Get On Purpose with Karen James
About This Show
We’ve heard it time and time again, this idea of purpose being at the heart of our lives, but have you stopped to look at what ‘living on purpose’ actually means for you?
The world is an increasingly noisy place, at home, at work and pretty much everywhere you go. How do you distil it all and make sure you’re not filling time with busy activities which may not actually matter?
How do you work, or run a business, or live your life and not get to the end of your day, or year or worse your life and say what was that all about?
In the words of Mark Twain, “Two of the most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why”.
Get on Purpose is the podcast where we fuse what matters most in your life, and business, to create your blueprint and framework to get clear, get moving and get results. Each week your host, the informed and infectious Karen James, guides you towards what matters most as the key to living on purpose in business and in life.

John is the Founder and CEO of Seed. His passion is helping individuals and organisations to develop and articulate a clear sense of identity and purpose, and to find the places where their own stories fit with God’s story and God’s purposes. Too often people feel like living a life aligned with God’s purposes is too difficult to grasp, so John developed Seed as a vehicle to help give people the agency, support, resources, networks and confidence to create a new chapter to their stories. His hope and prayer is that Seed will help many to step into their God-given purpose, for the sake of the world and the glory of God.
Prior to founding Seed John was engaged in working for social change as National Director of Micah Challenge Australia for almost 6 years. John led and developed a growing coalition of Christian development agencies, churches and individuals to campaign on multiple issues affecting the global poor. He has a Masters in Theology from Regent College in Canada.
John lives in Sydney with his beautiful wife Allie and three daughters.
