Embracing New HeartWork as the Communications Manager at InspireHUB Technologies Inc.

Embracing New HeartWork as the Communications Manager at InspireHUB Technologies Inc.

Last month I made a pretty big change. I accepted an offer to serve as the Communications Manager for a mobile app company called InspireHUB Technologies Inc.. I’ve been doing my own thing for a really long time, but what made me want to say yes to these folks was the fact that they created a technology in response to a request from the late Nelson Mandela. He was distressed by the pediatric healthcare crisis in South Africa, and the number of women and infants that were dying because of it. (Every year at least 1,600 mothers die due to complications of pregnancy & childbirth. 20,000 babies are stillborn & another 22,000 die before they reach one month of age. In total, at least 75,000 children die before their fifth birthday.)

C’mon in and I’ll tell you why I’m so excited to have been given the opportunity to be both an Evangelist and Bard for the amazing band of better world scouts at InspireHUB, and the superheroes they serve …

Opportunity Makers, Embracing Differences, and Creating Something Meaningful.

Opportunity Makers, Embracing Differences, and Creating Something Meaningful.

“We all want to use our talents to create something meaningful with our lives. But how to get started?”

This is a pretty great invitation, and the one that Forbes columnist, Kare Anderson, gave in her TED Talk back in September of 2014.

We are often confronted by moments of connection with people who really challenge our ideas, our values and our points of view. Shutting the door to that connection may be the easiest and most comfortable thing to do, but there are so many incredible opportunities that are lost when we do that.

One of the things that really resonated with me was a particular observation Kare made about people who are the greatest “opportunity makers”:

“They’re not affronted by differences. They’re fascinated by them.”

Kare issued a resonant challenge:

“To re-imagine a world where we use our best talents together more often to accomplish greater things together than we could on our own.”
