Advocating for the Needs of Others with Brandon Shurr

Reading Time: minutes

Brandon Shurr is a community organizer, social worker, and pastor. His work centers around advocacy for people who are marginalized and in need of representation. While you’ll hear lots of conversations on career podcast and blogs about transitioning toward more money or a better lifestyle, we all know there’s more to work than just a paycheck. I found my conversation with Brandon to be a great reminder of this.

Money, though important, isn’t the end all. And working simply for the good of others is a rewarding endeavor in and of itself.
