By Chris Field
What does it mean to live fully, abundantly, and with abandon?
Disrupting for Good shares powerful stories you’ve never heard about people like you who are taking on the challenges around them and reshaping lives. From a preschool teacher creating a cross generational program with a nearby nursing home to a young girl cleaning up the trash in her neighborhood, these stories proclaim the truth: anyone can make positive change.
Our world is in desperate need of people who talk less and do more. Change in our own lives and those around us begins when we ask good questions and then dream, dare, and do. In this book, Chris will show you how to become a disruptor who cannonballs off the cliffs of complacency and changes the world around you. Great adventures await all of us. Are you ready?
Chris Field has been disrupting since he ran for mayor at age nineteen. He has jumped out of airplanes, earned two degrees in ministry from Abilene Christian University, directed a camp for inner-city kids, completed more than twenty marathons, set multiple Guinness World Records, raised millions for charity, and spoken to thousands of young people about changing the world. His greatest passion is the non-profit he started in Ghana, Africa, to rescue child slaves out of the fishing industry. He and his wife, Stacey, have four awesome kids who remind them every day what matters the most.
Chris Field has assembled some fascinating stories of everyday individuals who are making a difference. These stories represent the dream, vision, and courage that live within us all if we dare to disrupt and take action. --Ricky Dickson, president, Blue Bell Creameries
We need business leaders who will solve the really big problems facing the world todayhunger, poverty, gender inequality, energy sustainability, and climate change. Chris' book is exactly the kind of disruption impetus they will need to get there. As Chris calls us to do in this book, I hope my students will disrupt the status quo and question the assumed as they pursue a new truth. I can't wait for my students to get their hands on this book. --Shannon Deer, PhD, CPA, director of MBA program and senior lecturer, Texas A&M University
As a Ghanaian, I am so thankful for the work Chris and Mercy Project are doing here in Ghana. In this book, Chris shines a light on the power of audacity, courage, selflessness, and creativity to disrupt the status quo in pursuit of social justice. This vivid journey into the lives of incredible individuals is a necessary read for anyone who wants to disrupt for good. --Joha Braimah, Ghana country director, Free the Slaves
