Episode Summary: As you may know, I don’t come from a family where I learned about the importance of giving from an early age. But as I grew into an adult there was one thing that burned in my heart – the ability to give. Give because I could, give to those who are less fortunate, give because it’s a sign of unconditional love. It’s one of the reasons I am so happy to share my conversation with Arlene Cogen with you. It’s especially important to me after having just written my first tithe check of 2021 (a check that was five figures, by the way.)

If you have been questioning how you can leave an indelible mark on the lives of others, you’re going to love my conversation with Arlene. Arlene had the blessing to learn philanthropy at her kitchen table because her father had a heart to give to others and he taught her the value of giving anonymously to boot. Grab a pen and paper and prepare to learn how to become a philanthropist based on the way you live today.

Yes, today.

I can’t wait for Arlene to share her principle of Living to Give with you!
