Cole Hatter is an entrepreneur and the creator of Thrive: Make Money Matter, the conference for entrepreneurs and business professionals who want to discover practical income-growing business strategies, create a positive impact in the world, and leave a lasting legacy.
We explore Cole’s story, what you can expect from Thrive 2017, and how he uses his platform to have a game-changing impact in the lives of others.
Finding Your Community & Making an Impact
At a young age, Cole’s family and community exposed him to a life of giving, making an impact, and living a life of purpose. This made a big imprint on his life, and it’s guided his career course.
Even if you didn’t grow up in a supporting community or don’t have one now, it’s not too late to find a group of people that share your core values and wants to make a difference in the world. It’s just a matter of plugging in and finding those communities.
We all have habits, hobbies, passions, and careers, so it’s just a matter of identifying what those things are and finding people to share them with you. You have to take a quick survey of who you are to find connecting points.
Turning Adversity into Impact
When Cole was young, he had two car accidents in two months that left him physically broken, and he was emotionally broken after losing two friends. Cole knew he couldn’t waste the rest of his life feeling sorry for surviving, so now he lives life big enough to honor all three of them.
Thrive: Make Money Matter
Cole’s life is dedicated to changing the world, and he saw that there were a lot of other people who also wanted to own businesses that do the same. So he decided to start an event, called it Thrive, and tried to fill a room with entrepreneurs who want to make money AND make their money matter.
Cole started the first Thrive because he wanted to share this message with the world, and he put $500,000 of his own money on the line to make it happen.
The event gets awesome speakers – previous speakers include Gary Vaynerchuk, Jack Canfield, John Lee Dumas, Grant Cardone, Lewis Howes, and more – but, surprisingly (and appropriately), attendees say that their favorite part is the community of like-minded individuals who want to change the world.
