Award Winning Author Justin Sachs Releases - The Power of Philanthropy
SAN DIEGO, CA – Justin Sachs, the 21-year old motivational powerhouse, announced today the release of his fourth book titled The Power of Philanthropy being published by his publishing company, Motivational Press, in partnership with the non-profit entity, Kiva, an organization that aides entrepreneurs in third world countries.
Sachs, the president and founder of eight organizations, including two non-profit entities of his own and his own publishing company, is a man passionate about changing the status quo. His life is a journey of empowering others to achieve great things.
“I began this journey when I was 16. That’s when I founded Peak Performance Lifestyles Foundation which was dedicated and committed to empowering teenagers to become leaders within their communities. Now, I oversee a total of eight organizations committed to motivating people to better themselves. This is also the message in all of my books,” Sachs said.
Sachs’ first book, Your Mailbox is Full is a teen guidebook that provides teenagers with life-skills and leadership development principles which quickly became a best-seller. He followed that up with, The Power of Persistence another best-selling book that chronicles “the most uplifting and impacting stories of how persistence has shaped the lives of our greatest business leaders.”
The Power of Philanthropy is Sachs’ fourth book (the third was a lifestyle journal based on Your Mailbox Is Full) and attempts to inspire others to embrace the concept of philanthropy.
“Philanthropy is one of the most important elements of success and one that is very much needed in today’s world. More than ever, we as a society must come together in contribution to ensure an enlightened future. It is every person’s responsibility to do whatever they can to contribute in whatever way they can,” Sachs said.
According to Sachs, philanthropy has been an integral part of his life since the age of five.
“When I was five years old my best friend Connor died. To help his family with medical expenses my mother started Connor’s Cause for Children and I began volunteering at all the fundraising events and I’ve continued to feel strongly about such causes to this day,” Sachs said.
According to Sachs a significant portion of the book’s proceeds will be donated to Kiva.
Next on Sachs’ agenda is a 27 city/24 month speaking tour across the US and overseas set to launch on August 10, 2010. Also the preparation has begun on the next two books by Justin Sachs: Ultimate Business Mastery and The Power of Coaching.
