017: Monetizing Passion and Purpose with Gary Griffiths
Joining us to today is Gary Griffiths of Three Sides, Inc. In January of this year, Gary left his very successful corporate career in sales and marketing to start a for purpose business. Although Gary excelled at his corporate job, he was incredibly unhappy with his professional life and as a result his personal life suffered. As Gary puts it, he had two life changing experiences that put his personal happiness into true perspective. At the end of 2014 Gary was diagnosed with a form of skin cancer, something that has taken lives in his family before. It was shortly after that moment that Gary made the decision that he could no longer continue in a job that he despised so he quit. Soon after that Gary attended “Tropical Think Tank, an annual mastermind conference held in the Philippines. It was while he was attending this event that the second life changing moment occurred. He was struck with the idea of combining his marketing experience with his passion of contributing to worthwhile causes. The result of this union is his company, Three Sides, Inc., as well as a new mission statement, “Amplify, inspire and do more good”.
All of that and more on today’s episode of The Six Figure Side Gig.
