Passions & Purpose

Wright is working on a TV series and book exposing which companies, brands, services and products are “Humanity Plus” and which are “humanity fails”.

So we can decide where our $$ go…

And “Buy A Better World”.

Wright explains, “Our wallets change the world faster than governments, NGOs and corporations… and many women believe it’s time to “stop pussyfooting around!”

For example… did you know the network company Vodafone are owned by a multi-billion dollar weapons corporation, which also owns media including Le Figaro, while actively supplying arms in multiple countries? Many car companies are owned by similar – but not all. We pay for all this through our taxes too – but most arms companies don’t pay tax.

… many commercial pig farmers supplying the pork you eat are using blood from abused pregnant mares on so-called “blood farms” to make the sows (mother pigs) produce more piglets in a year than she can naturally? This practice has been widespread for more than 30 years. Currently you can’t tell which… but it’s possible to know.

… General Mills’ breakfast cereal ‘Cinnamon Toast Crunch’ and ‘Lucky Charms’ contains trisodium phosphate, a known poison.

… The Body Shop and Toms of Maine are owned by corporations which use animal testing for beauty products.

There are SO many humanity fail examples. BUT there are even more good alternatives. It’s time to highlight these Humanity Plus alternatives to humanity fail corps. So we can make informed choices.

We’re all going to keep on consuming, keep on spending. Nothing wrong with that. Money is a form of energy. I’m intensely curious about the connections controlling our world – and how we can take back control through our buying power when we’re informed.”

Wright’s new book is called “Rogue Elephants In The Room – Every Woman’s Guide To Buying A Better World”, detailing this and more, especially 10 steps to take.

Angela Wright MBE is a Humanity Plus business strategist, entrepreneur and presenter deeply committed to changing the world before lunchtime and living like it’s heaven on earth, specialising in inspiring action to make life better.

“Life is so extremely beautiful and painful, we can question every cruelty, poison, and toxin, trust our inability to condone wrong, despise the unkindness which cripples our souls, shredding with every unfair action, each selfish scream, each scalpel-sharp word. It’s time to change the world before lunchtime – yes, we can live like it’s heaven on earth. Let me show you how.”

Wright uses her life’s work to positively showcase how to live like it’s heaven on earth, here and now. Her mission is to change the world before lunchtime with health wisdom and products that enable more of us to live better.

Passionate about the power of business as a force for good, with Humanity Plus brands, products and services, positively impacting people, planet and putting profits to good use.

Revolutionary formulas with genuine ingredients at the right dose are not just created for optimum nutrition in an increasingly toxic world – uniquely they are designed to activate the pineal gland, rebalance chakra and meridians, bringing truth and honour to an industry dominated by MLMs and Pharma companies.

Passionate about Humanity Plus businesses, products and services, positively impacting people, planet and putting profits to good use.

From a farming family, Angela is a Humanity Plus business strategist, entrepreneur, author and presenter. Founder and cofounder of businesses as diverse as award winning theme parks and complementary health businesses.

Packing more into life so far than most, Angela Wright has created, owned and run theme parks, received an MBE from HM Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace, operated multiple businesses around the world, brought water to remote villages in South Africa, worked with rhinos in Zimbabwe, travelled around the world many times, all while raising five children and remaining devotedly married to her “hero”, husband David.

I cofounded GrantTree in 2010 to help UK tech companies to raise money from the government. That was great timing! The UK government funding landscape has been making great progress since then: R&D Tax Credits got a bump, TSB received more funding for its ongoing grants programme ("Grants for R&D" last year, now renamed "Smart Grants"), SEIS is just about to launch, and the Patent Box tax break is in the works.

The UK Government wants to give innovative businesses funding, but as is always the case with government legislation, the way to access it is complex, changes from year to year, and is full of caveats and tricks.

As a startup founder, or director of an existing tech company, it's not *your* job to figure out all the intricacies of UK government funding: it's mine.

It’s challenging to establish yourself as a migrant female entrepreneur in tech. Starting out as a “sales woman from hell” with a strong Eastern European accent who pitched herself to a few foreign tech corporations in her early twenties as a UK Country Manager (and got the job), Paulina’s career has been full of bold moves, twists and surprises. It wasn’t long before time spent around bearded geeks in tech meet-ups convinced her to start a company in the tech industry. Six years in, GrantTree turns over close to £3m, employs 28 people and serves 600 clients some of whom are top players in innovative technology space: Duedil, GoCardless, MarketInvoice, Curve etc. Paulina is also a seed investor in a few tech startups.
