There were many names we could have selected for this section – Men of Ideals, of Intellect, of Inspiration. We selected the name Men of Influence because above all qualities these men display, influence over their community, their profession and their special interests, by far best exemplifies what we need see in all of us in order to push ourselves harder as a society. They personify ordinary guys achieving extraordinary goals.
Within these pages you will read accounts of accomplishment over adversity, adaptability, and even redemption.
These men show that leadership is developed, not innate, and that in order to lead others, one must first have his foundation intact. You can best serve others when you first have your own house in order. Meaning you have the knowledge, experience, ability and character to be effective, to have an impact, to be an influence.
