Brad Formsma ran a business for years, and then felt a calling to help other people become more generous. He founded I Like Giving which resulted in Brad connecting with hundreds of high net worth individuals, and his ability to offer the best and worst practices approaching high capacity givers.
Brad shares how to get over the intimidation many leaders feel when dealing with wealthy people and offers some wonderful insights on how everyone can live a more generous life, some of which have nothing to do with money.

Reasons - People - End - Year - Temptation
One of the biggest reasons people hold off on giving is that they are afraid there won’t be enough at the end of the year. There is a serious temptation to be cheap and label it as “being a good steward.” Don’t do that. Be quick to give. Brad recommends that you live with an abundance mindset and not a scarcity mindset.
An abundance mindset trusts the biblical truths that say “He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. A generous person will prosper.” This has also been backed up by Stephen Post. He had a study show that you live 10 years longer, and take half of the medicine if you are generous in three ways each week. Those with an abundance mindset really do prosper.
