Becoming Your Best | The Principles of Highly Successful Leaders
Episode 361 - Finding And Living Your Passion with Adam Tank
Finding our purpose, the "why" that takes us out of bed every morning, and what we are really passionate about is not something that'll come into our minds through introspection or contemplation; it'll come out by trying a whole bunch of different things.
In today's episode, Adam Tank joins us to talk about purpose, sustainability, and self-improvement. Adam is the Chief Customer Officer at Transcend. He founded a robotics company inside General Electric, spun it out of the Fortune 100 behemoth into a Fortune 50 behemoth, and sold it to a publicly traded company. Adam also invented a revolutionary robotic device that helped over 60 million people to get clean water.
Throughout our conversation, Adam shared how he got in touch with his purpose, the books that inspired him to pursue entrepreneurship and interrupt the "9 to 5 way of seeing life" he grew up in. We also talk about Adam's project on helping people access clean water, his work with convicted felons, the teachings from working with them, and so much more.
Tune in to uncover the path to get in touch with your passion.
