Adventurer in Hope

 

We get to choose our priorities and how we spend our time. Over the course of my life, my priorities have shifted immensely, and I now spend a large amount of my time focusing on the work that our foundation is doing, as well as being engaged in impactful community efforts. I’ve created Bob Clark Beyond as a space where I share my thoughts, impressions, and the lessons I’ve learned; but also to share about the work we are doing and encourage others to “go beyond,” by joining me in creating impact beyond our own walls.
