I first became aware of @brandenharvey a few years ago after stumbling on his Snapchat adventures in Africa.
.
.

I know “influencer marketing” is a thing now, but back then it was basically Branden pioneering the concept, first on Snapchat and then on Instagram.
.
.
Well sure, there was Kim, Khloe & the other K’s, but Branden was the anti-Kardashian---instead of spreading drama and chaos, he shared a message of kindness, empathy and doing good.
.
.
I’ve kept tabs on Branden and when he launched his #SoundsGood podcast, I tuned in and was immediately hooked!
.
.
It quickly became a favorite oasis of positivity and creativity and, along with The Moth, one of the podcasts that I always find time to listen! Go check it out on #SoundCloud.
.
.
(Sidebar: I love all the episodes, but he interviewed one of my heroes, @bradmontague , so go listen to that one first!)
.
.
Earlier this year, he launched an ambitious project on Kickstarter: Goodnewspaper - A printed newspaper full of good news with the goal of “Fighting against a world full of hate by celebrating the people, ideas & movements changing the world.”
.
.
See, he IS an optimist--a PRINT paper in 2017. That’s crazy, they said. But they don’t know Harvey.
.
.
Of course, he smashed all sorts of @kickstarter records, showed up in all sorts of papers around the world and exceeded his initial ask! And today, the inaugural edition of Goodnewspaper showed up in my mailbox!
.
.
I couldn’t be prouder of Branden and his @goodgoodgoodco team on the launch of this newspaper and more importantly, thank you for bringing so much positive energy into the world and into our social media feeds!
.
.
Hugs. Congrats. And best wishes for continued success---I can’t wait to see what you do next! In the meantime, go subscribe to #Goodnewspaper here: www.goodgoodgood.co
