What gets me out of bed in the morning

The opportunity to work towards a goal whether short, medium or long term and the ability to see or measure the tangible result. When combining the above with the chance to interact and work with incredibly friendly and equally driven people on interesting and varied challenges, staying in bed doesn’t seem as attractive anymore.

Also, the dread of having to rush or skip parts of my training program because otherwise I’ll be late for class or work.

An entrepreneur I admire

I really admire social entrepreneurs; innovators who take a business approach towards solving social and environmental problems. An example is Murray Fisher and Peter Malinowski, creators of the charity Billion Oyster Project. This charity aims to restore New York’s polluted and degraded harbour with the goal of ‘planting’ a billion oysters by 2035 (acting as water filters and catalysts for greater marine biodiversity), whilst at the same time educating New York’s students on all aspects of their operations ranging from sciences (marine conservation and ecology) to business (local restaurants and their supply chain) and law making (introducing bills on tax credits to incentivise restaurants donating oyster shells). All of this came from the founders, then directors of a school, seeing students grow oysters in the harbour.
