What did you learn from the certification process?

“I learned that the B Corp community genuinely wants to see you succeed. When I first did the assessment I was overwhelmed and intimidated by the questions and the required documentation. That’s when I reached out to a friend who told me about the B Corp Clinic at NC State. From there I kept meeting more people in the B Corp community and eventually created a small but mighty tribe who were cheering us on to get certified and helping us in any way they could. Through this experience, I learned that even though the documentation may seem intimidating, the community is the opposite. They’re great people with kind hearts that want to see you achieve certification!”
