In Chapter 12 or 16, micro-philanthropist and humanitarian Adam Carter highlights the importance of involving one's parents in the process of defining a career, especially a non-traditional one. Carter learns early that continuous communications, inclusiveness, and sharing with his parents creates a supportive, versus a combative, relationship built on trust and understanding. This gives Carter the confidence necessary to develop a non-traditional career built on a cultural anthropology education and extensive international travels. Carter, a micro-philanthropist, founded the Cause and Affect Foundation (www.causeandaffectfoundation.org). He also is a beer vendor at Chicago Cubs and White Sox baseball games each summer.
