It’s a time for Giving Well!

It’s a time for Giving Well!

  1. My $80K/year job doesn’t interest me nor does it utilize my skills and talents
  2. I’m feeling very unfulfilled, like I’m letting my family down, like I could be doing something so much better, making a much better contribution.
  3. Should I work on my weaknesses or focus on my strengths?
  4. I’m a framing carpenter and believe me, it’s not a passion of mine but just a way to pay the bills.
