Have you ever had a dream of starting a new business, or service, or something you can offer to make a difference to those around you, but you haven’t take action because of self doubt, or because you don’t know where to begin, or other limiting thoughts? Nic Marchesi and his mate Lucas Patchett, age the of just 20, turned a simple idea, a van, a couple of washing machines and dryers into the ever growing organisation that Orange Sky is today. Orange Sky now offers 26 services across the country, which includes the addition of shower services and remote vehicles. Each week, these vans generate 8.53 tonnes of laundry and provide 95 showers to people in need. Most importantly though, Orange Sky volunteers have engaged in 124,052 hours of conversations to date, helping to challenge the perception of homelessness and positively connect communities all around Australia. During this chat, Nic dives into the power of sharing your dream and purpose, the importance of having the audacity to take action, how to deal with self doubt, and much much more.
