Reasons for Hope

Free Chapter of the MINDSET ZONE Book

“If we get together as a community to make a difference and keep hope alive, then it is possible to make change.”

– Ana Melikian

I recently had the opportunity of seeing the premiere of Jane Goodall’s Reasons for Hope here at the Arizona Science Center with my 14-year-old daughter. Reasons for Hope is a documentary film that highlights Jane Goodall’s work as a primatologist and her mission to inspire people—especially the youth—to be active in the world and drive change. The premier was truly an incredible event and having my daughter see the film with me warmed my heart. Reasons for Hope also made me realize how hope is vital to driving change for us, the ones around us, and the world.

In this episode, I discuss Jane Goodall’s Reasons for Hope and outline its five inspiring stories. I share my goal of earning the B Corporation certification for my business and explain why doing so is important to me. I emphasize the value of spreading stories of hope and having role models. I also highlight the need to use all the tools in our toolbox to drive impact on nature and environmental preservation and offer advice on what you can do to help heal the planet we live on.
