    Making an Impact

    in Business

    What did you want to be when you grew up? I have always wanted to make a big impact. Write a book a movie or something that would motivate and inspire people to be there best and overcome obstacles. How this would materialize for me was all a puzzle that only makes sense when you look back as to how all the pieces fit together. 
    So many people want to make an impact but don't know what or how.


    Funny it wasn't until I met the guest on todays show Wendy Lipton-Dibner that I really thought about the real emotional connection I have to that impact.


    What moves you? When you tap into what moves you, you can't sit still. You are driven. You can move mountains. Why are you doing what you are doing? Think about it. What impact do you want to make?
