as you listen - lie down and close your eyes, sit still, dance, sing, or scream. Whatever feels right, go for it wholeheartedly! Just as Nikki has done here to create this improvisation for you.   And please do give this little gift to anyone you know who could benefit from it by sharing this episode with your friends..   Please come back and listen again and again.   Discover podcast notes, all episodes from Going Conscious, book recommendations and more on www.goingconscious.com.   Connect with Nikki: Instagram @nikkitrottLinkedIn Nikki Trottwww.consciousaccelerator.com
