I wrote an article a few months ago advising business school students on how best to understand if impact investing was right for them…

Huge fan of this piece. Select quotes: "The idea of feeling fulfilled in your work…is seen as synonymous with doing what you love and, everyday, loving what you do. It seems to me to say that being uncomfortable, lonely, frustrated, pissed off with red tape process, isolated, or, in many instances, just really bored, cannot be part of it…It’s difficult to explain what it feels like to be deeply isolated, cut off from everything that is normal or comfortable to you, like my colleagues and I are, most of the time…If you are serious about impact and think that yes, a better future is possible for people around the world, the simple fact of the matter is that you need to spend time with and amongst those people whom you are looking to serve and work with…Doing this requires you to learn at the edge. Doing this requires sacrifice. And doing this requires a life that most people are too afraid, or simply too contented right now, to live.”

Quote
"When in community it can be very challenging to stay true to your values and yourself - so many influences, pressures, competitions, egos, etc. That’s why I emphasize personal space so much…it’s very important to be mindful if who you are associating with…not to allow one’s personal integrity to be compromised because you get caught up in group think or you’re not dealing with your daily thoughts and emotions responsibly…Intuition - it won’t lead you astray. It’s the time alone that allows one to integrate intuitive knowing with logical understanding…Real leaders lead by example. Real love is demonstrated through action…Real, authentic connection and the love that comes with it cannot be engineered or controlled."
