Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the #GivingAwards presented by Chase. I sat down with Katie Meyler, who was awarded 1 MILLION dollars that night for her charity, the More Than Me Foundation (www.morethanme.org). Their mission (taken from their website) is below:
Many of you want to get into the non-profit space and really make things happen. Here were Katie's 3 tips on how to make things happen:
1. Decide to do it and follow through. Don't look back.
2. Be okay with living on couches. (because sometimes, that's what you have to do until you get everything together)
3. It doesn't HAVE to be a non-profit or a charity. You can work for a company that does good in the world but still pays you a salary.
