    Who is The Entrepreneur Helping Create Jobs All Over The World

    Young Entrepreneur Charlotte Pearce 1

    Charlotte Pearce is a 24-years-old entrepreneur. She first started to work for herself while at school, selling makeup and bags online until she founded Inkpact when she graduated from the University of Southampton.

    Pearce learned that handwritten communication was crucial for businesses wanting to stand out with personalized communication, while their competitors were printing the same letters and thank you notes over and over again. So she created Inkpact to fulfill this need by helping business owners by doing all the writing for them.

    Each note card and letter are handwritten in fountain pen and ink by a home-based writer. With a fast growing team of highly qualified writers, Pearce can handle big numbers at a quick pace. And with her business structure, anyone can be a writer so she is actually offering an opportunity to those who might struggle to find a job or don’t have time for full-time employment.

    Some of the writers are stay-at-home mothers and senior citizens; writers only require internet access and some calligraphy skills so Pearce is confident she can create millions of jobs and help a lot of people in the process. She also hopes her story can inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs of all ages.

    As Charlotte explains, she saw an opportunity and grab it; she didn’t have a business at the time, is was just the thought that she could do something to help solve that particular need. She made it happen with hard work and today has a profitable company that is also helping many people that can work from home.

    The trick is to make young people think and understand that opportunities are all around them; they just need to pay attention, take a leap of faith and work hard to make it happen. Everyone can do it; all it requires is an open mind, willingness to do something brilliant and keep a positive thinking throughout. You can catch up with Charlotte’s inspirational work on Inkpact blog and follow her on Twitter.

    Single Dad and Daughter Plant Tree in the Middle of Oxford Street

    Tree in Oxford Street and Cute Message From Arabela

    Single Dad Neil Cornelius and his daughter Arabella, from London, are huge fans of gardening, they started with sunflowers, but soon they run out space in their garden, that was when they decided to plant some around the trees in the street where they live. Their neighbors loved the treat, and one can see little thank you notes they have left near the flowers. This positive response encouraged Neil and Bella to do something bigger. They decided to plant a tree at Oxford Street.

    Neil Cornelius and Arabella

    Neil would walk by the famous London street every day to work, so he noticed when one of the trees was vandalized and later taken by the council. And that the only thing left was a hole in the ground. He and Arabela also noticed that after a while the tree hadn’t been replaced and suddenly an idea had formed.

    Arabela said to BBC Breakfast that there was just one empty hole in the sidewalk and it didn’t look very nice. So she used her own pocket money to buy a new tree, and her dad planted it for her.

    Arabella then attached a cute message to the tree asking passersby to enjoy and respect it:

    “Dear everyone, my name is Arabella Cornelius. I am 7. I have planted this tree here for everyone to watch it grow and enjoy. Please respect it as I bought it with my own money. Plus my daddy risked getting arrested planting it!”

    Tiny Tree at Oxford Street

    Neil said to Metro newspaper that all he wanted to do was to teach his daughter to do nice things without expecting anything in return, but the gesture went viral as members of the public noticed the tiny tree and started to share the story on social media.

    Everyone now knows their kind gesture, including the local council, who thanked Neil and Bella for their thoughtful action. You can see more on this cute story by following Neil on Instagram.

    This Happy Ending Story of a Baby Hippo Found All Alone in Zambia Will Make You Tear Up

    Douglas the Abandoned Baby Hippo

    Volunteers in Zambia found a deserted baby Hippo of nearly two weeks old. The baby was all alone and in a pretty bad shape so they took him to the Conservation Lower Zambezi. CLZ is an organization where people devote their time to the conservation of the natural resources in the Lower Zambezi National Park.

    The little one stayed in the non-profit for three months. Once strong and healthy the volunteers arrange for his transfer to the Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust. And with the help of Proflight Zambia, the baby hippo is finally at home.

    Watch the sweet video below and fall in love with Douglas’ story:

    The youngster is now well at his new residence, and after a funny misunderstanding regarding his gender it is confirmed by Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust that the baby is a male hippopotamus:

    “Several vets and conservation people thought he was a she. So, Douglas became ‘Douglina’ instead. Three months from the time ‘she’ came to Chipembele, Douglina had an amorous encounter with a water barrel, it was very evident that boy bits were involved… So Douglina is once again and permanently ‘Douglas’.”

