Two years ago this week, Under 30 Changemakers founder Tara Byrne and I went through a five-day program that offered support in identifying what drives you and designing your life to pursue that purpose. The inspiration and relationships I found in that program, Mycelium’s Compass Project, changed my trajectory by instilling a sense that I could do the work that mattered most to me.
Seven months later, Tara and I made a month-long roadtrip to learn what it takes to create a transformative environment like this.
We found the healing power of a safe space to share fears and challenges at Watson University. We noted the commitment to transparency of the Unreasonable Institute team. We admired the mix of soft and hard skills that Experience Institute offers its students.
While we were learning about these impactful communities, Tara was busy building one herself.
