The Day's Program
Dr. Brian Smith is a fellow Rotarian from the Elgin Club. He has a couple best selling non-fiction books, Individual Influence and Positive Influence, both written with his daughter Mary Griffin. He has several businesses, and lectures around the country. Today he spoke to us about Influence - finding, being and building our influence. Keys steps to finding your influence is to  1) slow down, 2) focus, 3) understand yourself, 4) know your foundation, and 5) know your bias.  It was a very positive presentation and reaffirmed the Rotary's Random Acts of Kindness.
