Impact begins with "I." We must be our own change agents. By realizing the power of "I" in the selfless instead of selfish sense of the word, we can make a difference in someone's life every day. I am a person with Parkinson's Disease, diagnosed 12 years ago at age 44. Four years later, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had just started my own business, I had two children in elementary school, and I was discovering I wasn't the perfect woman success story. I didn't set out to be inspiring, but the more I shared my authentic self with others, the more encouraged I became that by showing the chinks in my armor, I could make a difference in other people's lives. My presentations impact audiences and encourage them to make their own impact...starting with "I."
