The power of paying it forward

In today’s “Not so regular Joe” episode we bring you a special guest all the way from Los Angeles USA, James Beck. James shares with us his incredible story of how he one day decided to give everything he owned away, and travel around 50 states to give his time to others and provide one act of service. In return, he asked those he served to Pay-it-Forward, which started an incredible domino effect in kindness and cooperative community. 

James explains anyone can start to give back by simply doing an act of service. It can be as simple as smiling at someone in passing or holding a door for someone. Or even simply making eye contact to acknowledge presence.
