When considering what your unique purpose is in the world, it’s essential to reach into your roots. Only YOU have lived YOUR story. Where you have come from has made you who you are, and in many ways, has positioned you to pursue a purpose that is meant for you.

You may be surprised what you learn about yourself that helps you articulate what you think your purpose is.

Tips About How to Afford to Change Your Life

on Oct 9, 2018 9:45:00 AM By | Deanna Singh | 0 Comments | Life Impact Social Change Plan Career 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.
