Do You Love To Give Back?2 Min Read

Do You Love to Give Back?2 min read


Yesterday evening, my wife and I had dinner with our friends Ann and Peter Young at their home in Ben Lomond.

They are both wonderful people who I initially met while walking my dogs in a nearby park during the pandemic.

Peter is a contractor, musician, and jazz lover. We connected immediately because of our mutual interest in music, and one of the few people I’ve ever met who knew anything about jazz.

Ann, originally from Jamaica, has been a molecular biologist, entrepreneur, and business coach. She’s also the ultimate volunteer who always gives back. She got me to donate blood for the first time in maybe 40 years!

Not only did they invite us for dinner, but they also invited our little dogs, who had a great time and were smiling all evening!

During dinner, I asked Ann if I could interview her for Ordinary Visionaries. She certainly fits the bill as someone who’s had a vision and taken action to make a difference—over and over again.

But like many people, she doesn’t see herself as an Ordinary Visionary despite all her impressive accomplishments.

And it’s that kind of modesty that makes her even more of an Ordinary Visionary! She does all the things she does not to be recognized but because she loves her work and loves to give back.

I guess that you’re also an Ordinary Visionary. You’ve done some great things in your life, and you’ve made a real difference. And it would be a shame not to share your story with others.

I hope you’ve had a chance to watch some of the Ordinary Visionary interviews I’ve done over the past few months.

The thing you’ll notice about those I’ve interviewed is that they are simply ordinary people who have a passion for their work that inspires them.

I didn’t want to interview people and ask their opinions about things or have them promote their services. Instead, I’ve attempted to tap into their humanity, their values, and their commitment to doing work that matters.

By the end of April, I’ll have interviewed 35 Ordinary Visionaries. Then, I’ll take a much-needed break in May and resume interviews in June.

I hope I have the chance to interview you. If you think you just might be an Ordinary Visionary, go here and fill out an O.V. Profile.

Cheers, Robert
