This just in: Light the path for others

Light the path for others

Light the path for others

“Don’t let your learning lead to knowledge. Let your learning lead to action.” ~Jim Rohn

A friend of mine recently asked me if she could pay me to help her rewrite her resume. Another asked me if he could pay me to help him craft a cover letter. I turned them both down. I offered to do it for nothing. I’ve been very fortunate in my life to have so many people who have helped me along my path, especially when I was down and out. I could spend my entire life paying forward those favors and it won’t ever be enough. I’ve been blessed by a lot of angels.

The knowledge I’ve gained from my many experience has given me a rich life. However, the true value of that knowledge isn’t in my ownership of it. The real value is revealed when I share it and use it to make my corner of the world a better place in the best way I know how. Take what you know and give it away. Let it be a light for others. In time it will come back to you in ways you never thought possible.

About Christa Avampato

I make a living in business and I make a life as a writer, artist, and yogi. I use my business and storytelling skills to build a better world. My first novel, Emerson Page and Where the Light Enters, will be published in the Fall of 2017 by Thumbkin Prints, a children's and YA imprint of Possibilities Publishing Co. My creative career has stretched across Capitol Hill, Broadway theatre, education, nonprofit fundraising, health and wellness, and Fortune 500 companies in retail, media, and financial services. In every experience, I have used my sense of and respect for elegant design to develop meaningful products, services, program, and events to help people live happier, healthier lives. A recovering multi-tasker, I am a proud alum of UPenn (BA) and the Darden School at UVA (MBA). When not in front of my Mac, I’m on my yoga mat, walking my rescue dog, Phineas, traveling with a purpose, or practicing the high-art of people watching. I am proud to New York City my home, and I've been called the happiest New Yorker by friends and strangers alike. They're right. Follow my adventures on Twitter at and Instagram at
