by | Nov 30, 2020 | Podcasts

Show notes

John Wood is the founder of Room To Read and author of three best selling books including one that changed my life forever – Leaving Microsoft To Change The World. 

Celebrating its 20th Anniversary, Room to Read has helped 20 million children go to school, learn how to read, and improve their quality of life. 

More than 25 million books have been distributed and more than 10,000 teachers trained in one of the humanitarian and philanthropic world’s most heartwarming success stories of longitudinal change. 

John, a former marketing executive at Microsoft, had a life-changing experience in Nepal which he outlines on this episode. I have no doubt it will inspire you to not only give to Room To Read, but take an even more inspired view of your life and your ability to leave a legacy.
