Ricky Kej is a Grammy winner and global ambassador for kindness. His Wikipedia page is too long to break down here, but he’s one of the most fascinating composers & philanthropists I have ever met. He composes world music for environmental consciousness, and his consummate activism makes you feel guilty for your consistent Netflix binge habits.
In this episode:
-Using music to create a global movement, and persuading political leaders by creating an emotional response in the public.
-How to be persistent to get what you want, by influencing people with more reach that you.
-How he doesn’t consider something unsuccessful a failure, but just needs to devote more time developing.
-How he is using music to change the education system for kids around the world.
