This exercise helps participants to think about income and impact and then explore ways to increase their income and impact.

Draw out the simple axes of the graph, with a happy face representing social/environmental etc impact, and a dollar or pound sign representing potential income generation. Remind people what we mean by social impact. Ask people to draw one themselves and plot what they do on the grid . Where we would like to be is in the top right hand quarter.
