Unpaid work undertaken freely by individuals as a service to others
#211 - If you want to be inspired, motivated, impressed and see superhuman feats of strength, you don't have to spend a ton of money, sit in seat at a stadium, watching overpaid professional athletes. Instead, volunteer at an ultrarace! You won't just be sitting watching, you'll be a vital part of each runner's success, helping them get to the finish line. And that is an incredible feeling! And if that's not enough, if you're not already running ultras, it may just inspire you to start training to run one!

It's a brand new year, which means it's the perfect time to sit down and think about our goals and plans for 2023. Sometimes, it can be difficult to look forward.

In this short episode, Jim talks about the benefits he finds in taking the time to get outdoors. If you're listening to these podcasts, you're probably a pretty outdoorsy person, but take the time to think of the benefits of outdoor recreation: Exercise, a chance to unwind the mind from the job, and yes, even just getting into the sunshine and absorbing some of that Vitamin D love from above. While “self care” is a term with a bit of a woo-woo feel to it, it's necessary for people in high stress jobs to take time to depressurize, and getting out in nature is a great way to do it. Jim takes the time on deployments to plan his hikes for when he gets home; what's your outdoor stress release? Links: The Comfort Crisis by Michael Easter Like what we're doing?

It's a new year and LaVonda is kicking off 2023 with two Veritex bankers who share their stories of volunteering in the community. Does volunteering impact more than the community? The answer is yes and the stories that follow are moving!
The Church News recently launched a new Inside Church Headquarters series focusing on the work of the Presiding Bishopric of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Under the direction of the First Presidency, the Presiding Bishopric manages the temporal affairs of the Church, including — among many responsibilities — the building and maintenance of meetinghouses and temples, the distribution of humanitarian aid, and the production and distribution of gospel resources such as scriptures and hymnbooks. This episode of the Church News podcast includes excerpts from recent interviews with members of the Presiding Bishopric. As part of those interviews, Presiding Bishop Gérald Caussé, and his counselors — Bishop W. Christopher Waddell and Bishop L. Todd Budge — answer the critical question, “What does the Presiding Bishopric do?” as they support the temporal, and thus spiritual, affairs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Church News Podcast is a weekly podcast that invites listeners to make a journey of connection with members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across the globe. Host Sarah Jane Weaver, reporter and editor for The Church News for a quarter-century, shares a unique view of the stories, events, and most important people who form this international faith. With each episode, listeners are asked to embark on a journey to learn from one another and ponder, “What do I know now?” because of the experience.

In 1348, King Edward III founded a charity for impoverished men-at-arms, who came to be known as the Alms Knights (or Poor Knights). These knights were destitute because their families ransomed them in foreign wars, and their sovereign didn't see fit to leave them as beggars. He also wanted them to commit to praying for the souls of him and his descendants, setting up a chapel for this very purpose (all part of the Chantry Craze in the 14th century) In 1833, their name was changed by William IV to the Military Knights of Windsor.The order has continued to this day, unbroken for nearly seven hundred years. Over the centuries, there have been about six hundred and fifty such knights. Their backgrounds and careers have been very varied: one was a freed slave, another had to bind Casanova over to keep the peace. Most have had a military background (three have held the Victoria Cross) – but there have been astrologers, crusaders, mad baronets, politicians, artists,and con artists. Men-At-Alms tells their stories, set against the history of their times.Today's guest is Simon Durnford, one of the Military Knights of Windsor and author of Men-At-Alms: Six Centuries of The Military Knights of Windsor.” He discusses what it means to be part of a medieval institution and how the group has evolved over the centuries.

#29: If gratitude and giving back are part of your New Year's Intentions (or your any-time-of-the-year intentions), you'll love this conversation with Erik. After years of addiction to crystal meth and ultimately incarceration, Erik wasn't sure he had anything to give. Seeing the pain in his family's eyes was a catalyst to working toward a different way of living, diving into fitness, and finding recovery. Upon release from prison, Erik quickly learned that he had plenty to give, and began reaching out to help others.As generous as he is humble, Erik gives us a new understanding of what it means to volunteer, and how much giving back impacts both the giver and recipient. Like so many guests we've had on the show, Erik is amazed every day at the life he built in recovery, and the community that surrounds him.Join the Phoenix community by downloading The Phoenix App!

It is a way of traveling that is focused on experiencing the country, town, or specific location while connecting with the countrys history, people, food, and culture. Travel is not only about visiting places and taking pictures, but also about discovering new ideas and perspectives, a real investment in self. Traveling to new places allows you to get out of your comfort zone and try new experiences and challenges as you learn more about the world around you.The people you meet along the way, and the experiences you get to share with friends, are the things that will stay with you long after you have left. Whether they are a local person or a bunch of like-minded travelers, the memories you have from interacting with others can be fleeting or life-changing. Christine's guest today is Chantal Potgieter.Chantal combined her love for travel, volunteering work in communities, and operational skills learned working in a travel company to start Themba Travel.

