Have you found your life's purpose yet? For some people, like Jimmy Mitchell, it becomes clear through a moment of great tragedy. After suffering a terrible loss, the purpose for his life's work came into focus. Since then, he has profoundly influenced the lives of thousands of young people.
I first met Jimmy when he interviewed my daughters' band for his podcast. As we got to know him, it became clear he was truly an extraordinary person with a passion for changing lives, and I was curious to learn more.

With an older brother, younger sister, and parents who were high school sweethearts, these were joyful and adventurous years!
