QUOTE:  Often hear this question from younger aspiring leaders. They want to apply my teaching to their current situation, but they don’t know how. The good news is that you can be a leader no matter where you are. You don’t need a title. You don’t need a position. You don’t need a formal education. All you need to begin is the desire to lead and the willingness to learn. The key is influence.
