Jeffrey Goodman is an international business advisor who incorporates innovative practices into thriving mid-sized companies. This talk is about a totally different approach to charity. Giving a couple of dollars might make you feel good, but how can you leverage it to a completely different level? Jeffrey explores these concepts on the show and shares the perfect example of how you can impact someone positively, even if they’ve impacted you negatively.

Jeffrey will share with you how he had over 20 of his websites hack the night before a huge launch. How he then found the hacker and turned the experience for the hacker, a 13 year old into a gift of great charity.