Family holidays bring connection, but they also bring train wrecks. What to do?As always, bless yourself and others for their mistakes and move on.Learn from the mistake and leave it in the past where it is. Journal about your part in the upset. Make an imaginary box at the entrance to your house called The Past and once you've learned something from an upsetting event, place it in the box.Volunteering is vital. There is a Hindu proverb that goes something like this: help your brothers boat to the shore and yours arrives too.Reassess your needs.Learn something wonderful about your community, country or the world and share that on social media.1:15 Bless the train wrecks (the mistakes) and move on down the track.1:58 Learn from the mistake and leave it in the past where it is.2:09 Journal about your part in the upsets. What do I need to do to help myself?2:28 Make an imaginary box called The Past and use your imagination to dump upset feelings into the box but only do that once you have awareness about the situation because awareness is what changes us.3:01 Volunteering: helps others fills us up.3:25 Revisit you needs, are they reasonable, are they being met, will they actually help you.3:33 Learn something wonderful about your community, your country, the world and share that with others (instead of gossiping, complaining or fear mongering—none of which are good for you).

It's that time of year where everyone is trying to be good. Kids are trying to be good so Santa will show up. Adults are trying to be good on their diet so they can indulge at holiday meals. But are we also trying to do good? Listen in to Episode 91 of Just One Simple Thing to learn eight simple good things you can do in this holiday season.Author Stephen King once said, “Being good is commendable, but only when it is combined with doing good is it useful.”“Doing good” can be thought of in two ways. It can mean “good” as in “beneficial”. Do something helpful for someone that they may not be able to for themselves.It can also mean “good” as in “right”. Do the right thing at the right time. I think Paul had both of these meanings in mind when he encouraged the Galatians to do good.Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 (NIV)When we do things that benefit others, God will bless us in His way and in His timing. When we keep doing the right thing at the right time for our ministry or business, we'll reap a harvest if we don't give up. Either way, here are some good things you can keep doing, because it's good to do them.1. Stop checking social media continuously.It's good to have a solid social media strategy, but obsessing and measuring your value by the numbers is neither beneficial or the right thing to do.2. Tweet in the morning. If Twitter feels like a dark and negative place to you, try spending your time there in the early morning. A study showed that 5am to 6am is the happiest time on Twitter.3. Volunteer to help others.Volunteering doesn't have to involve a long-term commitment. It can be just a one-time thing that's helpful at the right time.4. Count your blessings everyday.Good things happened today. I know they did. Counting them up is another good thing.5. Send a note to someone you've never met, but admire.Reach out to someone and let them know how much you appreciate what they are doing.6. Ask “How Can I Help?"If you aren't sure what the good thing is in a difficult situation, ask that question and see how it changes the mood of the room.7. Share overheard compliments.When something good is said about someone and she may not know about it, sharing what you heard can help her quiet the voices in her head saying she isn't good enough.8. Make a helpful introduction.People know you trust them when you are willing to extend your circle to include them.ACTION STEP:Pick one and do it! Normally, I invite you to share your action step on social media so I can cheer you on, but this time, let's not do it for the cheers. Let's do it because doing good is the right thing.RESOURCES:Good Boundaries and Goodbyes: Loving Others with Losing the Best of Who You Are by Lysa TerKeurstThere's something you've been meaning to do. You know what it is. It's THAT thing.The Build A Better Year workshop will help you make 2023 the year you take your idea off the back burner and finally DO that thing, even if you don't think you have enough time to do it. Visit the Build A Better Year page to join us for this interactive workshop and get ready for next year to be better than this year.
My greatest accomplishments are not found in the real estate business, though. I am grateful for the career I have as a Realtor.

I enjoy playing around on our hobby farm too. I am excited to work with you soon. [PARTNER WITH US] Get instant 1-on-1 access to over 26 of the top agents in the country to help scale your business.

Retirees often turn to volunteering to help fill their days in a meaningful way. But the pandemic has caused isolation and fear and led to a drop in volunteerism, which after two years has led to a change in habit. We'll talk about the psychology of what's happening and how you can help fill the volunteer void.
Coach Stephen Thomas is 58 years old and has been carnivore since his 55th birthday. He holds a BSc. (Hons.) having studied physiology and health sciences. In the UK he holds specialist practitioner status in managing Obesity and Diabetes (UK qualified) and he is also a qualified phlebotomist which means heis quite lucky in having access to blood work. His main interest in his professional life is understanding how the human body works and applying that knowledge to help people either regain health or optimise those that are already reasonably fit. His personal low-carb journey started at age 50 when he started began that way and then he did what most people do and I eventually tried Keto. The obvious progression from there was to try carnivore, it was by 55th birthday. This was also when he studied under Dr Shawn Baker at MeatRx (now Revero) to become a certified online Coach. Currently he has over 500 reviews from happy clients from that platform and from the Steak and Butter Gang too. Recently he began to document all the transformations in health and body composition and has a growing daily library of video success stories that he is immensely proud of and will be continually adding to. He has recently set up a new online community just for carnivores. It has tons of free videos all about the physiology and health benefits of eating low carb, articles, success stories and even a weekly zoom Q&A. The space is free from dogma and trolls!

