Making a Difference: The Ripple Effect of Kindness (Throwback Episode)

In this Coffee Chat throwback episode, Amber and Lisa delve into the profound impact that mentors, teachers, and friends can have by recognizing and nurturing our potential. Through heartwarming personal stories, they illustrate how small acts of kindness and words of encouragement can change lives.


The Power of a Teacher's Influence

"There were many teachers in my life that saw something in me and chose to hone in on that thing and encourage me." - Lisa


From fifth-grade teachers who believed in them to choir directors who pushed them to explore their full range, Amber and Lisa share how educators played a pivotal role in shaping their confidence and guiding their paths.


Small Acts, Big Impact

"You never know what small word can someone realize they have done something that makes a difference in the world." - Amber


A child's unsolicited compliment at a birthday party, a simple smile exchanged with a stranger – these are the seemingly insignificant moments that can leave a lasting impression and inspire others to be their best selves.


The Challenge: Express Gratitude, Pay It Forward
