What's Behind Your Brand?

A few years ago I gave a speech to a group of individuals with disabilities.

I was terrified. I thought the message would go completely over the heads. And I assumed that their intelligence level would keep them from understanding me.

I was wrong. They loved it. Best audience I’ve ever had.
Afterward, a young man from the front row ran up to me with a huge smile on his face. And although his mental condition made it very difficult for him to speak, he placed his hand on my chest and said:

“It’s not the nametag; it’s the heart behind it.”

Just because someone is broken doesn’t mean they can’t teach you.

Is your heart behind your brand?

“I usually refuse to pay for mentoring. But after Scott’s first brain rental session, the fact that I had paid something to be working with him left my mind – as far as I was concerned, the value of that (and subsequent) exchange of wisdom and knowledge, far outweighed any payment."
