    BCWG S6:E35 Bob DePasquale * The Journey through Cancer, & Radical Generosity

    BCWG S6:E35 Bob DePasquale * The Journey through Cancer, & Radical Generosity

    Bob DePasquale's mission is to make the world a better place by encouraging people to find the blessings in tragedy and use their gifts to help others.

    When Bob was 18, he moved to NY for college.  While in football training camp, and just 5 days before September 11th, 2001, he was diagnosed with cancer.  In a very short period of time, his young, healthy life was turned upside down.

    You will have to listen to the conversation to hear how Bob applies the valleys of life to reach the peaks of the mountains, some already scaled while some yet are to be challenged and the lives we all can have an impact on if only we try.

    Cancer and how he beat it.
    Tim, the car, and 9/11.
    Why give so much?
    And just what heck is Web 1, 2 + 3?

    Connect with Bob via his website here.

    Show up to your job.
    Learn but also teach.
    But work hard.

    Amy and her younger brother help people know what is happening in sports, or should we say, the story around the sport. 

    If you will, water cooler talk for those days after the game.
    She looks at this as another 'tool in your tool belt'.  Be INFORMED!
    Hear about the typical day of this women entrepreneur.
    She just finished her MBA.
    Working from home works for her.

     

    She once flew around the world in 58 hours and 37 minutes, has lived internationally, and is a master of small talk, bringing people together, and the handwritten note.

    You can often find this married lady working with the entrepreneurship community nationwide, studying late at night for her MBA, catching up on pop culture with Bravo, and teaching her toddler son about sports.
