Identity Leadership with Stedman Graham - Ep.282 - Phenomenal!
I have been on a significant transformational journey in my life over the past 5 years. I was searching for my identity. Nothing was clear for me. I was in a job that I did not appreciate and going down a path that took me far away from who I am. Listening to this podcast and hearing Stendman share his story and message made me see that the search to discover who I am and what I want was worth it. People in this world are stuggling to find themselves and it will only come through Identity Leadership. I found out about Stedman's current work through Justin Ehreche who is a leader in the Southwestern Family of companies. I am so glad I connected with Justin. He has led me to the one person who shares my passion for self-leadership. When I picked up a copy of Stedman's book I immediately saw how intertwined our stories were. It was as if he wrote what was in my head. Now listening to him share this message, I am blessed. I look forward to meeting with Stedman one day. I am his mentee from a distance until the opportunity is presents itself for us to meet.
Dan Moore, you did an excellent job with this episode. Thank you!
