Walking through the Colombian jungle, ankle-deep in wet mud mixed with donkey manure, WITHOUT SHOES ON, I made a life-changing discovery…
…when I realized that I’d rather be doing this than a job I wasn’t 100% passionate about! And I decided, during my travels around South America, that it was time for me to finally find my purpose, grow my business ideas and make a positive impact on the world.
I started globesprouting with just $15 to purchase a domain name and set-up my email address, officially kicking off my journey as a purpose-driven entrepreneur. Then I set off to figure out how to turn what I loved to do into a winning business that also made a positive social or environmental impact.
My search took me more than 30,000 miles around the world to interview purpose-driven startup founders for my blog, work alongside entrepreneurs in Bali and meet with leaders in the social impact and sustainability sectors in Sydney, New York, London and San Francisco.
And do you want to know the biggest secret about launching and growing a purpose-driven business that no one tells you?
That your journey will be full of costly and time-consuming mistakes … and unless you can find proven, cost-effective solutions to keep you on the path towards success, the road is long, difficult and pull-your-hair-out levels of frustrating (I’m still missing some I think!).
But luckily for you, I’ve made the mistakes so you don’t have to!
My mission with globesprouting is to help more people launch their purpose-driven business journey with BS-free, honest and proven advice, either personally tested or curated by myself.