The Salmon Trout Enhancement Program, or S.T.E.P, has been around since the early 1980s, an effort by the Oregon State Legislature to put Oregonians more closely in touch with the management of natural resources, chiefly by way of allowing volunteers to help raise more fish. Like many programs, S.T.E.P has evolved over the years and now includes a strong educational component that brings salmon and trout eggs into classrooms, allowing students to see the salmon/trout lifecycle up close. Volunteering and education remain the two biggest aspects of the program as chat with program coordinator Marty Olson, former S.T.E.P biologist Karen Hans and current S.T.E.P biologist Gary Vonderohe.

In today's conversation, I am joined by Luke Freeman, who is the executive director of Giving What We Can, an organization dedicated to creating a culture where people are inspired to give to the world's most effective charities. Giving What We Can was one of the first organizations in the world focused on effective altruism: the project of using evidence and reason to figure out how to best help others, and taking action on that basis. I specifically asked Luke to be on the show today to discuss behavioral science concepts and how they line up with nonprofits. Sometimes, concepts perform exactly as they would in a traditional customer/company relationship when there is money being exchanged…but in other cases, research has found this isn't the case. When people are volunteering or donating some tactics that would show you are grateful or appreciative of a customer (like giving a gift) may backfire and feel…off. Knowing this is a time of year when people who work in nonprofits or volunteer on boards are gearing up for year-end asks or doing strategic planning for next year and people may be thinking of their annual donations, it seemed like the perfect time for this episode to help everyone be more effective with their support of others now and into the future. Show Notes: [00:45] In today's conversation, I am joined by Luke Freeman, who is the executive director of Giving What We Can. [03:08] Luke shares his background and the work that he does. His background is in marketing and he has recently moved to the nonprofit sector. [05:14] When Giving What We Can was looking for an executive director, it was a perfect opportunity to do work that was really important to him. [06:18] Typically, when people are giving to charity they are giving to something right in front of them or things that they have had some experience with. [07:39] When people think about charity effectiveness generally the two things that they think of are overheads or administrative costs and impact. [09:48] The first bar is trying to get people to look outside of themselves and try to improve the lives of others. Once you are there then you narrow in on where you can make the most impact. [12:27] We can take time to think about what we care about, whose life/lives we are looking to impact, and what is going to be the best use of money to help. [13:16] We often look at neglectivness because popular problems are often getting a lot of resources already. A lot of stuff is neglected because it fits in the prevention space. [14:44] People are often willing to give right away out of pity or guilt, but that isn't sustainable giving. [16:32] Sometimes behavioral science concepts that work in traditional buying relationships don't necessarily go the same way when looking at nonprofits and charities. [18:45] Donors want to feel confident in their donations. Showing other humans giving and why they give is also quite motivating. [22:29] If your company gets the right story it can really work for the company in terms of their own sales as well. People prefer that there be a logical story that is told of why that charity makes sense for the company they are partnering with. [24:55] With any brand messaging when you can be specific and narrow the story down or follow the story of someone it has a bigger impact. [27:33] Donation matching is also popular but there isn't a lot of strong evidence of its effect. [28:52] Recurring donations make more sense for many donors and are much more sustainable. [30:30] The door in the face technique and artificial surveillance cues don't tend to be as effective with donations. Explanation about context from Melina and why this might be happening – don't generalize results! [33:25] Recognizing volunteer contributions and having a more human connection can be very helpful for keeping and increasing volunteers. Volunteering strategies are going to be very specific to the organization's context. [35:00] Some volunteer opportunities are also donor nurturing programs in disguise (in a good way). It showcases the work that the charity does and even if they cost more to run, they are worth it because they create new donors. [37:51] Don't give people reasons not to do the thing you want them to do. Also, after the fact appreciate it. [39:10] If you do nothing else this month, what does Luke recommend? You really need to get in the head of your user and in this case that is a donor. Your existing donor base is the biggest asset you have. [40:15] People really care that they are able to help others and they want their money to go as far as possible. A game of “hot or not” with Luke's rapid-fire tips. [43:41] Melina shares her closing thoughts. [43:51] I love the idea of being more thoughtful before supporting the most popular organization you might see or hear about the most.
