Robin Eschler

Robin Eschler's path through life has been motivated by the mission to serve and help make the planet a better place. Her spiritual path has included initiation as a Reiki Master and healing work which then lead to being a trained Science of Mind Practitioner. Although she had hoped to continue into ministerial training, as a single parent of 3 young children, she made the practical choice to continue in her professional career. Robin's career in marketing started in the Silicon Valley high tech industry and expanded to nonprofit and, most recently, social entrepreneurship including B2C and B2B. She worked 14 years in nonprofit marketing and fund-raising, during which time she developed several program for disadvantaged populations, at-risk youth and veterans and received two honorary awards from Rotary International for "Service Above Self." Upon leaving nonprofit and re-entering independent consulting, she produced and hosted her own online radio show, Socially Conscious Investing, interviewing 80 different social entrepreneurs, nonprofits, authors, students and leaders from around the world who are developing services and products focused on positive social impact. Her current business, Social Impact Marketing, works with international nonprofits and for- profit organizations having both ROI and SROI business goals. "Nonprofit is experiencing a paradigm shift," Robin shares, "and sustainability is at the core. This means less checkbook philanthropy and a growing for-profit, socially driven business sector. Social Return on Investment (SROI) is gaining serious traction in the investment community." Robin has a 100% success rate helping for-profits and nonprofits get funding through crowdfunding. She sees crowdfunding as a highly effective marketing tool that when properly integrated into the overall marketing strategy can result in astounding outcomes. Robin's spiritual path and career path have ultimately merged with the purpose of transformation and responsibility to a Universal power that guides our growth as spiritual beings.
