Many of us are not aware of the possibilities that exist when we leverage the power of relationships.

In fact, many of the most meaningful contributions to the world have been achieved by a combination of people coming together with a shared purpose – or supporting each other to achieve their individual purposes. 

Something Bigger explores the inextricable links between purpose and partnership – helping you identify, evolve and scale the legacy of your impact in the world.

“We had an end purpose that was so wonderful that if we could make it become a reality, we were going to give it everything.”

“One plus one can equal a thousand— you are not going to do that on your own! One thing we aligned on was the idea that making a lot of money didn’t really turn us on in and of itself, or the idea of just building a business didn’t really turn us on. It was the idea that maybe the business could be utilized for something bigger.”

“We felt we could do this together and I had one set of skills, Barry had another set of skills, but we had a united mission, purpose, and a belief that we could actually do this.”

“We have a secret weapon and it’s not just the two of us but we have common goal, and our third partner in this is nature and conservation, so we have a higher goal and it’s a shared one and it’s mutual.”

“If it’s a big mission, it’s outside of reach, and that can be your North Star, that can help you in the tumultuous waters of highs and lows… and so you don’t lose your path. So having a big mission that’s worthy of all of the energy and all the sacrifices that you need to do if you’re creating something in this world.”
