This week’s podcast: “The POWER to Be” on HuffPost.

“I think that’s where they’re missing out on the power.”
The power of the Power to Be is to inspire and empower individuals to change their lives and help them feel empowered.
The website, which has been in operation for more than three years, provides a forum for people to share their experiences and ideas.
“We want to make sure we’re getting the most out of the power and we want to create a place where people feel empowered and have confidence in what they’re saying and what they think,” Heinemann said.
The founders of the site have also been working to reach out to leaders of other industries to help create the community.
The site also has a mission to make change happen in the world, Heinemans said.
In the past year, the site has partnered with organizations like the World Health Organization and the World Food Program to help connect people with resources to support their causes.
“It’s a really great way to reach a larger audience, a broader audience, than we could otherwise,” Heemans said of the partnerships.
The new website is also working with companies like Uber and Etsy to bring people together.
“These companies really want to get involved and have an impact in the lives of people,” Heimans said, “so we’re working with them to get their business in line.”
POWER TO BE has about 600 members and is seeking a new home in Chicago.

The organization’s Facebook page has been shared more than 3.6 million times.
“This is an organization that is very much about empowering people,” said Heinemain.
“They are not just talking about change for them.
They are about change in a way that is empowering for people.”
Power Up was started as a blog and Facebook group but now has about 300 members.
They also offer videos on topics such as “the power of a story,” “the importance of empowering other women,” and “how to take charge of your life.”
In 2016, Heimann received an invitation to speak at a TEDx conference and joined a panel with other former CEOs on the topic of “the end of work and the end of capitalism.”
The event was titled “Power to Change: How to make a difference for the world.”
Heiman said he decided to give the talk after reading an article in The Atlantic that described the idea that capitalism is about “sucking in your hard-earned income.”
“The Atlantic article said that there are a lot of people who think that capitalism doesn’t have any meaning,” Heimean said.
“But it’s not about sucking out your hard earned income, it’s about sucking in your energy, your passion and your life force.
That’s the power that capitalism has.”
Heinemane said the idea behind the site came from the desire to create an alternative to the conventional wisdom that corporations don’t have to invest in people.
Heinemania said the site encourages people to make changes, including starting a business, in a sustainable way.
“If you are able to change your world for the better and make a change in your life that is not only beneficial but empowering for you personally, it is also a real step forward,” he said.
POWER TO WAVE is part of the HuffPost Power series on social change, in which the HuffPost editors take a look at the impact of social media on social justice.
