Episode 047: Caroline Nettle on Traveling the World, Discovering Your Passion, and Planting 1 Million Trees
Have you ever seen a need in the world and felt a passion boil up inside of you? You saw a problem and knew something needed to be done. Then a voice said, "What are you going to do about it?" That's exactly what happened to today's guest. And she chose to do something big.
Today's guest heard all the same statistics that many of us have heard. She saw the same problems. And she decided to do something with the passion she felt for a major issue in the world.
Fifty years ago, there were nearly ten times more trees in the world than there are today. We've lost nearly ten billion trees. So, what can we do about that? How about starting with planting one million?
That's what Caroline Nettle is doing. Her tree planting holidays are helping to address a global problem. All because she took action.
After many years in the corporate world travelling around the globe, Caroline Nettle embarked on a journey of self discovery and healing. Having achieved this, she has decided that what she would like to do with the remainder of her years is to plant trees where they are needed most. Her project, called Tree Planting Holidays, will be offering holidays to those that want to help her to plant a forest in Botswana.
