In an encore of The Business Beat, Steve Jones-D’Agostino interviews Satya Mitra, co-founder, along with his wife, Sheema Mitra, of JoyGuru Humanitarian Services, a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit they founded last year. They talk about JoyGuru’s mission to provide inspirational-storytelling speaking engagements that ignite people to do good and be good for the community at large in their businesses, organizations and lives. This episode aired originally on April 16, 2017.

Satya also owns and operates the for–profit Guru Tax & Financial Services, which is based in Worcester. And, he is past president of the Rotary Club of Worcester, and is an assistant governor of Rotary District 7910. Through his efforts, District 7910's Million Dollar Journey to raise $1 million in donations or pledges for The Rotary Foundation, which began only nine months ago, has already met – and exceeded - that goal. The new goal, to meet by June 30, 2018, is $2 million. Rotary International gave its various districts two to three years to meet their million-dollar goals.

Satya admits to being a theatrical actor at heart, which is what he dreamed of being while growing up. One of his sons, Alingon Mitra, is a professional stand-up comic.  Making his television debut on NBC's Last Comic Standing, Alingon finished first in the public vote five weeks in a row to win the comic-comeback contest and perform on the finale.

Watch Satya receive District 7910's 2016-2017 Rotarian of the Year Award.
