Recruiting for Good
November 19, 2012
Will You Matter in 500 Years. Quite simply we live our lives to live purposefully, joyfully, and passionately. And on a rare occasion, we have an opportunity to do something remarkable. For me, its a journey of 12 years to discover how to combine what I love to do most, which is find people great jobs, and continue to do so by impacting hundreds of lives. I just did not want to be recruiting for placements, or recruiting for money. I came up with the name Recruiting for Good. But it could not just be about me, it had to serve a higher purpose. Recruiting for Good is about serving people; generating proceeds collaboratively to share and make a difference in the world. It is about helping people save lives. Why not start your own cause to save lives today?
I am aware that this sounds outrages. But I am willing to risk my business sense to work collaboratively with people, and generate recruiting proceeds for the purpose of saving their loved ones; family, friends, and pets. Yesterday, I went to the crowdsourcing site Indiegogo and I was moved to tears, by the stories and 100?s of people looking for financial assistance to achieve life saving feats; including getting medical treatment for loved ones, or needing money to produce creative projects that will inspire humanity, or needing money to bring new programs that would facilitate education, mentoring and collaboration. In fact, I was so moved by Jillian Mercado’story, that I contacted her. Someone stole her wheelchair, and she is looking to raise money so she can have one back. The wheelchair allows her to live her life. Do you have a life saving cause that will inspire the community to help you?
Recruiting for Good can raise the necessary money to help people make a difference in the world. Why not start your own cause to save lives today?
I don’t know whether I will be remembered in 500 years. But I know that the time is right to do something remarkable today. And whether you want to be remembered in 500 years or you want to bring more meaning to your life, I would love to meet you and see how we can collaborate, care, and share. Together we can change the world one person at a time or at least save their life, or their loved ones lives. Why not start your own cause to save lives?
Are you ready to do something remarkable?

Stop Talking About Making a Difference + Start Making a Difference. What does making a difference even really mean? For me making a difference; is simply making someone smile, laugh, or make someone feel good about themselves. We often forget it is the simplest and kindest things we do, that make all the difference in the world. Every restaurant, I go to, I engage the servers and bus boys with intelligent conversation, I ask intriguing questions, and I care about how they are doing in their life. I am curious about how I am affecting people.
My belief is that anything that impacts anybody in the world in a positive way is making a difference. For me making it personal and meaningful is important. For others it may not. For me, I love to have impact-full relationships that leave a lasting impression. How will I be remembered? Is a constant reminder of what my energy and context needs to be. Every day is a precious opportunity to make a difference in someone's life.
The truth of it is the only way to make a difference is to be in action, to risk, and move in any direction. We can all talk about making a difference until we are blue in the face. I am in a men's organization, where we aspire to be leaders in life, but the lack of follow through is a contentious way of sitting and waiting for right time to act. The time is now. The best way to get started on a mission to making a difference is by asking questions. Asking questions like what does making a difference mean to me? How can I make a difference? What am I willing to do to make a difference? And what do I want to be remembered for?
So are you ready to stop talking about making a difference and start making a difference? No, that is perfectly ok with me. But if you are inspired to be part of 5%, where every moment is precious, and every moment is an opportunity to live great lives; then contact me today, I want more intentional friends who want to make a difference today..
