Publisher's Summary

The surprising breakthrough in Start Something Good is that anyone can find their purpose in life and give back to the world. This personal tale of transformation and redemption details how an immigrant stumbled his way towards a calling of improving people’s well-being globally. In 2007, Bartlomiej "Bart" Skorupa quit a promising career in management consulting and bought a one way ticket to Africa.

After a medical emergency in Madagascar transformed his vision, he started a nonprofit that empowered people from all walks of life to raise millions of dollars for social entrepreneurs creating a better world. 

Driven by stories of miserable failures and wild success, Bart outlines actionable insights that inspire you to craft a life of purpose, meaning, and selfless giving. No matter what kind of change you are considering, Start Something Good proves that every tool you need to act is already within your grasp.

An inspiring call to arms

Bart wove together a fascinating story about his ups and downs in leading a non-profit that helped partners all over the world start something good. His passion is on full display and is truly inspiring to anyone wondering how they can increase their positive impact on the world. I particularly enjoyed the call to arms to act and not wait for ideas to be perfect. Increasing choices for all parties is a new idea to me, and I have subsequently thought a lot about it. While I enjoy the high quality of the typical Audible readers, Bart narrating the book was a real treat. The passion in his voice is tangible.
