Brad and I continue to be blown away at the number of times we’ve benefited from good timing.
It was good timing over 2 yeas ago when we first met at a church men’s group. Both of us almost didn’t go, some groups got moved around, but in the end, we happened to be in the same group, and got to know each other from there.
A couple of posts ago, I shared the story of how we landed on our vision. Today, let me share the inside scoop on our mission. First of all, what’s the difference between a vision and a mission?

Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of the M121 Fellowship for Sustainable World Change, a newly designed program specifically for emerging world-changers aged 18-35. We’re looking for 121 passionate, thankful, energetic people to be part of a new community of world-changers, discover and utilize your true strengths, jump in on real-world social business experience, and be a new kind of ambassador for the poorest of the poor.
I’ve been part of starting or advising numerous start-ups over the years and I’m constantly amazed at how hard it is to come up with a vision that jumps off the page – one that anyone remotely connected to it can recite with enthusiasm. Especially early on, there’s so many directions to go, and so many dreams to capture. What are the most compelling vision statements you’ve ever heard in your life?
