Sacha has a dream to live in a world of equality where every person has the resources and opportunities to follow their passions and dreams. So in 2008 and at the age of 18, Sacha founded the brand, Sachas. Realising that businesses exist as a result of their communities, environment and people, Sacha wanted to give back. Half. So he created the Sachas 50/50 Business Model where 50% of the profits made from the sale of all Sachas products go to Sachas Foundation.We had interviewed Sacha about his book and venture in September 2010. Now Sachas has launched a new section called Sachas' stories which documents ispirational people and their stories. We caught up with him to learn more about this new initiative.
What inspired Sachas Stories?
When I was writing Teens Big Dreams – the motivational and life skills book for teenagers which has inspired people of all ages – I wanted to show the world the amazing and inspiring things that young people were doing. I decided to ask my two good friends, Roger Mouawad and Melissa Abu-Gazaleh, if they were interested in sharing their Life Story, challenges, successes, dreams and passions with the readers. Roger, an incredibly talented international dancer and performer, and Melissa, a very inspiring individual who started the Best Catch Foundation at the age of 19, both agreed to share their Life Stories – and the response was absolutely phenomenal.
Teens Big Dreams was released in 2010 and received with incredible success. Many people personally told me that they loved the sharing of the Life Stories.
From the start, I had a much bigger vision for the Life Stories.
I have been inspired by the wisdom and Life Stories of so many people, and I wanted to create a Place where People Inspire People.
Introducing: Sachas Stories.
How will Sachas Stories help people?
We live in a world abundant with resources and opportunities and it is because of the resources and opportunities around me that I have been able to follow my passions and dreams.
My dream is for everyone to follow their passions and dreams, and I realise that for that to happen we need to be able to share our resources and opportunities with others around us.
That is why people writing their Life Stories are also asked to write about the resources and opportunities that will help them in the pursuit of their passions and dreams, so that those who may have them, are able to share them.
After all, it is by helping each other, that we are able to make the world a better place.

Nathan Murphy Entrepreneur, Founder of Audio High School Based in Sydney, Australia
Raised in Sydney's western suburbs as an only child, I think of myself as having had a typically normal upbringing. It was only in 2010, after I had graduated high school that my life took a drastic change. It is then I realised how every moment you breathe is incredibly valuable. In the space of 12 months I've been kicked out of home, lived on the streets, eaten from dumpsters, been a fisherman, launched a business and opened my mind to possibility.
My learning really began when I became homeless. Having your life…
