170: Create Your IMPACT, Build a MOVEMENT, and Find Your NORTH STAR with Christen Brandt (encore!)

Are you someone who wants to make big changes happen in the world, but sometimes feel so overwhelmed by how to actually make those changes HAPPEN? How do you take steps to make shift happen on a real level, in a real lasting and mindful way?

Christen Brandt is an impact strategist and advisor dedicated to integrating impact across sectors. She is the co-founder of She’s the First, an international NGO dedicated to ensuring girls everywhere are educated, respected, and heard, as well as the co-author of Impact: A Step-by-Step Plan To Create the World You Want to Live In.

In this (semi-encore!) episode, we talk about:

  • how to find your North Star — the vison of the world that YOU want to work toward — and what to do with that information (esp if that sounds overwhelming)
  • how criticism and having a growth mindset can live side by side
  • how you can match your intentions to your impact
  • how to ensure that there’s action and energy behind the things you’re fighting for (because momentum can be fleeting)
  • And more!!
