Nora Livingstone Teaser 00:00

There is a founder who every day she allows herself to fail 5 times, and be totally fine with it. They can be big or small fails.

So you stubbed your toe, you failed at walking, great job. You wrote something silly, you sent an email that had a typo in it, that's a failure. Don't worry about it, it's fine. I love that because all CEOs are just people.

Intro 00:28

Gresham Harkless 00:55

Hello. Hello. Hello. This is Gresh from the I AM CEO podcast. I have a very special guest on the show today. I have Nora Livingstone.

Nora, excited to have you on the show.

Nora Livingstone 01:04

I'm excited to be here. Thanks so much for having me again.

Gresham Harkless 01:08

Yes, absolutely. Super excited to have Nora back on the show. She's doing so many phenomenal things. So before we jump into that, I want to read a little bit more about Nora so you can hear about some of those awesome things.

Nora is the co-founder and CEO of Animal Experience International, an award-winning B Corp. She is a board member of the Cowichan Valley Women Against Violent Society. She has a passion for volunteering, decolonization and social advocacy. Instead of just living in the community, she wants to help people be real stakeholders in their communities and in their lives.

Nora also specializes in volunteer coordination, public engagement, crisis intervention and management and consent-based tourism. Like I mentioned, Nora is a former guests on episode number 14 of our podcast way back in the day. I think she is probably a little bit of a volunteering superhero because she's volunteered with Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, FEMA, Journey women, women for nature, and so many many more.

She's also the author of an ebook, and she's also the leader of the B Corporation, which we'll talk about, I'm sure a little bit more where they wish they received the best forward-winning B Corporation. She also is a self-proclaimed chameleon who doesn't mind getting their hands dirty as well. And just to kick everything off, she has a quote that I absolutely love where she said highlighting different community groups and sending money is not enough. We must go after individuals and help them become the leaders of their community. So absolutely love that Norah. She has so many gems. So super excited to have you back on the show.

Are you ready to speak to the I AM CEO community?

Nora Livingstone 02:43

Oh, my gosh. I'm ready to have you speak about me all the time. Just keep on going with that.
