Scott Harrison — Work That Has No End

About This Episode

At 28 years old, Scott Harrison had it all. A top nightclub promoter in New York City, his life was an endless cycle of drugs, booze, models on repeat. But 10 years in, he was unhappy and morally bankrupt. Walking away from everything, Harrison spent the next 16 months on a hospital ship in West Africa and discovered his true calling. In 2006, with no money and less than no experience, Harrison founded charity: water.

Today, Scott Harrison’s work at charity: water has mobilized over one million donors around the world to fund over 28,000 water projects in 26 countries that will serve more than 8.2 million people with clean drinking water. Scott has also been recognized on Fortune's 40 under 40 list, Forbes’ Impact 30 list, and was ranked #10 in Fast Company's 100 Most Creative People in Business.

In his return for a second conversation on the podcast, Branden and Scott dissect his newest book Thirst: an inspiring personal story of compassion, redemption, second chances, and the transformative power within us all.

This week’s episode is supported by Who Gives a Crap.

“It should be cool to give. It should be cool to be generous. It should be cool to say yes to helping out.”
