On a day when snow was still present on the ground in Iceland, where spring still seems to be playing hard-to-get, I had the honour of a skype interview with Jay Boolkin of Promise or Pay. Jay is an Australian social entrepreneur who is currently stationed in hot and humid Cambodia. Our worlds presently couldn’t seem more different, but our common love of living a life of purpose brought us together on this March day.
