Have you ever had an idea out of the blue, but didn’t know where to start developing it? On The BIGG Success Show, we tell the story of how one man is saving lives after putting an idea to action, and outline the steps he took. Read the show notes below.
The idea spark
In 2008, a man who was traveling for business, thought of a question one night while in his hotel room, and called the front desk. He asked, “What happens to the leftover soap?” The response was that it was thrown away.
Shawn Seipler started looking at some numbers:
-millions of bars of salvageable soap were going to waste.
– thousands of young children were dying from hygiene-related illnesses every day globally
– studies showed that regular hand washing could cut those deaths in half.
Based on his research, Seipler felt compelled to do something, and when he got home he put his idea to action.
