With so much success, it's easy to slip into that feeling of self-satisfaction and forget about those that need support. I try to remind myself everyday that the true sign of success is giving back. I began by setting aside a portion of my sales to donate to The American Cancer Society. The impact of this hit home for me when my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Thankfully, he received fantastic treatment and is doing well today!
In that spirit of donating, last year I expanded my charitible donations to extend beyond The American Cancer Society to include The American Diabetes Association in honor of my mother who suffers daily, and The Humane Society of the United States.
