Words cannot describe the feelings surrounding Rank & File Issue #12 – this issue has challenged me so much… in all the right ways.

It was supposed to be all about money mindset, but halfway into the journey – the contributors and the interviewees showed me that you can’t talk about money without ALSO talking about love. and leadership.

I am so honored to share the stories and wisdom of so many wonderful people inside Issue #12 with you. They blend their values and their love of people so beautifully into sustainable work.

One interviewee, in particular, challenged me to bring more faith, hope and love in my purpose-driven business. Meredith Toering is the Director of Morning Star – a children’s home that is helping to heal the broken hearts of orphans with severe heart defects.

Meredith and I jumped on Skype – over 4,000 miles between the two of us – but I felt like she was sitting right there with me.

In this episode, Meredith shares her personal story and the brave stories of her babies, her surgeons and her Ayis – and together, these 4 heroes – teach us about love, about courage, about hope. And about what it means to bring the right mindset to purpose-driven work – even when we don’t have all the answers and the future is uncertain.

I know that you are going to LOVE this episode as you get to know Meredith.

In Today’s Podcast Episode, Meredith and I talk about:

– Our favorite parts about China 🙂

– Meredith’s crazy story of how she ended up in China (and getting to work with her future adopted sister)

– The orphan crisis and what Morning Star is doing about it

– How Meredith is fighting to keep families together through orphan-prevention

– What true social impact means to Meredith, and more!
