In January, I wrote this post about the many benefits that entrepreneurs gain from volunteering. Today’s post adds to this theme by sharing a recent interview conducted by Steve Gladis, Ph.D., a leadership speaker and executive coach based in Fairfax, Virginia.
Gladis’ guest is Len Forkas, who started both a company and a nonprofit in his 40s (you can learn more about his entrepreneurial journey from this post). In the interview, Forkas discusses how his upbringing shaped his views about volunteer work, the role it played to help him achieve his goals, and the leadership skills he learned from this experience.
Here’s the video for those who might like to take a look.
