“Love is misunderstood to be an emotion;
actually, it is a state of awareness, a way of
being in the world, a way of seeing oneself and others.”
–Dr. David Hawkins
10 Life Quotes That (If Applied) Will Change the Way You See The World Forever:
“Why do we love life quotes so much?
I think I have the answer. Life quotes have a way of piercing through the B.S. and noise surrounding us. Life quotes are the Gordian knots that cut through that noise and reveal the essence of life we know deep down but tend to forget.
I’m a writer, which means I love quotes. But I also understand how simultaneously insightful and useless they can be. You can do one of two things with a quote — use it as inspirational fluff to post on Instagram or use the insight to change your life. The wisdom of quotes is extremely powerful when applied”…

Launching New EdCorps + a Fundraising Campaign:
143 New Student-Run Businesses Changing the World
On Monday morning, 143 new student-run businesses launch, each with their own unique mission, goals, and universe of learning and possibility. It’s one reason this never gets old – because each class can use their business as a vehicle for creativity, experimentation, and connection to the world around them. And it looks different every time.
Before we push play on our fifth school year, I wanted to share the EdCorps ’18-’19 Yearbook from this past year. In it, you’ll find stories of a pre-k class using their business to support people with epilepsy and those of high school students building products that address local ecological issues. Compiling these stories is always my favorite time of year because the patterns are undeniable; students discovering what they’re capable of and finding ways to use their skills and passions for their communities. The entrepreneurial journey is different in each class, but the student transformation happens everywhere. I wanted to share those stories with you here.
I’ve got other big news – this is the beginning of our first public fundraising campaign. In the past, we’ve been so busy focusing on classrooms that we haven’t made it easy for passionate people to help us grow the movement. That’s changing. Today, everyday people can invest directly in student learning by becoming EdCorps Angels and giving monthly. And for those excited to help scale the impact of the EdCorps Community in more substantive ways, they can become an Impact Sponsor and invest in projects that help us improve outcomes for thousands more students. You can learn more by clicking here or below.
Over 450 student-run businesses to date – all because of the tenacity of educators, the persistence and brilliance of students, and the support of fellow dreamers, doers, and thought partners like you. We wouldn’t have made it this far – and wouldn’t make it too much further – without people like you. So whether it be a monetary gift, your mentorship and personal insights, or note of encouragement or support, we’re grateful you’re on our team.

Love is Just Damn Good Business…
Save the Date: September 27th 2019 at 7pm at Corporate Alliance- Love is Just Damn Good Business Book Launch Party Sponsored by the Chamber of Purpose as we stand up Love as a cornerstone in San Diego!
My friend Steve Farber, author of The Radical Leap, The Radical Edge, and Greater Than Yourself, has just released his latest and, I think, greatest book.
It’s called Love Is Just Damn Good Business, and I believe that it’s going to help create a new paradigm in the business world.
The book tosses aside the touchy-feely notions of love in business and recognizes the real power it holds. Love is not only appropriate in the context of business, it’s the foundation of great leadership, and, therefore, the very foundation of a thriving, competitive enterprise. When love is part of an organization’s framework and operationalized in its culture, employees and customers feel genuinely valued.
Employees who are passionate about their work are more loyal, innovative, creative, and inspired—and that translates to great customer experience. They don’t serve others out of obligation, but because of a genuine desire to improve people’s lives. And when customers reciprocate by loving your products, your services, and your people, that’s when something great happens. That’s when you get loyalty. That’s when you get raving fans. That’s when people love you in return.
And in that spirit, you’re invited to the official San Diego book launch party for Love Is Just Damn Good Business!
Join us on Friday, September 27 from 7 – 10 PM at Corporate Alliance of San Diego. There’ll be food and mingling and great company. And, of course, Steve will read selections from the book.
Let’s co-lead this fantastic LoveBiz revolution. If we can change the expectation and experience of what it means to be in business, we change everything.
