Welcome to Notion Impact
I’m so glad you are here.
There are three principles that have become central to my perspective towards the “sweat equity” you put into life, regardless of the pursuit one chooses. They are simply the Who, the What, and the Why. Many people wander aimlessly trying to find the answers to these questions in their life, but end up feeling lost. I’m extremely fortunate to have known mine for a large part of my life. That was the easy part. The hard part is taking the first step and maintaining momentum.
I often look for these core principles within people, whether entrepreneurs or not, because they help craft a narrative I can follow that should lead to their North Star, personally and professionally. And, because these principles are so important to my own life’s pursuits, I’m including them below and how they have lead me to create what is now Notion Impact.
It is my hope that more people seek and find this truth as they pursue their own vocations and ventures.
Knowing Your Who
Regardless of the pursuit one chooses, at the end of the day there is a human on the other side. Climate change, food security, gender equality, water scarcity, conflict, safety in your local city, you name it, there’s a human on the receiving side. Everything is interconnected.
Notion Impact was created specifically for people who have a strong bias towards impact on some level, either locally or globally, but face societal or systemic inequity due to identity, race, sex, disability, or any other human characteristic.
Knowing Your What
Knowing exactly what problem you are solving for and what solution you offer comes from intently listening with an empathic ear to your Who. Working closely with those who you are serving will lead you to develop your North Star.
Notion Impact strives to break down barriers to those facing systemic and societal obstacles by offering diversified resources, curated introductions, and deep reaching conversations that advance them towards their goals.
Knowing Your Why
Knowing your why begins with knowing yourself. As renowned founder coach, Jerry Colonna, talks about in his book Reboot, the concept of radical self-inquiry is about taking time to slow down so that we may ask ourselves the most important questions, such as “the why,” and how do you define success, and where does that definition come from?
I launched Notion Impact to provide a safe space for growing leaders to better understand themselves, their motivations, and their “why” by exploring the difficult questions. The end result is a much more resilient individual who is able to face obstacles, build a stronger support system, and surround themselves with community at the same time.
