Today we are sitting down with the incredible Chris Field, founder of the Mercy Project, author of two books, career entrepreneur, and Father.
As an individual Chris had the opportunity to visit Ghana on a mission where he encountered children who had been trafficked and sold to fishermen. Leaving those children behind as he returned home became the catalyst for what is now The Mercy Project.
By introducing a new fishing method that eliminates the need for extra labor, Chris was able to negotiate the release of the trafficked children, returning them home.
Since 2009 Mercy Project has aimed to be fully invested and involved in Ghana. From a fully Ghanian staff to innovating change for those who have been affected. Chris and his team are fully committed to creating positive change in the world.
In addition to changing hundreds of lives, raising kids, Ted Talks, and other motivational events; Chris wrote two incredible books “Disrupting for Good” and “A Billion Hours of Good.”
If you, like us, asked “ How the heck does he do all this?? Are the reason Field’s wrote both of his books. He hands us the keys to creating change and success, makes it simple, and tells us that, even if it is the smallest bit of change- it will have a snowball effect and create even more change.
So hustlers, with that we will leave you with Chris’s favorite quote in order to become inspired to change the world:
“My life was changed forever when my willingness to do great things outgrew my fear of failure”
