Hi, Craig here 🙂
Through a combination of hard work and luck I’ve gotten inside access to the brilliant minds and lives of people all over the world. Since 2015 I’ve tried to show respect and humility by giving back and sharing conversations through the Movers Mindset project. I’ve already been able to talk with over one hundred people, and have shared those conversations with thousands.
I have a lot more work to do, but I need help. If you are able, I would be honored if you could contribute by supporting the Movers Mindset project on Patreon.
…and I completely understand if that’s not feasible for you. If you want to help me in another way, simply go start a conversation with someone. Even better, start a conversation with someone you don’t already know. Ask questions. Practice listening. Repeat.
My personal mission is creating better conversations to spread understanding and compassion. And Movers Mindset is one of the things I do in service of my mission. Drop by https://constantine.name for my weekly email, my other podcasts, writing and more.
