Lessons from a Social Entrepreneur & Kung Fu Master: Lizza Gebilagin, Founder of Corker

Hey Everybody and welcome to today’s episode of the Social Entrepreneurship Series.

Today, we have a special guest which is Lizza Gebilagin from Sydney, Australia.

She’s the founder of the social enterprise, Corker Magazine.

She’s also a scholar from the School of Social Entrepreneurs.

And, shes also a recent graduate from an intense kung fu course in China.

Apart from that, she’s also a good friend.

So, this is a really interesting interview and chat that we have.

Why is this important for you?

Firstly, you get to learn more on a personal level about Lizza, such as how she grew up and where she’s from and how she got into social entrepreneurship.

Another thing you’ll learn is about how she actually got the scholarship from the School of Social Entrepreneurs and the lessons she learned.

Next, you’ll also find out how she defines social entrepreneurship, which I know many of you are interested in learning more about.

Additionally, you’ll find out the projects that she’s working on – some really exciting stuff.

Finally, she’ll give advice for aspiring social entrepreneurs and she even gives some lessons about what she learned from kung fu and how that can apply to improving your social entrepreneurship journey.

Stay tuned for the lessons from a social entrepreneur and kung fu master – Lizza Gebilagin.


Before we continue on with the interview with Lizza, I wanted to give a massive shoutout to Jessica Hendrawidjaja.

She commented that she loves the SocEnt Series, and that she’s been follwing the blog for quite some time. She also talked about how she’s starting up an event in the event to promote social entrepreneurship and I hope that goes well.

If anyone elses wants to send questions or comments, then do so, and I’ll send you a shoutout especially if you say your name, about yourself and where you’re from.

Partners for the Social Entrepreneurship Series

I’m very happy to announce that the Social Entrepreneurship Series has locked in a number of partners and sponsors to help fund the series. The way that I’m going to partner and select the partners is that I will make sure that they are interesting and related to my audience. If you’re a social entrepreneur, I want to make sure that the partners that we talk about and highlight are relevant for you.

The first partner that I wanted to thank and highlight is Business Plan Pro.

That is a software program offered by Palo Alto software and I want to thank them and highlight them for being a partner of the show. If you’re a social entrepreneur and you want to write up a business plan, then this software is great for you especially if you’re a creative, or you’re form another discipline and you didn’t study business yourself, then this is a great way for you to start. I’ve used the software myself, and it is very organised because it breaks down a business plan very easily for you. It asks you to put in your information in the right areas, and it organises it for you. In the interview with Lizza that’s coming up, we actually talk about how important it is for you to write up a business plan and she even talks about how she struggled when she started.

Business Plan Pro Premier

A business plan software is useful because it can help you get funding when you have to propose your business to investors and other clients. It’s also important for you as a social entrepreneur yourself to get organised.

Thank you Business Plan Pro for partnering up with the Social Entrepreneurship Series. If this software sounds interesting and useful for you out there, then do check out their website.
