It all started with this idea…
Once upon a time, not so many years ago, I was sitting in a cubicle in a big fancy office building in Boston. And then my whole life changed.
At the time I thought I was at the top of my career. I had an amazing job as a financial analyst in a billion dollar firm. It took me 10 years to climb to this particular rung on the corporate ladder. And then I saw a level of corporate corruption that would change my world. I became a whistleblower and left corporate America forever.
This was completely new ground for me and I was terrified. But something inside me caused me to take life by the horns and tackle the terrifying unknown, head on. I suddenly got this idea… what if I could use all my corporate knowledge and all of my expensive higher education to help PEOPLE instead of just helping wall street?
I had spent lots of time in board room meetings where decisions were made behind closed doors that affected the lives of thousands of people. People who’s voices were never heard. I wanted to see if I could help change this. So I sent out a call on my blog asking people to give their suggestions on how we would fix the problems in our world. I received over 300 essays from 37 countries! But these were more than just ideas, they were projects that people had been working on for decades.
And from this, The Fix the World Organization was born!
