80. Mo Money Mo Impact | How to Give A Million Dollars Strategically with Jay Papasan

Oct 9, 2017 | 0 comments

It’s easy to give something away… but do you know how to give strategically?   Business owners have a tremendous opportunity to do more than just make a profit – they can make a massive impact in the world, and this has been top of mind for us in light of the devastating natural disasters in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.   Jay Papasan recently took the stage to deliver a keynote about why making more money also means you can make a more significant impact, and how you can give a million dollars away strategically. We want to share this valuable training with you because we believe it’s vital that business owners leverage their businesses as vehicles for positive change.   If you want to learn more about strategic giving, you can join us for our first live event: What: The ONE Thing Goal Setting Retreat When: November 30th, 2017 – December 1st, 2017 Where: Austin, Texas How: the1thing.com/event  

The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode:

We want to challenge you: How can you begin to give?  What is the one thing you can do, immediately? Can you give your gratitude, your time, your leadership, or your wealth?   Think big about the type of legacy you want to leave, and then start by taking small actions.
