Many of us are clamoring for a more meaningful and purposeful existence. We want more out of life than the 9 to 5 job and a paycheck. We want to make an impact. We crave the extraordinary.
We don’t want to live a mediocre life, settling for the daily grind. We want “one day” to not always be in the future, but to be something tangible that we can enjoy in this lifetime. And we never know when this lifetime will be over.
But we’re busy. More than ever before. It’s easy to forget that there are thousands of other people out there just like us that also want to live a more extraordinary and altruistically founded life.
This isn’t just about you. This is about everyone around you as well – your family, your friends, the chef at your favorite restaurant and the employees working down the street.
It’s about recognizing that passion within us that we all can feel and strive for. I worked with my son Jared Angaza to write Wisdom Meets Passion – a book that talks about joining generations and philosophies – not just in work, but in our overall perspective on the world.

Or that giant corporation came together with a great charity and profoundly impacted a community?
When “they” become “we” – what would this concept do to change our paradigm?
