Have you ever wondered what makes some people extraordinary? Is it something special some people just have at birth? Or are we all born the same only to evolve into greater things? I’m learning that no matter what age or phase of life we are in, we have the ability to make choices that change our lives and the lives of others for the better. Finding a purpose greater than ourselves is a catalyst for that change.
Today’s conversation with Lynne Twist is an inspiring one. We take a deep dive into creating a life of meaning and commitment, what that means for our identity, and the ripple effect it has throughout the world. Over the past 40 years, Lynne has worked with over 100,000 people in 50 countries in the arenas of fundraising with integrity, conscious philanthropy, strategic visioning, and having a healthy relationship with money. An author and speaker, she has presented for the United Nations Beijing Women’s Conference, State of the World Forum, Synthesis Dialogues with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and the Governor’s Conference on California Women, among others. A recognized global visionary, Ms. Twist has been an advisor to the Desmond Tutu Foundation, and The Nobel Women’s Initiative.
