Mahmud outlines the three major problems to succeeding as a social entrepreneur, and the solutions how to overcome them. He says it succinctly, “What makes a successful social entrepreneur is that you don’t give up when people give you a hundred reasons why you will fail: You give them 101 reasons why you will succeed.”
