Because none of use made it to where we are today without a little help. So let's either recognize who helped us and return the favor, or pay it forward and help an entirely different person/organization/group.
Giving back allows us to allocate our resources to the places where we want to see changes made in this world. And to create a better world for ourselves and for the generations to come!
This post was largely inspired and influenced by ideas contained in the book Bloomberg by Bloomberg With Invaluable Help From Matthew Winkler.
Thank you Mike Bloomberg for writing a stellar autobiography and for bringing such a disruptive and value-adding organization into this world! I am grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from some of the brightest minds at your organization.
