If you believe that creating massive financial success & making a massive difference can go hand in hand - and that individuals have the ability to power incredible change - then this is the podcast for you. Once a week, we will be having a conversation with someone who not only created substantial personal and professional success, but has chosen to leverage that success to make a positive impact on the world. We will hear stories about their journey to financial freedom, the obstacles that got in their way, and how they persevered to create the life they wanted. Then, we will learn how they are leveraging their success to multiply their ability to help others, contribute to philanthropy and charity, champion causes they care about, and change the world. Each episode is geared towards you, the ambitious & heart-driven leader, to help guide you on your path to reaching your financial goals and helping to create positive change.

Add This One To Your Library ASAP!
Love the concept and the delivery! Hearing stories about people who turned their success into a way to give back to the world and help those in need is so motivating.
It’s also a great reminder that there are more good people in the work than bad.
Dorothy (host) is super engaging and asks thought provoking questions - the ones you would want to ask if it were you doing the interview.
Overall I’ve loved what I’ve heard so far and can’t wait to hear more!
Inspired for success and to impact the world!
What an amazing source of inspiration AND education. The guests on this podcast have so much to teach based on their own person success and the positive impact they each make in the world in their own unique ways. And Dorothy does an amazing job getting them to open up and share their journeys and lessons learned. I have no room for another podcast in my rotation, BUT I’m now a loyal listener of The Do Well and Do Good Podcast!
Very motivational and informative!!
I love how motivated this podcast makes me feel! Dorothy addresses the negative perceptions surrounding people who make a lot of money, while also showing how monetary contributions can actually be the most effective in making a positive impact on the world. She asks her guests such thoughtful questions that result in real advice to help us reach our personal goals. I don’t know much about business or money in general, but this podcast has left me wanting to learn more :)
