John Maxwell is incredible!
The last quote has influenced my life. As UNshy as I am, I being and working alone. To build a business I had to be willing and to deliberately engage with others. To engage authentically, I had to care. The John Maxwell nugget that “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”, resonated with me years ago and helped me put more love into my conversations.
That’s one of my favorite quotes too!
