EP 337 | Give Back with Susan Wintersteen

August 15, 2023

Listen Now

While giving back is on a lot of designers’ wish lists, many are not yet making the income to pay it forward or are already working overtime to manage their paying client workload. In this episode, we talk about the benefits to philanthropy and how to be discerning as you assess opportunities.

In this episode we learn:

  • the benefits of philanthropy include greater confidence, a richer local network and the joy of making a difference
  • not every opportunity is worthwhile or prudent, consider your why before saying yes



It’s ok not to know something but educate yourself so you know who to get the information from.
