Deep relationships have to be nurtured. When there are tough conversations to be had, you have to give the other person the courtesy of picking up the phone.

My latest #blog : We take things in life for granted. Having shoes to walk in is considered a LUXURY in some countries. Here's how your #shoes  can help to save a child's life. #leadership   #fundraising   #gripandrip  
While we drive to work, school and soccer practice, most of the poor in developing nations use their feet as the primary mode of transportation.

Introduction

Wayne Elsey is the Founder and former CEO of Soles4Souls, author oftvarious books including Almost Isn't Good Enough, the Not Your Fathers Charity Book Series and current Founder & CEO of Elsey Enterprises.

Elsey started working in the footwear industry at the age of 15 and continued in a myriad of manufacturing, managerial, sales and marketing positions. From 1999 to 2004 Elsey served as President/CEO of Footwear Specialties International (FSI). During that time, FSI grew over 400 percent in revenue. In 2005, Elsey was named President of Kodiak-Terra USA where he remained until becoming the Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls in 2007. Under his guidance, Soles4Souls became one of the top 1% of nonprofit organizations in the United States in just 4 years. To date, S4S has distributed over 19 million pairs of shoes in 127 countries to victims of natural disasters and abject poverty.

After leaving Soles4Souls, Wayne launched Elsey Enterprises (EE), a company that works with nonprofit and for profit organizations on strategy, branding and development. WEE has 3 divisions: strategic, educational and fundraising. The Strategic Division consults with organizations to strengthen identity and drive success. The 2nd division, SocialGoodU, is an online educational site designed to give nonprofit leaders the knowledge and understanding to help their organizations succeed. The 3rd division, Funds2Orgs, is a social enterprise that offers 3 compelling advantages: 1. Provides domestic nonprofits the ability to raise funds by carrying out engaging programs; 2. Creates and sustains micro-enterprise opportunities for low-income entrepreneurs in developing nations; and 3. Dramatically reduces the impact of post-consumer waste in our nation's landfills.

Wayne is also a highly sought after public speaker and authority on topics related to leadership, branding, social activism, motivation, and community engagement. His network appearances include: NBC Nightly News, Good Morning America, Today Show, & Fox News.
