Nonprofit Influencer Manager (with Bri McKoy)

It’s very life-giving and exciting to be able to take people to be a voice for the voiceless.

If I had a dollar for every time I wished I had a dollar, I’d be the Bill Gates of dollars.  Is money really where it’s at though?  John Lennon and The Beatles sure didn’t think so.  Mark Zuckerberg recently decided to begin the process of giving 99% of his Facebook shares toward learning, curing disease, connecting people and building strong communities.  That is A LOT of dollars!  It seems for many people that make it to the top financially there’s still a longing to do more, to give back.  One of the best ways to give back is to find a great non-profit that you believe in, and support it.  Today’s guest, Bri McKoy, just so happens to work for a great non-profit that you can believe in.  She’ll tell us all about it, and the way her incredibly unique job helps support its goal.

It keeps me so grounded, and I feel really grateful to have that experience. I think it’s extremely hard living in America to be grounded.
I become a stalker. I basically read their blog, as much of it as I can. What are they posting, what makes them happy, what makes them sad.
