Changemaking Unplugged

By Merna Schmidt

In this podcast we’ll have raw, honest talks about becoming a changemaker. You will meet everyday changemakers, from young to old, as we pull back the curtain on how they are making their mark, their motivations, their struggles, failures, and remarkable successes they have attained. The power of each person to be a catalyzer of change, regardless of their circumstances or attributes, is immense. We need to take action for our own benefit, as well as for the benefit of others.
