Whether you think so or not, you live in a bubble.

Gret Glyer, the founder of DonorSee, didn’t realize that until he got far outside his bubble.

And he got so far outside it that he wanted to change other people’s bubbles.

Gret grew up in Fairfax, Virginia in the second-wealthiest county in the United States (just behind Teton County in Wyoming where my business partner Bill lives, according to some lists.)

So when he moved to Malawi—the poorest country in the world as of 2014—his bubble popped. He went there to teach math, but ended up doing his own social-work projects more than anything.

In the three years he lived there, Gret built more than 100 houses for homeless people and also crowdfunded a $100,000 girls’ school designed to give the country an educational boost to exit poverty.

After that experience, he decided he could help more projects like that all over the world with his own company. So he founded DonorSee, a visual platform for donations that lets people see who they’re helping as well as the results of the aid quickly.  

You wouldn’t know it now, but Gret’s first attempt to raise $800 to build a house stopped short at $100 until he changed one mentality that was holding him back.

He had to pop his bubble.

If you want to know how to take a leap of faith like Indiana Jones, this episode is for you.
