“One of the best investments you’ll ever make is doing something for somebody else.”
One never really knows where their career path may take them. While working for Octagon Asset Management, Mead Welles found himself traveling to other countries and saw how there were some children who did not have the same lifestyle that most of us take for granted. Seeing children who were missing limbs and unable to easily perform daily functions inspired Welles to create A Leg To Stand On, an organization dedicated to providing artificial limbs and surgery for children in other countries. Welles may have had his start in the financial industry, but he was determined to invest in the future of others to help them live better lives.
