Have you ever had an idea so big that it feels impossible, too scary, too out of reach? If you have a calling that overwhelms you, join us to hear how Jeremy Cowart’s career has tackled all those questions and more. Jeremy has accomplished many wonderful callings including work as a humanitarian photographer, artist, author, and founder of The Purpose Hotel! We’ll discover the impact of Jeremy’s work and the mighty power behind the simple act of asking.
Jeremy has been all over the world, so I’m sure you’re curious to know where he’d go if he had to move somewhere outside of the US! You’ll also learn who he’d pick to narrate a movie about his life, what book has influenced him the most, and which 1900s era he’d travel back in time to visit and why! Most importantly, Jeremy shares with us what it means to run a business with purpose (you don’t want to miss hearing what it means for him to be creative)!
Named the “Most Influential Photographer on the Internet” by Huffington Post, Forbes and Yahoo in 2014, Jeremy Cowart is an award-winning photographer, artist, and entrepreneur whose mission in life is to “explore the intersection of creativity and empathy.” Jeremy has published four books and is a sought-after speaker, having presented at TEDx, the United Nations and creative conferences across the country.
