Promise of a Pencil

By  |  0 Comments

It all started in the club.

The music was thumping, the strobe lights were popping and this guy and I were pretty much shouting at each other.

While other tipsy clubgoers stumbled past us, I made him a promise. “One day we’re going to do something great together.”

Fast forward four years. We’re building three schools with that guy I met in the club — Adam Braun — and his incredible organization, Pencils of Promise.

Our school in Laos is complete and has 76 kids registered. The other two schools are still being constructed. And in four short years, my dear friend Adam Braun has launched a global revolution.

If you ever feel like you’re meant for more in this life but you doubt that one person can make a difference, you’re going to love today’s episode.

Listen in as my friend Adam and I talk about how to live your purpose and change the world — no matter who you are.
