GSP 021: The Power of Giving Back with Yosef Francisco Sigaud
How do you think the world would be like if 1 billion of us volunteered just 1 hour per week to doing good? Think about that question.
In this episode, I have the pleasure of interviewing the Founder & CEO of ShareNest, Yosef Francisco Sigaud. Originally from Brazil, Yosef was lucky enough to get a scholarship to play tennis, at Purdue University Fort Wayne, where he got his engineering degree. He then went on to get his MBA at Barry University in Miami, Florida. He always dreamed of making big money and living that lavish lifestyle that so many of us pursue. Although he did achieve this dream, he soon realized how miserable he was inside. Life could not be about that, he said. He had it all but was still not fulfilled. He decided to quit everything to go volunteer for a non-profit for 8 months. This changed his life.
He soon understood the power of giving back. “When you are doing good for the world you are also doing good for yourself”, he added.
When he realized how big the gap was between the world GDP and giving back he felt he had to do something about it. That’s when he built ShareNest. A platform that connects people that want to do good to non-profit organizations. His mission is to foster more giving in the world!
Without further ado, it’s time to Get Social!
