Good episode? Give it some love!
Activism is on the rise, and you may be called to do your part and join—or perhaps lead—a movement that you are passionate about. But what, exactly, makes a movement successful? How do you gain the courage to follow the call? And how do you learn to speak with spiritual authority so that people will listen?
Eiji Morishita is the founder of Movement Makers, an organization that seeks to empower leaders in starting meaningful movements that impact millions of lives. He is passionate about igniting souls to ‘step into their calling and share their wisdom without apology.’ A catalyst for several movements himself, Eiji was an integral part of the spread of the Sushi Movement in North America and an effort to build schools in Guatemala. His genius lies in creating fun, easy and purposeful businesses.
Today, Eiji joins Emerald to explain why he is drawn to movement makers who focus on social impact. He shares the value in trusting the call, even if your vision is not perfect the first time out. Eiji also offers his take on the rise of activism as a societal trend, explaining why making the change is more important than getting credit for leading a particular movement.
