“Service is not something you imagine doing at the end of your life hoping you’ve left enough time to make a difference. It’s a purposeful act done every day, as the center of your world, while letting the rest of your life fall into place around it.”
This story was from the September 2016 Fulfillament in Traverse City, MI. Fulfillament is a storytelling event featuring local community leaders and entrepreneurs who share their journey towards fulfillment and meaning through vocation- their inside story. Each storyteller issues a challenge for the audience to do something to find fulfillment in their own lives. This event awards a $500 grant to an audience member with a good idea that needs some help to get it moving.
The Conscious Entrepreneur is coaching and strategy for those looking to create or find meaningful work aligned with your values, strengths and what makes you come alive. Make your ideas happen, be successful, make a difference, from the inside out.
This Podcast is all about personal, inside stories from Conscious Entrepreneurs… Why they do what they do, how did they get there, and how does it make them come alive?
