As producer of CommonGood Capital’s podcast ‘A New Lens’ I’ve been fortunate throughout 2021 to be able to listen in as Jeff Shafer speaks to all kinds of people about thier own personal Impact journey – showcasing a broad spectrum of beliefs, backgrounds, and interests – but all with one key similarity: they’ve all found a joy and freedom in being able to invest themselves and their resources into the common good.
