In a world that often celebrates the riches of the few, it’s refreshing to come across individuals like Trisha Bailey, Ph.D., a force of change and inspiration in the realm of social entrepreneurship. Founded in August 2020, Trisha Bailey, Ph.D. is not just a company; it’s a movement. With a wealth of experiences that span the globe and a heartfelt mission to help 100,000 people over the next ten years, Trisha Bailey is setting out to prove that entrepreneurs at the grassroots level are the next greatest generation.

Trisha Bailey’s mission is bold and inspiring: she aims to help 100,000 people in the next ten years through first and second-degree connections. By 2033, she envisions reaching 100,000 entrepreneurs annually, each with access to at least 100 beneficiaries. These entrepreneurs, according to Trisha, are the unsung heroes who strive to uplift their communities through their businesses. 

Trisha seeks to assist 20-30-year-olds in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East to turn their dreams of social enterprises into reality. These individuals are local entrepreneurs who are committed to helping their own people, often driven by a sense of mission or faith. Trisha helps them gain clarity about themselves, their teams, and their enterprises, bridging the gap between where they are and where they aspire to be.

However, Trisha knows that good intentions alone aren’t enough. These entrepreneurs need education to make a significant impact. Education is the bridge that connects their aspirations to reality, and this is where Trisha’s work truly shines.

Trisha Bailey’s journey is a testament to the power of empathy and action. In her twenties, she embarked on a solo soul-searching adventure that took her to developing countries around the world. She immersed herself in the cultures, challenges, and aspirations of the people she met. This unique exposure to the world’s less fortunate ignited a passion within her. It drove her to see the potential for positive change that resided within individuals who were often overlooked by the traditional business world.

Her subsequent experiences are a testament to her entrepreneurial spirit. She has owned various businesses, from financial services to federal contracting. Each venture brought its own set of lessons and challenges, but Trisha’s mission was always clear: to make a difference.

Trisha’s academic journey is equally impressive. She pursued a Ph.D. in international business, with a specific focus on social enterprises. This decision wasn’t driven by academic curiosity alone; it was a means to equip herself with the tools and knowledge to effect real change in the world.

Her educational journey was complemented by her experiences in the field. Trisha is not an armchair theorist but a hands-on advocate for change. She has visited numerous social enterprises in person and has actively participated on the boards of these organizations. This combination of theory and practice has equipped her to be a true advocate for global enterprises.

Trisha’s epiphany occurred in her thirties when she began to travel for a purpose. Her journeys took her to Southeast Asia, where she met remarkable business owners. These entrepreneurs were not just in business for profit; they used their enterprises as vehicles to provide jobs, education, and skills to their communities. Witnessing their unwavering commitment to social impact, Trisha felt compelled to support and empower these visionary leaders.

Recognizing the misalignment of one of her own businesses with her core values, even as it thrived financially, Trisha made a difficult choice. She decided to let go of a venture that did not resonate with her mission and instead focused her energy and expertise on championing the cause of impact entrepreneurs.

Trisha Bailey, Ph.D. offers a range of services to impact entrepreneurs aimed at nurturing their potential and driving their businesses toward lasting social change. These services include business coaching and mentoring, advocating for global enterprises, and providing an Avant-Garde Entrepreneurs online curriculum, a six-week program that features live weekly sessions for participants and monthly meetings. It is a comprehensive educational tool designed to equip them with the skills and knowledge needed to drive change in their communities.

What sets Trisha apart as a mentor and advocate is her unique teaching style, which combines strategy, science, and spirituality. She boasts a wealth of hands-on experience in every role of the companies she assists in building. This experience equips her to cut through the noise and provide valuable insights to entrepreneurs, helping them run their companies efficiently, secure funding, satisfy their board members, and, most importantly, make a significant impact on society.

Trisha Bailey, Ph.D. is a beacon of hope in the world of social entrepreneurship.
