    Outgrow Your Fear and Changing The World with Chris Field

    Outgrow Your Fear and Changing The World with Chris Field

    Prepare to be inspired today! 
     
    Today we are sitting down with the incredible Chris Field, founder of the Mercy Project, author of two books, career entrepreneur, and Father. 
     
    As an individual Chris had the opportunity to visit Ghana on a mission where he encountered children who had been trafficked and sold to fishermen. Leaving those children behind as he returned home became the catalyst for what is now The Mercy Project. 
    By introducing a new fishing method that eliminates the need for extra labor, Chris was able to negotiate the release of the trafficked children, returning them home. 
     
    Since 2009 Mercy Project has aimed to be fully invested and involved in Ghana. From a fully Ghanian staff to innovating change for those who have been affected. Chris and his team are fully committed to creating positive change in the world. 
     
    In addition to changing hundreds of lives, raising kids, Ted Talks, and other motivational events; Chris wrote two incredible books “Disrupting for Good” and “A Billion Hours of Good.”  
     
    If you, like us, asked “ How the heck does he do all this?? Are the reason Field’s wrote both of his books. He hands us the keys to creating change and success, makes it simple, and tells us that, even if it is the smallest bit of change- it will have a snowball effect and create even more change. 
     
    So hustlers, with that we will leave you with Chris’s favorite quote in order to become inspired to change the world:
     
    “My life was changed forever when my willingness to do great things outgrew my fear of failure”

    Launching Into Life with Lynn Yap

    Launching Into Life with Lynn Yap

    Hello Hustlers!!! 
     
    Welcome back to another Friday of inspiration and determination. This week, we have esteemed guest host Anne- Laure Orosco. 
     
    We are rising bright and early today alongside a true Hustler Lynn Yap.
     
    It may be shorter to list what Lynn hasn’t done, but we love to brag about our Hustlers. From taking companies public on Wall Street, writing and publishing a book, learning 8 languages, mentoring young women and running a consulting business full time, Lynn has things on lock. 
     
    Finding meaning in a multidimensional world is one thing, creating meaning on multiple levels is an accomplishment we all hope to achieve. Lynn has blazed many trails in her lifetime, one of these plays with the question of “what if young women have role models in business and leadership?”
     
    Starting at age 13, Lynn’s program opens up worlds to young women that could be totally foreign to them and helps develop leadership skills, familiarity, and enables them to explore in a positive environment. In these three months the work these women do, will help accelerate them in their careers and push them to living authentic lives. 
     
    Another incredible achievement is “The Altruistic Capitalist”, a fantastic book written about how we as individuals can change the outcome of the world through how we have conversations. Conversations about business, ethics, and how our choices and actions in business will be the tone set for the future of humanity. 
     
    So join us in this week's episode as we jump in deep and start sorting through how to be an incredible human being and change the world.

    Seat Yourself at the Table of Success- Phil Pelucha

    Seat Yourself at the Table of Success- Phil Pelucha

    It’s all about business today with famous podcast guru, professional athlete, and entrepreneur Phil Pelucha. 
    When we select our guests, we have a rigorous process that ensures we bring the best to you. So when we say we were over the moon that Phil agreed to sit down with us… we are not exaggerating. As we dove into the conversation, we were immediately struck with the assured and calm energy that Phil brought to the table. He is an individual who demonstrates the ability to “roll with the punches” as life throws them his way. 
     
    Medically retired early in his sports career, he presumed that staying within the game by coaching and mentoring would be a successful and fulfilling career. It was fun and kept him involved with the soccer community. However, his competitive nature kept rearing its head, and left him with the desire to for more outside his comfort zone. 
     
    Cue the opportunity that would eventually launch his career. 
     
    His only question- What the hell is a podcast and why would anyone listen to it? He laughs now, recalling the seemingly ridiculous offer. But concedes his friends had a point, he had inside knowledge of a premiere sport. At the time, Instagram insights and TikTok trends hadn't been dreamed up. So he took the opportunity to utilize his knowledge and the rest is history. 
    Come with us and learn how YOU could be maximizing your impact with networking, goal setting and achieving a business that will pay off big time. 
     
    We hope you enjoy this episode of Hustlers For A Cause! Thanks for listening!

    Plunge into Success- with Victoria Humphries

    Plunge into Success- with Victoria Humphries

    She never thought that she would walk to the north pole, never thought she would experience the bite of the icy cold ocean with her mother treading water by her side. Yet Victoria Humphries takes it all in stride. 
    This week, we were lucky enough to sit down with an incredible human, Victoria Humphries. Among her accolades are hiking to the north pole, writing a book, running a consulting business and being a motivational speaker when she has free time. 
    Casual. 
    Whether it’s the thrill of a challenge or the motivation to reach new heights. Victoria Humphries is a phenomenon of resilience. In our conversation you will hear the passion in her voice advocating for failure, for getting beaten and getting back up. It was awe inspiring for us to listen to her speak on the memories of a volatile landscape in her calm and measured tone. To hear the account of an unplanned polar plunge in the Arctic left us panicking while she calmly carried on with her story. Even with the 7 months of hard training Humphries boils it down to what it actually takes: Mental Toughness. 
    Mental toughness doesn’t always mean ploughing through life perfectly though. This author and adventurer emphasizes the importance of failure. If you don't fail, if you don't gain the experience of embracing and overcoming the Suck- you're missing out on life. 
    Come learn Victoria’s rules for life, business and adventuring in this incredible thing week. So put on your headphones, and join us for the fantastic interview of the Co-Author of Frigid Women and all around badass: Victoria Humphries.
