"No matter what field you work in - there's always a way to give back to people you care about and who most need it. Doing work that benefits the greater good always comes with benefits that are hard to replicate in other places." [25:00]

"Volunteering is an example where it's not about how much money you have or a specific skill set - it can just be about your time and spending time with somebody who could use your experise. Finding a cause that really speaks to you is a great way to do that." [12:00]
