“I thought it was the weakest thing ever (to see a psychologist)….Yet, without that today, some of the challenges we’re going through, some the changes we’re going through, i’d fall apart. I’m now seeing just more and more the importance as we grow of building those support networks that are strong.” - Daniel Flynn
Daniel Flynn is the co-founder and managing director of Thankyou. Thankyou is a social enterprise committed to ending global poverty in this lifetime by committing 100% of their profits to those who need it most. As well as running a multinational Social Enterprise Daniel has a beautiful wife Justine, who is also a co-founder at Thankyou, and son Jed.
I’ve met Daniel several times now and every time he has impressed me with his creativity, enthusiasm, humility, authenticity and generosity. He truly is being the change he wants to see in the world and helping hundreds of thousands of people along the way. I hope you take as much inspiration as I did from this episode and start to embody Daniel’s motto that, “impossibility is only someone’s opinion, not a fact”.
