When Pain Pushes You Into Purpose

When Pain Pushes You Into Purpose”- Let’s Talk Nonprofit Host & “Nonprofit Guru” Torri Hicks sits with recipient of President Obama’s Champion of Change Award, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, Former VP of Operation Hope, Advisor of Citizen Trust Bank, and Founder/Chairman of the Phoenix Leadership Foundation, James “Jay” Bailey, for an up-close and personal interview. Jay shares his personal journey of being a young millionaire in a rising real-estate industry to quickly losing everything and having to sleep in his storage unit. Hear how he bounced back and assisted in the rapid growth of Operation Hope as a VP and then ultimately realizing that in order to truly “Build as He Climbs” he had to walk away from glitz and money to chase the passion that mattered most, “Changing the Way the World Sees Young Black Men.”
