Problems surround us: division, anger, violence, corruption, poverty, homelessness, and family breakdown. Too often, we feel powerless to do something about them. We wonder, why doesn't somebody do something?
The good news is, somebody can, YOU can be one who changes the world around you.
John C. Maxwell and Rob Hoskins have spent their lives as catalysts for change. They started small, simply helping others where they were because they wanted to add value to people. Over decades of making a difference, they developed a straightforward blueprint for creating positive change.
Now they want to share their stories of change and teach you how to make a difference.
Learn from not only their experience but also those of teenagers, single moms, business people, and volunteers who saw a need, felt compassion, and took action.
Be the somebody that does something.
Change your world.
