Twenty-four years ago, Stephen Seidel heard an interview on the news with Jimmy Carter and was inspired to pick up a hammer and an apron and get involved as a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity in his local Minneapolis, St.Paul affiliate.Â Twenty four years later, Stephen Seidel serves the same organization as the Senior Director for the organization’sÂ Global Program Design and Implementation.Â Among other profound principles, one that struck me most was how he has been able to blend his passion with his career. Great life lesson for all of us.
In this moving interview, you will hear about how Habitat for Humanity International allowed the difficult economic times to forge new innovative ways of thinking.Â It’s really an amazing story as Stephen illustrates the impact by opening a window into their new work in what was a deteriorating neighborhood of Milwaukee.Â Listen as he talks about how because of this new work, people are now back on their front porch greeting neighbors as they walk by and strolling to the local merchants that once were closed up but now thriving.
Amazing story. Moving interview. Tranformational work. Listen in and I think you will agree.
