What is your six-figure salary journey to purpose?
I just got inspired by this man – Luke Mickelson. A man who started a phenomenal charity Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) over in Idaho, USA back in 2012 after Leaving his six-figure salary (he was actually offered ownership in the business worth millions of dollars which he also turned down).
Now SHP runs over 200 chapters across 46 US states and 3 countries and helps over 28,000 kids receive for free their very own bunk beds that their parents just couldn’t afford before.
In this conversation, I asked how he made that tough decision to quit his well-paid job to focus on his charity. We discuss where purpose comes from, leaps of faith in life and leading decisions from good intentions and choosing a life path 50 years from now with no regrets.
I hope this inspires you to look for opportunities to live with purpose, and perhaps even prompt you to start your own SHP chapter in your community so kids with no bed can have one too.
Here’s the interview:
Luke has been featured in US national news stories for his charity work and dedication to serving his community. His humans helping humans philosophy has earned him a spot as a CNN Hero Top 10 candidate, an NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt special, and interviews on the NBC’s Today Show, People Magazine, Good Morning America and many others. Luke has a passion for service and he continues to inspire others to act on their own Tiny Moments because he believes that true joy comes from serving others.
