You can’t take it with you….

….and you really should share it before you go, anyway. Today’s Drucker Business Forum at KPCC in Pasadena featured Tom Tierney and his new book GIVE SMART: Philanthropy that Gets Results, all about wise charitable giving. And of course while money is important, Tierney stressed that time is, too, and planning, so for those of you out there who say you don’t have much, know that there’s more to giving than that.

The exciting news is that more people are being philanthropic than ever before; the trend is “giving while living.” If you’ve read Radio Shangri-La, you know that’s the bug I got after first visiting Bhutan, the insatiable desire to give stuff and money and time away, for the greater good.
