Heya Permies! I'd like to share a story with you all. It's a story of how I got to the point in my journey of committing to build an Impact Center from the ground up.

Working in a job that created ethical conflict for a while... I eventually found myself in tears, in a tree, my moral compass bent out of shape, and I was fed up. I packed a bag, sold most of my stuff, and hit the road for 6 years. In that time I was exposed to all walks of life and gradually started gravitating to permaculture farms, impact centers, and intentional communities. After a few years, the urge to start one of my own became too strong to ignore any longer.
Before long, I learned that it was much easier said than done, and I had vastly underestimated the challenges that came with such an undertaking...

I'd like to share a podcast episode with you all today that I featured on a while back.
I'm not sharing this to toot my own horn, but rather to start a conversation sharing stories and insights to inspire others to live more congruently to their personal mission.

What was your journey that lead you to start an impact center?
What were the biggest challenges you faced?

I've uploaded a summary of the episode

Thanks
