5. Lisa Mead : Founder of Social Currency; A purpose driven Accounting Firm that donates 10% sales to support at risk Kiwi kids

By Kylie Richardson

Lisa runs a social impact business called Social Currency, which is a purpose driven accounting firm committed to giving away 10% of sales to supporting at risk kiwi kids through mentoring programs and charity partnerships. Social Currency does accounting, tax, business advisory, supports social enterprises and creates social impact reports for purpose driven businesses making an impact and wanting to share their story. Lisa has been working as an accountant since 2008 and is a Chartered Accountant working with lots of different types of people and businesses all over New Zealand, and some across the ditch. With a passion for what she does and the charities she supports coming from a personal struggle against the odds, Lisa's son is very much the driving force behind her determination. She knew that failure was not an option, and success is no coincidence. The purpose of Social Currency is to be a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable young people in New Zealand, and is well on the way to fulfilling the mission having already donated $7,000 to supporting at-risk kiwi kids since November 2017. www.socialcurrency.co.nz IG: @socialcurrencynz
