Claire's hearty character was reminiscent of poignant words spoken by Jeff Hoffman, an entrepreneur who emits warmth and executes brilliant ideas into tangible realities. The two had something in common: They live full lives with generous hearts. So, If you believe in magic then naturally you believe in hard work, which is synonymous to doing something you love according to Hoffman.
Using a simple yet hard to live by formula, Hoffman instructed the Life Is Beautiful crowd on how to live a life permeated with outcome and potential.
Hoffman's formula is a set of values that I currently live by, but like so many social entrepreneurs, I stumble curtailing on the outskirts of success. How does one excel without connectivity? How does an ambitious, yet underprivileged dreamer gain access to facilitators of change and investors of companies, businesses and most of all, dreams? A simple formula for an entrepreneurial path is not that cohesive, but it's a great starting point. Pain arrives before gains are recognizable and more often than not, gains usually derive from a well-connected network. Not everyone is blessed with such a wealth of support.
"What we need is to connect people to networks," he began. "There's no grade system on the internet that helps people find each other. All of us have to pitch in together to build an informal network of connectivity. Help people find the specific individuals in the world that can scale and elevate them."
Claire literally and quite possibly has three more years left of life. Yet, she lives life jubilantly and inspires others while doing so.
