    "In a world where you can be anything, be kind."
    -Anonymous
     
    We are all more connected than we can possibly imagine. We are constantly influencing and being influenced.  The question is: is our influence making the world a better place? When it comes to Houston Kraft, it's a resounding "YES." So when Mark heard about his great work in influence and kindness, he had to have him on the show.
     
    Houston is a trainer, speaker, and kindness advocate. He has personally presented and spoken at over 500 schools, conferences, and companies across the US and continues to impact on a larger scale through CharacterStrong, a curriculum he developed with John Norin that helps K-12 school cultures change to empower students in their social and emotional development.
     
    When it comes to authenticity, kindness, and influence, there are few that can match Houston's wisdom. To hear his thoughts on why we should be kind instead of nice, how everything we do impacts the universe, and how we can be more effective leaders and influencers, check out Episode 245 of People Being Real!
     
    Enjoy!!
