About the Author
Devin D. Thorpe wrote Your Mark On The World while working as a professor of business in China, providing a transition from his successful corporate career to a life more focused on humanitarian service. Previously, he served as the Chief Financial Officer for a multinational corporation and as the treasurer of Nasdaq-listed multinational. His other experience included seven years of operating his own boutique investment bank and financial advisory business, and a time as the owner and manager of a mortgage company. He earned an MBA at Cornell University after spending two years on the staff of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee. Devin’s passion for volunteering was born at age eleven while shoveling mud out of a stranger’s flooded home.

His financial background and advice in that area made this book different from any other book like this that I have read. The financial piece may have been my favorite part. Though it's hard to say because some of the stories about what people are doing to help others were most inspiring.
Masterpiece. Devin Thorpe has written a one-of-a-kind book about service to causes. He skillfully interweaves true stories with practical and financial advice on giving. Two of my personal favorites were "Optimism from Despair" (Cystic Fibrosis) and "Rabbi with HEART" (Troubled Teens). This book is about ordinary people doing extraordinary feats. "Your Mark on the World" gets my highest level of recommendation.
