On today’s show, I have Natalie Silverstein, an author, consultant, nonprofit founder, and passionate advocate for family and youth service.
Her latest book, Simple Acts: The Busy Teens Guide to Making a Difference, was created to help adolescents and teens discover their passion and purpose through acts of kindness and service to others.
She believes you don’t need to change the world to make a big impact. Even the smallest stone thrown into the water creates a ripple. Teens CAN make a meaningful difference – one simple act at a time.
