EP 67 - Scott Harrison: Finding Redemption, Starting Over and The Keys To Calling
Does this season of life have you craving freedom from your past? If you've been longing to find the way back to your calling with greater faith, meaning or service, this week's episode might be the perfect place to start. Paula sits down with Scott Harrison, the founder of Charity: Water for an intimate conversation about his experience as a modern-day prodigal son. 

By the world's standards, Scott had it all as one of the top nightclub promoters in NYC. But then - amidst an endless cycle of drugs, booze and models - he tells Paula how experiencing "numbness," both spiritually and physically, brought him back to what he was craving most - a life marked by purpose and kindness. Paula and Scott discuss outrunning your past, forgiving yourself and best practices for making big pivots in pursuit of your calling. Also, hear all about his ongoing mission to bring clean water to underserved communities around the world - and how streaming services like Spotify are inspiring him to disrupt the future of charitable giving.
