Kim Frank, Writer, Editor, Storyteller

What is your life purpose?
To be wildly creative and deeply productive as a writer and editor, to be a dynamically positive role model and guiding support to my daughters, and to always cultivate the sensual, friendship-based, loving relationship I have with my partner/husband.

How are you living your purpose?
It’s a delicate balance. Living my purpose means I am always paying close attention to my gut instinct and asking myself how each action fits with my goals and vision for my life. By knowing when to say yes and when to say no, intentionally, and with gut level consideration, I can stay on course. It looks like this inside my head:

Holly Carter, Founder and Executive Director of BYkids

What is your life’s purpose?
My life mission is to revolutionize education by teaching empathy and cross-cultural understanding and giving voice to the otherwise voiceless through film.

How are you living your purpose?
In founding BYkids, we have built a creative storytelling platform for social change. We help one young person make a short documentary film about his/her life and—through distribution including Public Television, Discovery Education and PenPal Schools—bring our films and curricula to over 106 million children in classrooms and living rooms across the country. This allows American young people to see and empathize with the lives of kids around the world, with the goal to develop cross-cultural understanding and social engagement.

Emeka Nnaka, Motivational Speaker

What is your life’s purpose?
My mission is to use my life as a light to guide people through whatever dark times they may be facing or have faced.

How are you living your purpose?
I’m fulfilling my purpose in a macro way through my profession of motivational speaking and coaching. I not only speak on the subject of overcoming adversity, but also on the power of hope and finding strength in diversity. I believe that the key to success no matter the obstacles is found in setting the right goals, finding and creating pathways, and building a personal culture by establishing a core set of values and surrounding yourself with individuals who fuel you and your goals.

Leah Missbach Day, Photographer and Co-Founder of World Bicycle Relief

What is your life’s purpose?
With eyes and ears wide open, life’s path before me is dedicated as a conduit for unique voices—both mine and others’—to emerge.

How are you living your purpose?
Through the nonprofit I co-founded, World Bicycle Relief (WBR), I have a beautiful opportunity to meet bicycle recipients where they live, hear their voices, photograph their stories, and share what they have to tell. Serving people whose basic transportation options are limited to mostly walking with The Power of Bicycles alongside an amazingly talented global team is wonderful work.

Kelley Kosow, Author of The Integrity Advantage

What is your life’s purpose?
My life’s purpose is to keep opening myself up to deeper levels of connection with myself, the Universe, and divine wisdom so I can teach and inspire others to reveal and release outdated and non-serving beliefs and behaviors, so they can own all of who they are and live in alignment with their deepest truths and grandest desires and dance in delight of liberation and the magic of manifestation.

George Frankel, CEO of Eternal Reefs

What is your life’s purpose?
My life purpose is to change how our society views death using the value of memorialization as a tool to help heal the earth and create something benefiting future generations.

How are you living your purpose?
As CEO of the non-profit Eternal Reefs, I get to introduce people and families to the idea of there being a social value in death and giving back. Eternal Reefs is a non-profit which takes a person’s cremated remains and mixes them with environmentally-friendly concrete to form a gigantic reef ball which is then placed at the bottom of the ocean to replenish the ocean’s diminishing natural reef systems. We see significant marine life growth on reef balls in as little as three months in the natural marine environment. Reef balls placed together over time create a new artificial, engineered reef system that mimics Mother Nature.
