”We believe that local entrepreneurs are only as strong as the network of peer supporters they have around them” Jelly Social
On Empowered 4x’s Bizgrams Episode 3, our guests, Sunjit Khamba and Amanda Russell speak on bringing compassion back into the business.
How Does Jelly Social Incorporate Compassion with Business?
As human beings, we have morals that guide us through life. Whether personal or professional, our morals are a huge part of who we are as individuals. Leading a life where your beliefs conflict with business can be emotionally draining.
Take a moment to think of a few words that come to mind when thinking about compassion in business. I bet a couple of them are not exactly positive. Jelly Socialtheir stage, created based on not having to complete morally conflicting work in business.
Sunjit began thinking about how he could bring the notion of the compassionate heart back into business operations—for example, building a net positive instead of a negative.
Amanda and Sunjit quit thinking about the bottom line and strived to think about others as people. Morally conflicting contracts do not exist at Jelly Social. This is what they are all about.
Can Entrepreneurs Ask and Give?
There is a notion in business that entrepreneurs know it all. But, as Sunjit mentioned, people think entrepreneurs know everything but they are still learning too.
At Jelly Social, voices are heard, and people are seen. Amanda mentions how Jelly Social provides a warm and welcoming presence to their clients. They prioritise asking questions such as, “How can we help? What do you need help with?”
Asking these questions personalizes the client’s experience with Amanda and Sunjit. In addition, it allows entrepreneurs to understand that it’s okay to ask for help because everyone is still learning no matter what stage they are at in their journeys.
Jelly Social encourages entrepreneurs to bounce ideas off each other. They create events and platforms which allow these entrepreneurs to connect with each other. Receiving and giving feedback will help each entrepreneur grow their businesses into the success they are aiming towards. This gives a boost to their entrepreneurial spirits and pushes them to move forward.
Growing a business built around the notion of the compassionate heart is a refreshing outlook on success in business.

Understanding how Jelly Social was founded on the notion of the compassionate heart, we should ask ourselves, are there situations in our lives that conflict with our morals? What have we learned from Sunjit and Amanda that may have inspired us to make some changes?
