 10. Inspirational quote that speaks to your business acumen:

“People need to understand that it’s not the schools job to find books for our kids—it’s our job. They don’t need another phone; they need books. That’s what we’re trying to do.”


11. How does the mission of Nomadness (living a life without boundaries, both literally and figuratively) fall in line with steps you have taken building your brand? Travel is created through inspiration; and for many individuals that inspiration came from having the opportunity to read, imagine, and aspire to re-define the social norms of society. With every book we donate we ensure that another future scholar has that same opportunity that was afforded to us.
