We talk a lot about living a life of meaning and purpose, but the sad reality is that most of us TALK about it, but so few of us actually take action on the things we say we want to do.
Bridget Hilton and Joe Huff are on a mission to change that, and they’re showing us simple ways to introduce profound changes into our lives and into our work.
They want us all to become Experiential Billionaires, people who create lives that are rich in experiences – intentionally living out a life that centers on relationships, meaning, and impact, and in this episode of Storyhouse, they show us how to do it.
Bridget Hilton and Joe Huff are obsessed with experiences. Determined to unlock the secrets of their remarkable power to transform lives, they have spent years interviewing social science experts, conducting the largest study on experiences ever done, and turning themselves into experiential guinea pigs. Together they have trained to be samurai, danced with the northern lights, tracked silverback gorillas in a hail storm, stood face-to-face with a hungry lion on safari, visited 50+ countries and all 50 states, absorbed life lessons from Maasai Mara tribesmen, sped across a glacier on a dogsled, built schools for kids in need, lived with monks, helped give over 50,000 people hearing, swum with sharks, and explored the experiential riches life has to offer.
Today, they are also the co-founders of LSTN, the world’s first inspirational electronics company. After seeing a viral video of someone hearing her own voice for the first time, co-founders Bridget Hilton and Joe Huff decided to focus their efforts on creating change through the power of sound & music, and make this incredible moment a reality for others around the globe.
Since 2012, LSTN has traveled to help more than 50,000 people receive hearing aids through the proceeds from their headphones, earbuds and speakers with non-profit partner, Starkey Hearing Foundation. Access to hearing has improved the lives of these individuals, their families and communities and has since created a positive ripple effect with millions of people around the world.
