Today, we are in Charlotte, NC and have Kerry O’Connor, Executive Director of Dress for Success. We all know the importance of giving back and many of us choose to volunteer our time when we have more time and space to give. Volunteering your time is without a doubt a fabulous way to find fulfillment, meet people and pay it forward.
The point Kerry makes today is a strong one: if you can give an hour a month or a year and make a huge difference in someone’s life.

In this Episode...
Did you know there are Dress for Success organizations all over the world and probably one in your city now?
Charlotte, NC alone sees over 900 women in need every year!
Dress for Success is the Gold Standard when it comes to a non-profit organization. The organization empowers women worldwide to achieve economic independence. These women may not have the skills or the means to get started so Dress for Success supplies not only the business attire needed but also gives career development training along with a network of support.
Kerry shares the philosophy behind Dress for Success and takes us through the process of a candidate for their service experiences. She shares stories such as how one woman’s journey brought 6 people out of poverty and into a new location and life.
Breaking the chain of poverty can start with one person.
Today’s show will warm your heart and hopefully spark an interest to get out and find ways to give back. There is nothing more rewarding than to see the smile on the face of someone you have helped.
