Person on Purpose

BY CECE OJANY
@ VOL 22 ON MAR 04, 2014

Cece Ojany poses the question we always ask but never seem to find an answer to: What is our purpose? She explains how successful we can be by choosing to live a life true to ourselves rather than the life others expect of us. We must work not from motivation, which is finite, but from inspiration, which is always present.

Who is the other? The Living Library

BY CRISTINA MANCIGOTTI
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

Don't judge a book by its cover.

Identities can create barriers, instil a feeling of fear and lead us to act in different ways. Or they can spark curiosity and make us eager to understand different perceptions and realities. Cristina Mancigotti talks about projects she has been involved across Europe (Italy, Hungary, France) which foster dialogue, such as the Living Library.

Living the Dream: Why I Couldn’t Avoid Starting My Business

BY LUCAS CASAREZ
@ VOL 4 ON MAY 03, 2018

There are many reasons why starting a business is a horrible idea. You just had a child, your business model isn't sustainable, people don't want to pay for you to help them make better decisions with their finances. Screw rationality. Those are the reasons why Lucas Casarez thought he had no other choice. He discusses why Family, Values, and Love of Possibilities has propelled him to living a life that he loves.

The best stories are the unpredictable and he shares this chapter that is full of surprises, fun and humour filled personal stories, from first-year, that all turned into life lessons
