Overall, this book was just not what I was expecting or hoping for.
WORKING FOR GOOD provides intuition and mindfulness exercises readers can practice to gain a better sense of who they and how they can do the most good in the world.
Useful for entrepreneurs seeking to establish socially responsible businesses and for anyone wanting more than a career by seeking to discern a call.
