11. The Power of Purpose


The Power of Purpose.

Simon Neylan is an experienced executive who is currently the General Manager of Alinta Apparel, as well as the Founder and Director of two start up businesses, Jangler and Schoolink

It is fair to say Simon is a guy who likes to keep himself busy!

I first met Simon a couple of years back. I remember it so clearly. We sat in a cafe in our local area and Simon shared with me some of his story and how he was developing a mobile app that he hoped would revolutionise the act of giving. Ever since, he is someone I am proud to call a friend.

Now, I don’t know why I didn’t explore it at the time, but I never asked why he was so passionate about what he was doing.

It wasn’t until a conversation we had a couple of months back that he shared a deeper meaning to his work.

Sharing that story and understanding how his purpose drives everything he does, is the focus of our conversation today.

    I loved No. 11 and hung onto every word. What a great story of the power of purpose and how that can drive us to make the world a better place and to care and help others in need.

    Great job to you both!
