Listen! New Interview with Brad on the Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast


Do you know what it’s like to be in a room with the president of In ‘N Out Burger, a billionaire entrepreneur, and an individual on the Forbes List? 

Probably not.

But Brad does—and what he’s discovered about generous living despite all levels of wealth is sure to transform your life! And we can’t wait to share this with you.

In this powerful new interview, Brad Formsma, the Founder of I Like Giving, shares this story (and more) on a podcast loved by thousands of leaders and pastors worldwide, The Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast.

The Carey Nieuwhof Leadership Podcast

Brad and Carey met early in 2019 at a private event Brad hosted about generosity, and they become fast friends. Their love for people, along with their passion for sharing information and inspiration to improve the lives of those who hear from them, created an instant bond. Brad has appreciated how much he’s learned from Carey in their short relationship.

We’re so thankful for the opportunity to share what we’ve learned about generous living through Carey’s podcast. And we wanted to give all of the I Like Giving family a chance to listen!

In this interview Brad and Carey talk about:

  • Bringing high net worth individuals together to create shared experiences around generosity

  • How to build relationships with your donors, not just ask them for money

  • Ways to overcome the intimidation and awkward conversations

  • Six ideas to live a generous life beyond giving money

  • Practical tips to be generous with your influence

  • The biggest barriers to a generous spirit

A few key takeaways

Generosity starts with the relationships

If you see your donors as a means to an end, they will quickly realize it. Instead, invest in the relationship and give these high net worth givers an opportunity to be able to be with peers and to be challenged—in both their faith and their generosity. Don’t make your donors feel like an ATM.

There’s more to generosity than money

Brad encourages people to be generous with more than their financial wealth. We all have the ability to give in so many other ways. Here’s the full list:

  • Generous with thoughts

  • Generous with words

  • Generous with money

  • Generous with influence

  • Generous with time

  • Generous with attention

  • Generous with stuff
