30 Days of Trash

Rob Greenfield collected 30 days of trash, living like the average American and then turned the mountain into a suit he could wear. The purpose of this project was to create a memorable visual of how much garbage one American creates. Powerful! It visualizes clearly how much individual actions matter and how much they add up.

Taking Responsibility for Your Life

“When you take responsibility for your life, you can choose peace instead of drama, growth instead of complacency and love instead of abuse.”
– Kyle D. Jones

Sue Austin … Deep Sea Diving in a Wheelchair

When Sue Austin got a power wheelchair, she felt a tremendous sense of freedom — yet others looked at her as though she had lost something. What a moving and inspiring talk. What an inspiring woman!

Smile Mirror

Smile Mirror meets People from Berk İlhan on Vimeo.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to meet Berk Ilhan, the inventor of Smile Mirror. It’s an emotionally smart mirror that is unlocked with the power of a smile. Totally wonderful. I would totally hang one in my home.

In this deeply personal talk, author Elizabeth White opens up an honest conversation about financial trouble and offers practical advice for how to live a richly textured life on a limited income.

My Recent 99u Talk

A few weeks ago I gave my second 99u talk, at their 10th anniversary conference here in NYC. And I am happy to see they just made it public for everyone to watch. In fact, they released all of the talks. So many good ones! Dive in!

Giles Duley

I just arrived in London after a spectacularly heart-opening three days at the Do Lectures in Wales. I will be mentioning many of my experiences and people I met over the coming weeks here, one simply can’t wait: I had the incredible pleasure get to know Giles Duley, which I would now describe as the man with the biggest, most fearless, most empathetic heart I have ever met.

If you are moved by his story, please join me in supporting his charity Legacy of War Foundation.

Brands With Purpose

“The most important brands in the world make you feel something. They do that because they have something they want to change. And as customers, we want to be part of that change. These companies have a reason to exist over and above just to make a profit: They have a purpose. Yes, we admire the product they make. But the thing we love the most about them is the change they are making.”
