If you are breathing, you’ve got influence. Well-known speaker andAuthor Bill Butterworth uses humorous, honest, and heart-warming stories of influencers in his own life to show how everyday words and actions can have a deep and lasting impact on others. He says, “Influence arrives in the simplest of ways.” *A typewriter and a dad’s comment form a young boy’s future. *A music teacher uses the power of validation to encourage an awkward fourth grader. *A youth leader’s affirmation and involvement changes a life direction. *A struggling young man discovers his niche based on the way God wired him. *A discouraged father finds it’s never too late to influence his family. Who is your life influencing? We’re all influencing, one way or another. Take time to interact, learn the power of words, focus on everyday actions and interactions to help you become a person of influence.
