242: 8 Million Lives Saved (and He's Just Getting Started) – with Scott Harrison

Scott Harrison was one of New York City’s premier nightclub promoters, doing drugs, drinking heavily, deeply unfulfilled and on the verge of self-destructing. In today’s podcast episode, he tells me his riveting story of how he came to declare spiritual, moral, and emotional bankruptcy – and uses it as a catalyst to change the world…

Now, Scott has made lists such as Fortune’s 40 Under 40, Forbes’ Impact 30, and was #10 onFast Company’s 100 most creative people in business, as well as a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader. He is the CEO and founder of Charity Water, an organization dedicated to helping people in developing nations get access to clean and safe drinking water. Charity Water has provided clean drinking water to over 8.5 million people in 26 countries.

I’ve been enamored with Scott’s story, passion, and vision – which are the basis of his new book, Thirst: A Story of Redemption, Compassion, and a Mission to Bring Clean Water to the World.

Today, he joins the podcast to share insights from his remarkable journey and personal transformation, in a way that can inspire you to do the same.

During today’s conversation, here’s what you’ll learn:

  • How Scott went from being immersed in nightlife to leading one of the most impactful global charities in the world.

  • Why Scott paid $500 a month to spend 2 years in post-war Liberia - and how it inspired him to start Charity Water.

  • What Scott did before he checked into his volunteer mission - and how changing his environment allowed him to drastically change his habits.

  • Why so many people don't trust charities - and how Scott used this information to build an organization that addressed those objections.

  • The power of Scott’s innovative 100% model - and how it has inspired other charities to take action and reject apathy.
