I have the pleasure and true privilege of knowing Zack Gosselin, an 8 year old with the energy, compassion and know-how of an adult that has accomplished in his short life span what most adults couldn’t even conceive of.
At the age of 4 months old, Zack was with his Dad in the VIP section at the ‘Wealth Expo Boston’ put on by Donald Trump, Robert Kiyosaki, and Tony Robbins – three of the most progressive-thinking minds in the entrepreneurial space over the last 20 years. The words he heard clearly made an impression on young Zack as he continues to surround himself with people who are passionate about pursuing personal growth and professional development at the highest of levels, being do-gooders and instruments of peace for everyone (but especially the folks or causes facing ‘trying times’ in their community), and who continuously strive for things to be better in life (for either themselves OR for the community around them).
Although Zack is much more of a lead by example kind of guy, his philanthropic endeavors have unexpectedly gotten him a lot of traction on Social Media, local television, on the radio, in the newspapers, and in school… His father, John Gosselin, co-founder of EarnMoreDoLess.com, often chuckles when people ask him about his son’s accomplishments.
“It’s amazing, so many people go through a majority of their life and struggle to discover what they are TRULY passionate about – the thing they’d do for free each and every day. And then there’s Zack: at just 8 years of age, he has brought thousands of people together in the most elegant of ways to celebrate memory making, fun with friends, and the many many circles of fellowship that exist in the Greater Boston area and beyond.”
His Style, Grace, and “Givers Gain” Mentality Is Beyond Inspiring
The entire team at Monique’s Bath Showroom jumped when his dad John came to me asking if our team would like to help Zack take his philanthropic efforts to the next level by becoming the lead sponsor of this year’s donation efforts.
A recap of Zack’s accomplishments over the last 3 years:
- In 2013, Zack made a $300 anonymous donation to the survivors of the Sandy Hook School shootings in Newtown, CT.
- In 2014, Zack donated $400 to the fallen fire-fighter fund (the lieutenant Ed Walsh and Michael Kennedy Memorial Fund) after the “Back Bay Blaze” took the lives of two of Boston’s best.
- In 2015, Zack headed to Worcester, MA to donate $1,300 in support of Dress For Success – a charity that helps women facing ‘trying’ times get back on their feet in a big way in the working world.
- Zack plans to publish his first book, The Sweet Smell Of Success by the beginning of 2016. His book will highlight how putting “Service Before Self” doesn’t cost a thing. In his book, Zack plans to interview ten prominent New England business owners and share the most delectable ingredients in their success recipe.
Personally, I am always moved in a major way about how he goes about doing thoughtful things differently at such a young age. His story empowers so many people at all ages to do more good deeds for others.
As for you, I hope you’ll join me and the soon to be over 500 others who have “LIKED” Zack’s page on Facebook. To do this, you can visit DreamBigville.org – you’ll be glad you did 🙂

P.S. – If you have a cause that Zack could support or boost along, please let me know and I’ll forward your information on to his dad. John is a dear friend and somebody who has helped Monique’s surge forward in this digitally-driven era in a big way.
P.P.S. – Zack was featured in the Worcester Telegram on March 6, 2015 for the great work he’s done with Dress For Success.
