Giving Back and Finding Meaning - 092

Update: 2019-08-2019


Have you ever asked yourself:What is this all for?What is the meaning behind all of this?Is there more to life than eat, sleep, work, repeat?Whether you’re caught in the rat race, always striving for more more more, or you’ve achieved more and it wasn’t as fulfilling as you thought it would be, this episode is for you.

We’re talking to Lydia Dean, the founder of GoPhilanthropic. Almost 20 years ago, she had all the things she had been dreaming of. Big house, beautiful family, the white picket fence.

But she still felt unfulfilled. She ended up convincing her husband to uproot their lives and and two young kids and go travel the world in search of a deeper meaning.

By giving up everything, she found everything she really needed: simplicity, fulfillment, and ways too give back. She has so much wisdom around philanthropy, raising a nomadic family, adopting a child from China, and most of all, finding meaning in whatever you choose to do.

Today we will learn:How to break free of the norms and follow your inner voiceWays we can address our search for deeper meaning and fulfillmentHow can we each play an active role in global issues, not just by giving money but in sharing our time and hearts
