Hello everyone, and welcome to the Follow The Brand Podcast. I am your host, Grant McGaugh, and today I would like to know if you have a curiosity to achieve greater knowledge. My guest John Carpenter does, as he stated during our interview, that he helps students manifest their intellectual ability to think bigger about the world around them.
Career development can be achieved by looking into the mirror and asking yourself how you are contributing to your success and the success of others. This may be a good time, to be honest with yourself. You can become stronger and more confident by working with others to collaborate and leverage a collective call to action.
If you are looking for that moment of clarity to expand your influence in the community, let’s contribute and empower ourselves with a spirit of resilience to create change in our society.
