In this episode…

Speaking to Mike really got me juiced because so much of what he does is a result of his purpose orientation. By combining hard-earned business lessons, battle-tested experience, and a passion to serve others, Mike and DC Central Kitchen are channeling their purpose to make an impact not just in the Greater DC area but throughout the country. Every decision Mike makes has been filtered through his values and weighed for its potential impact. For me, and so many others, he  is a perfect example of how business smarts, combined with a conscious purpose, can take nonprofit efforts to much higher levels of impact and change. We’re lucky to have him.
