Through my advisory practice, I hope as ONE person to provide, influence or affect ONE million people or dollars to change the world. It is the power of ONE person to make a difference that motivates me. I call it my "one for one million challenge". This is a call to action to myself and others to embrace philanthropy and leverage their best attributes to make a positive difference in our community and our world.
