The time has come to change the narrative around what we've been told. The story that says be seated, pipe down, wait until you're called on before you can have a voice. Wait until you get out into the world before you can speak. Wait until you're making money before your opinions count. Wait until you're a manager before you can lead. Wait until you're old before you're viewed as wise.
When did we all start to listen? And what can we do to start changing the story society tells us?
I vote for today. Maybe you're considering taking a gap year, or you're back from your time off. Regardless of where you're at in your journey, know that your story has merit.
This will be a place where you can stand up, speak out and inspire others with your tales of adventure, bravery and compassion. This will be a place to connect with others who share your view of the world. Who yearn to make a change in the world around them. Who seek out purpose, and are willing to keep looking for it until they succeed.
Welcome to the tribe. Let's get this started.
