We were so inspired this morning by hearing these words from Adam Braun, founder of Pencils of Promise:
“You have your own extraordinary journey to live out, but first you have to find your purpose. And you find that by getting outside of your comfort zone and once you read those signs that you will be inevitably surrounded by, you will find the thing that makes you most come alive. Then take that small step and follow the signs along the path.”
Adam’s insight comes from his experience coming up with the idea for Pencils of Promise. Now, four years later, PoP is an award-winning for-purpose organization that has built more than 150 schools across Africa, Asia and Latin America and delivered over 12 million educational hours.

And, Adam has a new book out, The Promise of a Pencil: How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change. We haven’t read it yet, but let us know what you think if you’ve checked it out!
