I am happy to present the second installment of the Good Citizen Interview Series, where I talk with inspiring individuals in the areas of service and volunteerism. This week I interviewed someone I have known for quite a while, Jeff Hoffman.
I'm grateful for the love and support of family and friends, who were the steadfast light. And, grateful for the new people the struggles brought into my life. Of course, I am also very thankful I had the opportunity to be of service to others.
The more talented and skilled a non-profit groups paid staff is, the greater good it can do in pursuit of its cause. The challenge is, typically, positions in the non-profit sector pay less than similar positions on the for profit side.
