Dan Pallotta has disrupted the non-profit sector because of one simple premise - He dared to dream big. Not only that, but he encouraged non-profits to dream big as well and get the support they deserve.
It is very difficult to understand the non-profit world at first glance, but Dan has done an excellent job helping people know how to evaluate and support different charities. He recently released a book called "The Everyday Philanthropist" that details everything you need to know about your own charitable habits, and how they interact with non-profits.
Dan is probably best known for his record setting Ted Talk "The way we think about charity is dead wrong". If you're interested in learning more about helping others through philanthropy, I highly suggest you check out Dan's work.

Your happiness is about YOU. I understand that there are real priorities in life - kids, family, bills, health. And sometimes offering support in those areas comes at the expense of your own happiness. But the truth is, you won't be able to offer yourself fully and effectively in those areas until you take care of yourself. Make your happiness a priority!
Today's tip is inspired by a spoken-word piece written and performed by Adam Roa. It starts off talking about how society negatively shapes our reality to leverage monetary gain, and then goes into how we can go about seeking the truth.
After observing my nephew over the holidays, I was reminded what it's like to be a child. Love with all your heart, be present in the moment, and treat people as you want to without fear or social conditioning. I encourage you to incorporate some of the same.
Happiness is part of an equation. It's not exclusively about how much positivity you have adding to your life, but also how much negativity is pulling from your life. It's human nature, but we need to be intentional about not giving energy to things we don't want.
