I had the incredible opportunity to speak with Gabe O’Neill of Kids Are Heroes a couple of weeks ago and was completely blown away by two things:
- His unwavering sense of mission.
- He uses only Twitter for social media actions.
Kids Are Heroes recently won the competition for Richard Branson’s first ever PitchTV show! In this video, I talk about my meeting with Gabe and the four success factors that contributed to his success:
- Solid sense of mission
- Remarkable content
- Be active with social media
- A reason to fight
