I was super-fortunate to get Mr. Tim McDonald on the show this week. Tim is the former Director of Community at The Huffington Post and current Purveyor of Purpose at BTC Revolutions. As it turns out, I was introduced to Tim through past Work Talk Show guest – and awesome woman! – Dorie Clark. And, of course, that makes sense. Why? Well Tim’s passion is connecting people with purpose.

The power of connections.

During this episode …

  • Tim and I talk about IRL, Face-to-Face, and in person.
  • Tim explains that it’s not just passion, but instead passion with a purpose.
  • My favorite Venn Diagram of all time (and Tim’s too!)
  • Tim shares how he used organize fund raisers as a … wait for it … 6th grader!
  • Tim tells the secret to making money through connections (sort of).
  • Tim told us that it’s important to find what you can do, then find what you love in what you do.
  • Tim tells us why we need to join No Kid Hungry.

Finally, if you know someone who bleeds passion (or maybe it’s you), please email me at djwaldow at gmail dot com. Oh, and if you have a connection to LeBron James, please let me know. I think he’d be a great person to talk to about his passion for basketball. #DeadSerious
