Advice for ‘Starting Something You Love’ – #18: Lucy Nightingale

by Rob on February 26, 2011

At the beginning of 2011 we started a campaign called Start Something You Love. We kicked it off on 19th January with our big Esc winter party in front of 600 people at Guanabara bar in central London.

We are now following it up with 365 bits of advice from real people who are doing interesting and inspirational things with their lives. And we asked them all the same question:

ESC’S QUESTION: “HOW CAN I START SOMETHING I LOVE?”

LUCY’S ANSWER:

If I was to advise someone doing a similar thing it would be to listen to people, never expect that as a westerner we know best.

Also the feedback and ideas from volunteers have been invaluable and with each team, SL Volunteers ethos and projects continue to develop and improve.
