SImple Pickup Gratitude $100 Bill

The guys at SimplePickup.com were refunded a lot of money by a charity after they fundraised a huge amount of cash for them.

Jhaj & Kong decided to go out and tip those who are roughing it out in their minimum wage day jobs and the look on the workers faces are priceless.

This video shows you how far a $100 bill can go for some people who are struggling to pay bills and rent and how grateful people can be when you extend a hand and help them out.

Great video Jhaj & Kong, what an awesome thing you are doing for people out there.

Keep it up guys!

 

Tipping Minimum Wage Workers $100

 

“We handed out more than $1,000 total, and surprisingly, we actually got more tips refused than were accepted during all of our excursions,” Jhaj said.

“For many fast food chains, it’s against policy to accept tips, and many of the workers were actually scared to take the money for fear of getting in trouble — misaligned incentives, if you ask me.”

    Thank you for doing what you do. It’s an amazing feeling to give back. Last summer, my sister and I went downtown and bought many boxes of timbits (mini donuts). We went around the streets handing them out to the homeless. The reactions we received were priceles! Many were confused, some thought it was a joke, or we were playing a trick…but after explaining to them that we were just trying to do nice things for people in need, their smiles, excitement, appreciation and thankful reactions were more than money could buy!
    Simular to the end of your video, after walking around and handing out the last box of donuts we had, we saw a man in the distance, running towards his homeless friends, shouting with excitement…”Guys! You’ll never guess what just happened!” And with a box of donuts in hand, he reached his friends and yelled “who wants some?!” They all cheered happily and my sister and I walked back to my car and headed home. I wish we had videotaped it…but I plan on doing it again soon…and often!
    Thanks for inspiring me again!

    P.S. To other viewers: Yes… we do need more people like this in the world! Are you doing your part? It doesn’t take much at all and the rewards are incredible!

Practicing Self-Devotion: 3 Ways Towards a More Mindful and Compassionate You

I can still hear the voices of my older relatives and my elementary school teachers telling me “be disciplined”, “keep at it”, to give time and energy towards what we want. As a young, impressionable child, I believed all those things because well, they made sense. They worked. And honestly, I felt like it’s the only way to flourish. (more…)

In the weeks and months following the heinous terror attacks of September 11, millions of Americans decreased their domestic air travel. As domestic flying decreased, car travel increased where a study found that people opted to drive longer distances rather than fly. Not taking into account 9/11, there were 331 airplane crash fatalities in the U.S from 1751 crash events. What’s interesting is there were 42,000 driving-related deaths in that same year. The number of deaths in air travel and road travel remained relatively consistent in subsequent years. (more…)

4 Life Changing Lessons I Learned by Starting a Podcast

I had, and still have, a message I want to share with those that will listen. Heck, I am even willing to share it to those that are less than willing to listen. Therefore, I decided to start a podcast. A podcast focused on those that feel like the odds are stacked against them when it comes to venturing into those entrepreneurial waters. Those that have an inner belief that they can do it, but perhaps the people around them are less than enthusiastic about this new journey. 

Nonetheless, these Dark Horses, as I call them, buck the odds and run their own race to reach their own dreams and achieve their own goals. Little did I know that as I launched The Dark Horse Entrepreneur podcast, on a mission to teach others the lessons I have learned in business and in life, that I would be in turn learning even more lessons because of stepping out into the podcast arena.
