Tips for Talking to Your Kids About Issues You Care About

on Oct 30, 2018 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Social Change Diversity Family Children Passion
With devastating headlines pouring in and given the current political climate of our country, it can feel impossible to go anywhere without a serious topic coming up in conversation. We know that our kids are subjected to this overload of information as well, regardless of how much we wish we could keep them safe from it. Often, there are serious things happening even in our own backyards that will affect our kids, but we don’t always know how to bridge that gap of trying to talk with them about it. But no matter how hard, it’s important that we try. While so much is happening in our communities, and so much is changing in our culture, it is not in our nature as Purposeful Hustlers to stay on the sidelines. Part of figuring out how to best engage with the things we care most about is figuring out how to help our children process what is happening in the world around them.

You Are Capable of Making Social Impact if You Possess These Qualities

Their Purposeful Hustle is a propelling force that drives them to keep going, to explore all angles of a problem, and to not give up. It shapes the way they choose to move in the world and their ability to actualize their dreams. Purposeful Hustlers see the world for what it could be. They learn how to push things out of their heads and into reality. Maybe most importantly, purposeful hustlers learn how to do things without waiting for permission.

Tips About How to Afford to Change Your Life

on Oct 9, 2018 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Career Social Change Impact Plan Life Initiative
One of the most common obstacles people express to me when wanting to do impactful work is finances. It seems like there’s never enough money to make the changes in your life that will help you live within your purpose or create the impact that you want to see. This is where the the hustle part of a Purposeful Hustle kicks in. With little or no money, I have seen people create countless impactful solutions. In fact, I soon realized in my philanthropic work that the organizations with the biggest impact are often the ones who are underfunded. Why? Because those organizations prioritize impact over fundraising and are too busy doing the work to raise the money. You CAN make a huge impact with a small cash flow.
