MY JOB Books in the News
If you’ve ever done anything to improve your situation in life, you know it took some effort. Whether it’s earning a degree, landing a new job, sealing an important relationship or improving your fitness, getting ahead isn’t going to happen without you taking some different steps.
It’s a revolutionary way of thinking as it expands the opportunities to take a career path you may have never thought of and thrive.
What would you do if you were lucky enough to come into a bit of money? Buy an expensive car? A big house? Or would you do something more people are considering — start a family foundation and try to make a difference in the world? Well, that’s what Suzanne Skees and the Skees Family Foundation have done.
The Skees Family Foundation (SFF) is just one of the more than 86,000 private foundations in the United States, and with a corpus of just over $2 million, we’re consistently the smallest foundation in the room at any peer gathering. Undeterred by the magnitude of the challenge, however, we’ve invested $1.7 million over fifteen years in efforts to end poverty.
Tis the season? In your mind, you know you should be counting your blessings and feeling gushy gratitude and tingling excitement, but what if you cannot summon any of those emotions? It’s been a really rough year, even for those of us who have shelter, safety, and food. It’s depression, it’s anxiety.
Empowerment examples work wonders when we feel and then take small action steps towards our own dreams. Author Suzanne Skees is a masterful storyteller and a woman who launched a non-profit organization to help end poverty. With her book titled MY JOB, she goes into details on how to empower others around the world.
