Mission #111

On Board: Ione Butler
Mission: Uplifting Content

Sometimes it feels like there’s no way to avoid being brought down by all the bad news. If you pay attention to the news or spend any time on social media, you’ll eventually hear about wars, murders, environmental problems, social injustices, and so much more. After this constant onslaught, it can be hard to remember that there’s good in the world, too. Of course, it’s important to know about current events. But it’s also important not to drown in the negativity. Seeing more good can keep your own positive spirit shining bright and help you light up the world.

Ione Butler agrees, and that’s why she started the incredible Uplifting Content. Just a couple years after its launch, the site already has millions of followers who enjoy its short, amazing videos that show the positive in the world and leave you feeling good. In addition to being an uplifting visionary, Ione is a talented actress and an all-around amazing person. I’m honored to have her as a friend, and after you hear this episode, I think you’ll adore her as much as I do!
