Business as mission is one of the foundational compoments of what Peter Awad and the Mission Meats team are doing. Peter founded Import Auto Performance which he has grown to 7 figures. IAPDirect.com has been selling car parts online for over 15 years. He is also Co-Founder of Mission Meats that sells grass fed beef sticks and bars and they even donate a portion of the profits to organizations. If that was not enough he runs the Slow Hustle Podcast showcasing the massive roller coaster that is entrepreneurship. He manages to do all of this with 4 kids!
Business as mission is a concept that is becoming a bigger topic of discussion these days in entrepreneurial circles. Peter Awad and the team at Mission Meats are at the center of many of those conversations because their company is poised to make money SO that they can support causes that bring truly benefit to real people.
Mission is anything that brings a blessing or benefit to people - from food projects, to clean water, to disaster relief - the point is that the business profits fuel helping people in disadvantaged or poor parts of the globe. Peter Awad and his company have been working that angle for years, supporting many causes that they believe in.
If you want to run a business but don’t want it all to be about you and the profits you’re making, business as mission is a concept you should consider. It’s a way to build the business for a bigger WHY than you may typically have, and you’ll be changing the world one dollar at a time.
Peter Awad also shares the story of Import Auto Performance, a company he began simply because he needed to make some money. He tells how he started out by sourcing his products from a friend and shipping them out of the back of his truck before Amazon was even on the scene. Today it’s ramped up to an unbelievably complex and specialized business.
