9781601633590: Compassionate Careers: Making a Living by Making a Difference

“What I see when I look into the eyes and hearts of the people who serve is joy. My invitation to you is to join them on compassionate careers.”

-Archbishop Desmond Tutu

“Life's too short for you not to wholeheartedly pursue your gifts and passions. If you find the right mission and the right role within that mission, that's such a powerful thing. But Compassionate Careers also does a favor for people in that it's not candy coated. There are real tradeoffs, and it helps people think about how to navigate that path.”

-Jonathan Reckford, Ceo of Habitat for Humanity

“It's no accident that the world's happiest and most successful people all seem to have one very important thing in common-they chose a life of passion and purpose, not just a paycheck.