    After having a bumpy start to his life Douglas is well and growing. He befriended two local dogs Coco and Molly, which may appear to be an odd friendship for a hippo. But that doesn’t matter for Douglas. He is a happy hippo now.

    Marriage is considered to be an unbreakable institution in many countries, but that is a concept that is entirely foreign to many Icelanders. Iceland has a high rate of divorce and the greatest percentage of working mothers in Europe. If that sounds like a formula to wreck society, then you should seriously start reviewing your view of the world. Kids in Iceland are raised to be confident people and Iceland is rated the happiest people on the planet.

    Zach Sobiech

    Zach Sobiech was a very special being, at the age of 14 he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer); and at the age of 17, he was told by doctors that he had up to one year to live. He then decided that he wanted to enjoy his life as much as he could and spend quality time with his family and friends.

    During his final days, Zach wrote a song called “Clouds” as a way to say goodbye to his loved ones. The song touched many people with his positive way of seeing life despite his illness. In his own words, he wanted to be remembered as “a kid that went down fighting and didn’t really loose”.

    Zach Sobiech passed away one year ago on May 20th, 2013 and the guys from SoulPancake did a follow-up short film on his family, you can watch it here:

    This Simple and Sweet Love Story Will Make Your Heart Melt

    Kismet Diner Laura Singing

    Created by Cornetto, this heartwarming short film called “Kismet Diner” features beautiful songs from Lotte Mullan and showcase a sweet love story between a young waitress named Laura and a regular customer from the diner where she works.

    Kismet Diner Love Story   Kismet Diner Laura Learning Sign Language

    The film explores the fact we are all different, sometimes because of our tastes, opinions, and personal beliefs. But also, because each and every one of us sees and hears differently too. It is frustrating when you try to reach someone, and despite all your efforts, nothing changes it.

    Kismet Diner Final Song

    Nonetheless, when you discover what makes another person different you will understand what needs to be done.  That will be the key to make yourself heard; although it is not without sacrifice, life is simple but yet full of obstacles. It all goes down to having the will to make yourself heard and face all that life throws at you.

    This sweet film reminds us that despite the sacrifices, life is worth living; in other words, the light at the end of the tunnel is worth pursuing. Wake up, smell the bacon and start pursuing what you want, don’t think about the hardship, instead, keep your eyes fixed on the prize and don’t look back.

    Mother Find That Son is Gay and Writes The Letter Every Mom Should

    Mother's Letter to Gay Son

    Mother's Letter to Gay Son

    When Zach Gibson decided to come out on Facebook, he received an unexpected response from his mother saying “I’m so proud of you.” That is the summing up of a support letter she wrote, left on his bedroom door, and then later shared with the world on Facebook.

    After being shared by the NO H8 Campaign, Michelle McClain’s letter went on to be shared by thousands of people, touching hearts all around the world.

    Here’s the full transcription of the letter:

    Zach, I was surprised by your Facebook post where you came out. I want you to know that I love you unconditionally. I love you with my actions, not just my words. I’m so proud of you. You are the bravest person I know. I’ll fight for you always. Your sexual orientation does not define you. You are still the boy who forever won my heart. The only thing that concerns me is the number of empty soda cups and tea bottles in your room. Throw them away before ants come inside. I love you always, Mom.

    This is an amazing example of parenting, and Zach was keen to publicly reply to his mom in the comments section of the NO H8 post by saying “When I came out last week, I never expected this much support. I knew my mom would be fine with it, but I never expected this letter and I never expected these many people to spread it around. This means so much.

    Zach’s mom followed up soon with a status update soon after: McClain followed up her son’s gratitude with a status update of her own.

    “This note is not fake,” she said, adding that she wrote it after reading her son’s Facebook post about coming out. “And I meant every word. I’m so proud of him!”

