Episode 145- Scott Harrison on How to Find Your Purpose in Life

Scott Harrison

It’s never too late to change your life. Ten years into a successful career as a nightclub promoter, Scott Harrison felt empty and unhappy. Desperate for change, he signed up to volunteer on a hospital ship in Liberia where he first learned about the impact of the global water crisis. That experience inspired him to start the nonprofit charity: water to bring clean water to developing countries around the world. Today, charity: water has funded 91,414 water projects to help more than 14.7 million people get access to clean water. On this episode, Scott talks about the power of second chances, finding a sense of purpose, and why it’s never too late to make a change.
