Starting Small to Make Big Impacts – Lessons I’ve Learned (and What I Wish I’d Known!)

October 18, 2022

We hope many of you were able to join Amelia Fox with Lutheran Services Florida on Oct 18th at the Tampa Club for a discussion on making a difference in your community. We talked about ways that we can increase our impact and help more of the thousands of families right here in the Tampa Bay region who are struggling every day. The conversation included how little sacrifices that you and your business make will have a big difference in the lives of people in desperate need. We learned about innovative partnerships – such as the one between LSF and WalkOn Mobile Clinic for disaster relief;  creative alliances – such as LSF’s connection with Metropolitan Ministries and Feeding Tampa Bay and the newly formed Bay Area Bridge Builders (; and individual connections – such as the Just2Bikes initiative.


How can you do for one what you wish you could do for everyone?

“Aakash Patel, Chris Melvin and the rest of the Elevate team simply delivered. The connections Aakash made led to valuable relationships for me and new clients for RevStar. You can’t fully appreciate what Elevate can do for your business until you experience it first hand. I personally recommend their services to anybody looking to grow their network and business within the Tampa Bay community.”
