I have always been a huge fan of underdogs.
Josh Shipp started his life without a safety net. Abandoned at birth by his mother, he spent most of his youth bouncing between foster homes, growing increasingly disillusioned and angry.
He finally landed in a home with a family who gave him the kind of support and encouragement he needed.
He then built an amazing speaking business, reaching more than 2 million teens with live presentations.
He created a television show called Jump Shipp where he pairs a person with a big dream with a mentor and a challenge to make it happen.
His latest book is called Jump Ship: Ditch Your Dead-End Job and Turn Your Passion into a Profession.
In this episode, Josh and I discuss:
- His own journey, and how he turned a bleak childhood into a life of service and inspiration
- Strategies for finding more meaning in your life and business
- How to integrate all of your “ingredients” in your work – skills, strengths and scars
I was so inspired to talk to this young man who has done more with his short life than most people twice his age.
