Bill Gates – How To Avoid A Climate Disaster

I launched Impact Capital Partners because I obviously agree with Bill Gates that it is important to address the world’s most difficult issues. The essence of How To Avoid A Climate Disaster is that we are putting 51 billion tons of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere every year, and to avoid a climate disaster, we need to get the net number to ZERO within 30 years. Importantly, Bill is optimistic that we can solve these problems because of his belief in innovation, but we need breakthroughs to get there. Bill is focused on this challenge, and one of his goals for writing this book is to spark conversations so that we are all focused on it too. I highly recommend this book and I’m even placing it on my MUST READ LIST!

Movember

This year was my 13th year of growing my mustache (aka “MO) with Movember. I first grew my MO back in 2008 in honor of my father-in-law, Bruce Gibson, who passed away from prostate cancer, Movember’s flagship cause. Raising awareness and funds for Movember was a great fit for me, because it was a fun approach to a serious problem, and for 9 consecutive years (2009-2017) I was Movember’s top fundraiser in the US (aka the “MoMo” or the individual who raised the MOst MOney). Importantly, my work and my success with Movember reminded me to have fun and be passionate about what you do! #movember #menshealthissues
