This is my attempt to convince you to read Jacqueline Novogratz's book - The Blue Sweater... and to change your life, and the world, for the better

Here is the 3 step process:

1. "If you truly want to help don't assume you know what the problem is"

2. "You should focus on being more interested than interesting"

3. Use your "moral imagination", take some chances, and do it - now...
