Everybody Matters Podcast: John Foppe

John Foppe is an extraordinary individual.

He is a husband, father, speaker and author of the book “What’s Your Excuse? Making the Most of What You Have.” He is also the executive director of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of St. Louis, an international Catholic organization that offers person-to-person assistance to the poor.

John was also born without arms.

But John’s story is one of inspiration. It’s a challenge to us all to look at our own personal sense of value and ability to cast a vision in our own lives.

John recently spoke at the BW Leadership Institute (now Chapman & Co. Leadership Institute, read more here.) You can watch him in the video below or you can listen to his story on this week’s edition of the Everybody Matters podcast.
