Course Description

Living and working with purpose helps us live longer and better. It is having a reason beyond ourselves to get up in the morning and act to make things better for someone or something else. This course provides a simple framework to help you step back and create space to explore your purpose in clear, focused, and tangible ways. Finally, you will learn an easy way to implement the technique to act on your purpose and to find people and places to share and manifest your sense of purpose.
