Join me in a series of unfiltered conversations with some of the most remarkable purpose-driven humans who have all either achieved, accomplished, created, inspired, overcome or triumphed. It is a quest to understand what purpose really is and to uncover and articulate the steps along the way to help you get there.

Every purpose was at one point simply an idea.
