Taylor Quinn On Upgrading Education With Hampton Creek

On today’s episode of The Soulfully Optimized Life, I bring my friend Taylor Quinn, a social entrepreneur and badass humanitarian who’s representing Hampton Creek on a mission of upgrading education.

For those who don’t know about Hampton Creek yet, they’re a company that consistently questions: what would it look like if we started over?

They’ve brought this mentality in the food products they’ve created and recently sent Taylor on a mission to innovate the education system…starting in Liberia.

I hadn’t talked to Taylor for a while and was really curious to hear what he’d been up to in Liberia. We figured we could record our conversation to not only catch up, but also to add value to your life.

Some questions I ask…

  • What are some of the lessons you learned from creating a new education system in Liberia?
  • What inspired this humanitarian within you?
  • How soon after watching Invisible Children did you make your first trip out to Africa?
  • How did you raise the funds to go out on these philanthropic missions?
  • How are you upgrading education in Liberia?

What you’ll learn…

  • How one screening of Invisible Children changed Taylor’s entire life and set him on the path of social entrepreneurship and philanthropy.
  • Why Taylor’s fire to serve and contribute has never slowed down over the years.
  • How anybody can raise money to do great things for the world.
  • How students can connect with extraordinary CEOs.
  • Why the education system is due for a major upgrade and why Taylor believes entrepreneurship needs to be included in the curriculum.