    6-Year-Old Aaralyn and Brother Izzy Performing their Song ‘Zombie Skin’

    6-Year-Old Aaralyn and Brother Izzy Performing their Song 'Zombie Skin'

    This is awesome, and in a matter of fact, this is so fantastic, so brilliant, in so many ways that I don’t even know where to start. These two kids are Aaralyn and Izzy a brother and sister, drummer and singer, duo performing Zombie Skin, a type of music that will surprise you, to say the least. I guess the first thing that comes to my mind is the fact that these kids, brother, and sister, must be living in one of the best households of the world, with the most awesome parents. Just think about it for a moment, there’s nothing like having the freedom to just be yourself and pursue whatever you would like to do, especially when other people may think that what you like to do is a bit strange.

    While I prefer to listen to something a bit less angry, such as Sigur Ros,–which by-the-way I must have mentioned hundreds of times already–I once, back in my teenage years, was quite into heavy metal, which is not quite what they are doing but I can safely say is reasonably close to it, and even though I wouldn’t add Zombie Skin to my favorite playlist, I must say that I quite like it, in a way, is a lovely song.

    It would be amazing if they continue working on their talents to create a successful band, but even if they don’t do it, I’m sure they will grown to become very confident human beings, and most likely extremely happy adults. I suppose is the most important thing I get from them, and I hope that one day, by the time that I become a father myself, I have the wisdom to be as supportive as their parents show to be.

    When will a dependence racket the young cathedral?

    12-Year-Old Severn Suzuki Gives an Inspirational Speech at the Rio’s 1992 United Nations Earth Summit

    Severn Suzuki Speaks at UN Earth Summit in Rio 1992

    Severn Suzuki is the type of person that was born to make this a better world. At age 9, she started the Environmental Children’s Organization (ECO) to bring together children who are committed to learning and teaching other kids about the environmental issues.

    The ECO traveled from Canada to Brazil in 1992 to attend the UN Earth Summit, where a brave 12-years-old Severn gave a powerful speech that silenced leaders of nations from all around the world attending the summit. Her speech made such a mark that is frequently invited to many UN conferences.

    If you like this, here’s her speech in full:

    Hello, I’m Severn Suzuki, speaking for ECO-the Environmental Children’s Organization. We are a group of twelve and thirteen-year-olds trying to make a difference: Vanessa Suttie, Morgan Geisler, Michelle Quigg and me. We raised all the money to come here five thousand miles to tell you, adults, you must change your ways.

    Coming up here today, I have no hidden agendas. I am fighting for my future. Losing my future is not like losing an election or a few points on the stock market. I am here to speak for all generations to come. I am here to speak on behalf of the starving children around the world whose cries go unheard. I am here to speak for the countless animals dying across this planet because they have nowhere left to go. I am afraid to go out in the sun now because of the holes in the ozone. I am afraid to breathe the air because I don’t know what chemicals are in it.

    I used to go fishing in Vancouver, my home, with my Dad until just a few years ago we found the fish full of cancers. And now we hear of animals and plants going extinct every day vanishing forever. In my life, I have dreamt of seeing the great herds of wild animals, jungles and rain forests full of birds and butterflies, but now I wonder of they will even exist for my children to see. Did you have to worry about these things when you were my age?

    All this is happening before our eyes and yet we act as if we have all the time we want and all the solutions. I’m only a child and I don’t have all the solutions, but I want you to realize, neither do you. You don’t know how to bring the salmon back up a dead stream. You don’t know how to bring back an animal now extinct. And you can’t bring back the forests that once grew where there is now desert.

    If you don’t know how to fix it, please stop breaking it!

    At school even in kindergarten, you teach us how to behave in the world. You teach us: not to fight with others, to work things out, to respect elders, to clean up our mess, not to hurt other creatures, to share- not be greedy. Then why do you go out and do the things you tell us not to do? Do not forget why you are attending these conferences, who you’re doing this for we are your own children. You are deciding what kind of world we are growing up in. Parents should be able to comfort their children by saying “everything’s going to be all right”, “it’s not the end of the world|, and “we’re doing the best we can”. But I don’t think you can say that to us anymore. Are we even on your list of priorities?

    My Dad always says, ‘You are what you do, not what you say.’ Well, what you do makes me cry at night. You grown-ups say you love us, but I challenge you. Please make your actions reflect your words. Thank you.

    It seems it is true what people say about kids having more knowledge than many adults.Does anyone remember this? This is a speech that will never be forgotten.
