Our special guests have impacted countless people through the years with their generosity and care for others. While our guest even made NFL history as the first African American head coach to win the Super Bowl, the influence isn’t the result of their achievements, fame, or finances. Instead, it stems from the proactive, intentional choices they make every day—choices that have positioned them to live a life of profound meaning. Join us to learn how to boost your personal impact on those around you and your ability to see others with a heart of compassion. You can become the person you long to be. What’s more, you can rewire your default pattern, making it easier to create permanent change and remove the daily burden of deciding how to show up in the world. By putting certain practices into place and predetermining your personal boundaries of what you’ll say yes to and what you’ll say no to, all that will be left each day is to live.
