If you know me at all, you know that giving back is core to all I do. I’ve always wanted to make a difference and knew at a young age that I wanted to be philanthropic when I grew up.
What I didn’t realize was that it wasn’t a destination to reach; I could give back at any age.
I used to think it would happen later in life when I had more resources and time. But as I’ve realized, it’s essential to incorporate giving back into my daily life. Thanks to words of wisdom from a mentor years ago, instead of waiting for later I’ve incorporated philanthropy into what I do.
By integrating it into my business and family, I’ve found purpose and created lasting memories while making an impact doing good. My kids have learned how to give back in different ways – like donating their time if they don’t have money to spare. Giving back is no longer a “someday” goal, it’s an “everyday” way of being.
Where can you give back? What are you waiting for?
