The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   In today’s show, we walk along a journey of success and travail, for the two are inextricably tied together. Joseph Drolshagen shares a convincing argument of the value of difficulty and how to use that difficulty for shaping the life you really want. The two questions Joseph asks every client are: (1) Where are you now” And, (2) Where do you want to be? He believes the answer to the second question, “Who do you want to be?” always comes down to a matter of personal vision.  We address those questions and many more on this entertaining and fabulously...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Our guest today, Lata Hamilton, is an inspiring Change Leadership and Confidence Expert, and the creator of “the Leading Successful Change Program” for Businesses, largely in Australia, although she has several international clients as well. In conversation with Lata, I came to realize that changes in business can only occur when individual people in the company change first.

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Living in the Orange County Bubble, many of us are unfamiliar with the personal and economic struggles that many (if not most) Americans face on a daily basis.  In my personal bubble I read that the market is great, but gas prices are up, and with those words I seem to feel that I have a grasp on our everyday economic state of affairs. Huh? It seems I have had my feet planted in mid-air. Did you know that very few Americans even have a meaningful investment in stocks. 93% of all stocks are owned by 10% of the population. And 80% of stocks are owned by old people. So,...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  At the age of 74, I am what’s called an early Baby Boomer. Maybe because of that, I am fascinated by the thoughts and motivations of younger generations like the Millennials and Gen Zs.  Although in our generation gaps, we have many common habits and values. Still, there are also significant differences, especially when it comes to “how to live your life.” My guest today, Tom Yankle, is an older millennial (at 40) who has a deep experience-based understanding of how people in the ages of 25-45 think about life.  Let’s see what he has to say…

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   It was probably couple of years ago that my good friend Terry Hershey brought up an idea that continues to leave me in a state of Wonder. He talked about Loitering in the Moment.   In fact, just a few weeks ago I wrote a blog on the subject and when I was chatting with Terry about doing a new podcast he suggested that be our topic. So here we are, Loitering in the Moment, that is resting in the present moment of a friend-to-friend recorded chat.  I am happy that you choose to join us today. Happy loitering!  LINKS Click here for a link to get a copy...

Show Notes   Our guest today is psychologist and spiritual director Dr Marshall Jenkins.   Marshall and I have been chatting off and on for a couple of months now.

Show Notes   I feel like this podcast may be one of the most important shows we have ever done. Our guest is Crisis Guide, Keith Page.

He makes stuff happen… Keith brings to us more than thirty years of walking through life with others. He is known for his empathy and compassion when he “holds space” as a witness to our times of grief… as well as times of discovery.  LINKS ...

Show Notes 

Today I plan to dedicate our show to an unsung but essential topic: I want to discuss the potential shortcomings related to economic and social aid to the Developing World, (or in old terms, 3rd World countries).

Basically, the question is this: is your investment in the poor and disenfranchised in the Developing World being administrated with the longer term needs of communities being considered, or… is it about short term walk away money?

My guest, Darrel Larson, has vast philanthropic experience in several foreign countries, including Fiji, the Philippines and several countries on the continent of Africa.

With hearts for developing the social good to the most needy in the world, Darrel and I will spend our time today discussing how oftentimes, our desire to serve the poor and disenfranchised can frequently result in short-term benefit, but longer term disadvantage.

I recently watched a documentary titled, Poverty Inc. (a quite informative and a bit disturb documentary) that developed the concept stated in Steve Corbett’s popular book, When Helping Hurts. The thesis: if we give resources such as money, or in my case water wells, without empowering the communities to assume responsibility of these gifts we have given them, the result can be “dependence on foreign aid,” instead of independence, self-determination and self-respect. Like the familiar adage, we are giving them fish, not teaching them to fish.

Today, we will discuss the idea of projects “with” locals verses projects “to” locals. Three types of giving will be discussed: Relief Giving, Alleviation from Poverty Giving, and finally, Developmental Giving.

My guest, Darrel Larson is a seasoned vet in international affairs regarding poverty. He is currently International Director of Sawyer Filters, which provides clean and safe water for thousands of homes across the world. Darrel is also founder of the non-profit, Give Clean Water, and he has served Outreach Pastor at two churches in San Diego.
