I have been asked to speak to various groups over the past few years. These groups range from high school students, to business/entrepreneurial groups, to social groups to collegiate classes and clubs. I spoke to a group of what I thought was going to be teenager who are entrepreneurial-minded, but there ended up being many adults and senior citizens. When I finished speaking, I had quite a few students and seniors speak about how inspired they were. Two older ladies stated that they wish they were younger because they were inspired to take a leap of faith to start a business.
The feedback I received was overwhelming. I don’t think that the groups knows, I got probably as much as they got out of the talk from their responses. There is really something to be said about the rewards of giving back.
