PMP: Encore 04 Thankfulness (And the Bacon Story)

This week’s podcast episode is an encore recording of one of my favorite growing-up stories.

As you listen, I hope you take time to remember your own good memories. As we approach Thanksgiving, I hope you are taking time to recharge your batteries and invest time with friends and family. Thanks for doing what matters!
Here are the shownotes for PMP: Encore 04:

  • Listen to the infamous “Bacon” story I sometimes share to illustrate the unique experiences I had growing up.
  • I didn’t know it at the time, but I qualified as a Title I student. I share how that helps me have perspective today.
  • The small successes that each of experience are the direct result of the time others have invested in us. You can read the whole story in my previous blog post Never Underestimate Your Influence.
  • Takeaways for you:
    1. What you do requires courage. Thanks for investing in others even when it’s hard.
    2. You are not alone. Working together is the only way you’ll ever really maximize your ability to influence.
    3. On behalf of kids who are considered “at-risk”, thank you for the countless ways you provide leadership, resources, tools and love.

Now It’s Your Turn
Reach out to those who have encouraged you in your leadership and tell them thanks. How can you ‘pay-it-forward’ by investing in aspiring leaders?
