When the work you do is aligned with your purpose, the result is inspired action. Rather than grinding through each day, you are propelled forward by a calling to serve. So, what is your purposeful hustle? And how would your life change if you pursued that passion every day?
Today, we’re joined by Deanna Singh, the Founder and Chief Change Agent at Flying Elephant. Recognized as a leading authority in creating opportunities in underserved communities, Deanna has spent nearly 20 years designing and building solutions to complex social challenges. She has extensive experience in the realm of social entrepreneurship and advocacy, and Deanna is the author of the new release, Purposeful Hustle: Direct Your Life’s Work Towards Making a Positive Impact.
Deanna begins by defining what it means to be a social entrepreneur. She explains how her diverse body of work fits under the umbrella of shifting power to marginalized communities and describes the inspired action behind work that aligns with your unique purpose. Deanna also discusses the value in making failure part of the plan and shares the concept of a failsumé to document (and even celebrate!) the areas where you’re not winning. Listen in to understand how clarity of purpose can support you in doing less—and learn how to uncover and engage in your own purposeful hustle!
