Used to be

Nathan Winograd used to be a lawyer before he organized the first no-kill shelter.

Scott Harrison used to be a club promoter before he brought access to clean water for millions.

Jim Ziolkowski used to be a vagabond before he started building schools.

Jacqueline Novogratz used to be a banker before she changed the way we look at philanthropy.

Brene Brown used to be a researcher before she went viral.

Danielle Button used to be an occupational therapist before she brought medical equipment to those in need.

Seth Godin used to be marketer before he made a ruckus.

John Wood used to be with Microsoft before he shined a light for those in the dark.

I guess we all used to be something ordinary before we did something extraordinary.

What did you use to be?
