As an entrepreneur operating in a global digital economy on the digital global platform, it is imperative to have a basic understanding of globalization and its significance in entrepreneurship in the present-day world. Technology has turned the world into a global village and an oyster where you can explore endless opportunities to play your role and contribute to making the world a better place to live, learn, work, and do business on the internet without fearing boundaries. Let’s dig in and explore the concepts you need to master for global literacy in life and business.
Holistic and Humane Mindset
A holistic and humane approach to life and business should be the new norm in the digital business landscape that technology and the internet have afforded you and me. The holistic and humane mindset of being of service above yourself will help to promote a global sense of being humane through global literacy. That is why global literacy is necessary. Global literacy will help to demystify the concepts of racism, regionalism, and all the biases and ills of the traditional mindset that modern technology is fast disrupting. And creative entrepreneurial approaches in doing business are taking over with more human-centric approaches in the business landscape. That promotes global interactions that used to be closed by physical boundaries and borders created by man for dividing and ruling.
The world is now a global village, and global literacy will expose you to opportunities to contribute to learning how best you can understand yourself and your capabilities in contributing your knowledge, talents, and skills to contribute to making the world a better place to live, learn, work and do business for everyone. So, what are the basic concepts and principles to master global in global literacy? Let’s jump in and explore.
What is Global literacy
It is the ability to understand that the world is a globe created for everyone to explore with the freedom to be themselves and be the best of themselves in contributing to making the world a better place to live, learn, work, and do business for everyone. Schools and colleges never taught global literacy. They limited humans to understanding themselves and how best they could be the best of themselves and the world around them through limiting curriculums and prescribed syllabuses. That is why there is segregation, racism, and all the ills in our societies.
With the advent of technology, economic boundaries and borders have been broken. That creates an interconnected world for promoting trading among nations and human interactions for exchanging ideas without limitations from boundaries and national limiting regulations that deny them opportunities, especially for dissolving the engraved colonial mindset of seeing other nations as inferior and of lesser value in creating wealth for market share on the globe.
Diversity & Inclusion
Technology is changing the whole business narrative. Be it at home, school, work, and in business. Diversity and inclusion are now the new norm. As an entrepreneur, promoting diversity and inclusion in your entrepreneurial ventures is one way of promoting globalization that enriches your company outreach as a brand that can contribute to making the world a better place to live, learn, work, and do business. That is what global literacy inculcates in entrepreneurship, especially in the digital global economy.
Diversity and inclusion mean having opportunities to interact with people from different cultural backgrounds. As an entrepreneur, that would mean bringing in different perspectives in entrepreneurial business activities. That is enriching for exposure in a world fast becoming a small village with opportunities to hire and do business with anyone across borders.
Racism & Segregation
As an entrepreneur in the global village, you must know these concepts so that you don’t fall short of eliminating them in your business dealings. Racism can be painful to all races in the world. However, the comforting thing is God has always intervened in leveling up things and will continue to do so until everyone has taken their rightful share of all the resources God created for everyone. No race was born superior or inferior. Here is the thing. Superiority and inferiority are out of greed and selfishness of a man who wanted to control and own portions of natural resources.
But this is no longer possible, with modern technologies promoting globalization through the internet and creatorpreneurship opportunities. Online learning is disrupting schools and colleges intended to instill classifications in our communities. And creatorpreneur are now fast becoming stars and celebrities of their knowledge and experiences in providing opportunities to learn anything online through digital learning platforms like Holistic Literacy Academy and many popular ones like Future Learn, Mind Valley, British Maestro, Udemy, and many others that are providing digital educational products and courses online.
Global literacy will help you open your mind to a more holistic and humane understanding that racism, segregation, and inhuman illnesses that should never have happened in our societies and need to be rectified by more holistic principles that contribute to making the world a better place to live, learn, work, and do business for everyone.
Justice & Fairness
Global literacy promotes justice and fairness in the globe. That is how we view each other as human beings created to exist in one global village as God meant it to be. Should I say? Yes, to those who believe in God and his son Jesus Christ, he never came for a specific nation but for all under the earth. And he did everything with fairness and zero bias and injustice. Global literacy will help you open your mind to accept other people the way they are and how best you can be of service above yourself in your business to provide value and benefit to everyone concerned.
Justice and fairness do not start in Courts of Justice. It begins in our hearts and how we conduct ourselves in life and business. That is how to practice justice at home, school, work, and business. That way, practicing your understanding of it holistically and humanely promotes a global mindset in making the world a better place to live, learn, work, and do business.
Man created boundaries and trade laws to divide, segregate, and rule from greedy nationalities who wanted supreme power and premium recognition in their communities, society, and the world. Technology knows no bang-bang theory. The AI tech and large language algorithms are trying to impose the same segregationally classifications, but it seems they are failing. In entrepreneurship, winds are changing for purpose and value creation, nothing else. You don’t need to exploit people on social media platforms to be rich. But to deliver value that benefits the people you generate income from.
Global literacy will instill a global mindset in you as an entrepreneur operating in a global digital economy to understand yourself as a Global citizen. And how best you should conduct yourself online and offline with a holistic and humane approach and contribute to making the world a better place to trade for the benefit of everyone concerned in the global economy. And what you should do as a global citizen to promote globalization through holistic and humane principles in life and business. Venturing into internetpreneurship should not be about enriching yourself but creating value and creative solutions that make the world a better place to live, learn, work, and do business for the benefit of all concerned.
