The Search For Meaning
The origins of No Typical Moments can be traced back to Andrew Gottlieb's senior year in college. He had a gut feeling that he needed to drastically mature in order to become a contributing member of society. He decided to start a blog called No Typical Moments to project the image of the person he envisioned himself becoming three to five years in the future. It was his way of figuring out who he was, what he wanted to do, and why he existed. These subconscious messages gave him the initial insight into the type of company he could form in he applied his unique skills towards a purpose bigger than himself.2011
A Call To Adventure
Like most entrepreneurs, Andrew had always considered launching No Typical Moments into an actual company, but he had no idea where to begin. So, with a daunting student loan approaching, he landed a job in what he deemed as his dream industry: sports and entertainment. However, what he found was unhappiness with his work as he didn't believe it enabled him to have a positive impact on people and the planet. This feeling of wanting to do something more with his life left him feeling lost and unsatisfied. In a move to redefine his destiny, he mustered the courage to leave his job, jumped into the unknown, and launched No Typical Moments.2012
Align with the GameChangers 500 not the Fortune 500
Even though No Typical Moments had grown into a profitable organization in year one, Andrew realized that the impact of his company could reach new heights if he was deliberate in who his company partnered with and the type of client he accepted. Instead of working with organizations just to fulfill bottom line quotas, the company would align with other purpose-driven businesses that believe what we believe. So in 2014, No Typical Moments rebranded the organization and set forth with a bold new goal: to align with the GameChangers 500 and not the Fortune 500. GameChangers 500 is a database of the top 500 purpose-driven organizations in the world. These companies are not only great at creating sustainable business models, but they maximize their impact to people and the planet.2014
In year two of No Typical Moments, the company launched its first technology project called Kindworks. The mobile app, which is the vision of George Blobe, has a mission to create the world's largest pay-it-forward platform via a mobile device. Version 1 of the application was launched in December of 2014 in which the app reached over 500 downloads, saw over 100 good deeds uploaded, and reached 12 countries in its first month of testing. The app has been featured in NEXTpittsburgh, ASPIRE Magazine, UNICEF, Yahoo Small Business, GOOD Magazine and YEC.2014
1% For The Plant
In addition to aligning with for-benefit organizations, in 2015 No Typical Moments joined 1% For the Planet. 1% For The Planet is a global movement of companies donating at least 1% of their annual net revenues to environmental organizations worldwide.2015
The Two-Week Notice
Andrew's first book that he co-authored, The Two-Week Notice, was released in June of 2015. He and two other authors, both young entrepreneurs, joined forces to write a book on the Entrepreneurial Journey from the millennial perspective. In the book, the authors take readers on a step-by-step journey, touching on topics such as a awakening the dreamer, discovering your passion, the resigning process, and all the way to finding a tribe that supports you and challenges you to be the greatest version of yourself.' Lisa Nichols, New York Times best selling author and CEO of Motivating the Masses, wrote the foreword for the book.2015
