My guest for this episode is Mickey Desai. Mickey produces the Nonprofit SnapCast podcast. With an M.A. in Counseling Psychology, almost two decades of business development experience and a résumé that touches IBM, TechBridge, and Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity, Mickey brings knowledge, understanding, and a unique perspective to every project.

Mickey has a curiosity and sensitivity that stems from his academic pursuits and his experience working within a variety of organizational cultures. He is able to ensure that all parties feel heard in working toward problem resolution and maintains the mark of a good conversation is in the listening.

Here’s what to expect during the episode:

  • An introduction to the nonprofit snapshot and the “undesired” need for nonprofits to have themselves evaluated.
  • The value of listening to a whole spectrum of perspectives through podcasts or normal conversations.
  • Balancing passion with good business sense. Be grounded in reality!
  • Facing the difficulty of matching your capacity with the organization’s needs.
  • The essence of breathing joy into the things you do each day.
