Episode 91 – Chris Field

In A Skirt Podcast

Episode 91 – Chris Field Today’s guest is Chris Field. I don’t even know where to start with Chris. He is so many things and fulfills so many roles. He’s a husband, father, runner, race director, author, non-profit director, and on and on. Basically, though, he’s a doer. He fills needs. He shows up. He takes action. In this episode, we talk about Chris’s new book: A Billion Hours of Good. I read the book right before it launched and it is a life changer. Chris explains how you do not need all your ducks in a row before you decide to do good and bring change to your community. You just need one percent of your day and whatever skills and resources you already have. With his book, you’ll learn how to grow compassion, find courage, and ignite your creativity. When you’re done with this episode, I strongly encourage you to read A Billion Hours of Good. I have a link to the listing on Amazon in my show notes. I also have a link to Chris’s Facebook page and the non-profit he founded, the Mercy Project. This episode is sponsored by Ucan.

How You Can Change Your World 14 Minutes at a Time with Chris Field Founder of MercyProject.net

Champion Hope with Lantz Howard

Are you looking for your confidence and clarity to do the things that you value the most? Are you struggling to find time or money to show up and make a difference? Chris Field and Lantz Howard dive into a conversation about changing your world and why we need to see failure as an opportunity. Chris is the Founder of MercyProject.net and author of the new book A Billion Hours of Good: How to Change Your World 14 Minutes at a Time. Chris was adrift, depressed, and gaining weight when he realized that he was not living in alignment with his best gifts. Since that time Chris and Mercy Project have rescued and reintegrated 181 child slaves from Ghana, Africa. Chris debunks the myth about why we don't give up our time and money more often in order to show up in the world and make a difference. Grab a copy of the book and begin to clarify your best YES so you can say no to the noise and gluttony that modern life offers. You are a champion and others need your presence to offer hope.  "A billion hours is equivalent to 114,000 years. That's how much good we're going to do together. Just 14 minutes at a time. You don't need more money, or time, or even another election cycle to bring transformational change to your community. What you need is to believe that daily microdoses of good over years and years can create a great return. Stop waiting for the big change moment and seize the good that you can do today. Join Chris in pledging 1 percent of your time (14 minutes a day) to make the world a better place. Learn how to solve old problems in new ways, and walk with Chris as he shows you how he started Mercy Project-a nonprofit committed to ending child trafficking in Ghana. See how compassion and care can serve as rocket fuel for deep courage and untapped creativity. Our responsibility in a world filled with suffering is to care, show up, and act. Not once, not twice, but a little bit every day for the rest of our lives. Accept this invitation and join a global movement for extraordinary good. Impossible alone. Transformational together." Wow. This book came at just the right time for me. In fact, it is probably just the right time for our world. I found myself smiling and nodding as I quickly turned page after page. Chris Field inspires through excellent story-telling but also provides a practical blueprint for us all to follow to create A Billion Hours of Good 14 minutes at a time. I want to share this book with everyone. ―Terri Dorsey, Director of Executive Development, Boys & Girls Clubs of America In A Billion Hours of Good, Chris pilots a metaphorical lawnmower. He clears a path by anticipating excuses and mowing them over. Chris started with my heart and then nimbly made his way into the part of my brain that too easily generates retorts-and in that very spot he worked his magic. Using pragmatism and relatable stories, Chris showed me I am capable of doing hard things, motivated me to do hard things, and helped me believe in my ability to make a meaningful impact in the world-in just 14 minutes a day. ―Corey Oliver, Former Senior HR leader at Nike and Deloitte -- You can find out more about Lantz Howard at ChampionHope.com and schedule your free Ask Lantz Anything at ChampionHope.com --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/champion-hope/support
