The Real Stories
What good will all of your success and wealth do if you fail to leverage your strengths to help others? Most successful individuals won’t end up as the next Bill Gates, using their wealth for philanthropic causes but there has to be more to life than just the accumulation riches, right?
On this episode of BEFULFILLED, you’ll hear from the talented and enthusiastic young leader, Cam Martinez. Cam manages the growth and operations of a membership association called “LVRG” where they offer lower prices on tools that entrepreneurs use to grow their businesses (i.e. Kajabi, ActiveCampaign, etc). Every time someone purchases their membership they donate a percentage to a non-profit called Feed A Billion.
