Welcome to Transformation Talk. Every Thursday for a year, starting in September 2012, I’ll post an interview with someone who is a force for good in the world. These men and women have either deepened their passion or found their calling after experiencing a loss, trauma or diagnosis.
I want to broaden the conversation around grief and its transformative power. My hope is that in their words you’ll find echoes of your story. In their inspired actions, you’ll see yourself and your immense possibility.

This week’s interview is with Erin Giles, business philanthropy expert and founder of End Sex Trafficking Day. While this part of Erin’s story doesn’t include a death or medical diagnosis, many of us feel intense grief during financial struggles. What I love most about Erin’s story is how the simple act of allowing her heart to be deeply touched by an issue led her to taking inspired action, which in turn led to business success all while having a positive impact in the world.
