The Hedonisia Activist Entrepreneur Approach to Conscious Capitalism
How to create a business based on your values
An activist entrepreneur works within the system on feminist, environmental, and other socially progressive causes, both locally and internationally. We think of it as pleasurable activism with practical methods and solutions.

Traditionally young people and many progressives such as environmentalists or feminists, argue that capitalism is exploitative. And all too often it is.
President Donald Trump embodied nearly every stereotype of negative capitalism. Corruption, nepotism, bribery, slumlord, shady real estate deals. His list of sleazy capitalist practices went on and on.
However, as we teach in the Activist Entrepreneur, capitalism does not have to be this way.
Trade is the oldest of human enterprises and has great potential for good as well as corporate evil. In the Age of the Internet with its limitless potential, the youth of today have an opportunity to change capitalism from within.
As an Activist Entrepreneur you can:
- Create a business of Community, Activist, Feminist, Environmental or EcoSex principles
- Address challenges on the planet and creates meaningful jobs
- Live Actively and Pleasurably with Conscious Capitalism
In a time of high youth unemployment, few opportunities, and student debt, young people would serve themselves and the world better by making money in ethical activist businesses aligned with their values. Then they can play the same role as the oil companies do now, except they will be lobbying for good causes.
Politically Conscious Capitalism
The marijuana movement used capitalism to change the system from within. It took decades but now America, a conservative 'War Against Drugs' nation, has legal marijuana.
As marijuana developed into a viable and established industry, those in the business created a 'ganja lobby.' There is already a Solar and Wind lobby because they are making money! Young techies, the founders of Google, Apple, Paypal, Facebook, Microsoft have done some bad things but also supported very good causes.
As an activist entrepreneur community, we researched business solutions to various problems in the world. Over the years, we developed a practical series of principles that allow almost anyone to learn to be an ethical activist entrepreneur. We found that many problems in the world from refugees in the Middle East to homelessness in America could have an activist entrepreneur solution.
With high unemployment in so many regions of the world, making money by doing good is an idea whose time has come. Social entrepreneurship as it applies to activism can create sustainable employment too.
The benefits of earning a living according to your values are personal as well as professional. At Hedonisia, where we developed our activist entrepreneur programs, we discovered when you run a business based on doing good, you tend to attract idealistic people who can become like-minded personal friends.
