A Request

Dear Readers,

I would like to thank you for taking your valuable time to read and sometimes comment on the material you have seen on this blog. I applaud your willingness to learn and be motivated be better leaders in the various aspects of your life, family, community, and organization (s). However, I do have a favor to ask. A couple of years ago, I decided to write two books dealing with creating and pursing one's life vision. I did this because I grew up in poverty and understood what it meant and felt like to struggle against the odds in the United States. As I grew and began to overcome these odds, I realized that there were economic, political, and social struggles throughout the world. Each having its own unique effect on those that are the suppressed. Writing these books enabled me to help those that were lost, tired, and/or confused in their personal struggle a roadmap to happiness. The Barrett Leadership Blog is another avenue to help achieve this outcome, as is brings to the forefront real world leadership topics that need be discussed and addressed appropriately if one wants to transform his/her condition in a positive way.

Now, I know that many of you that read this blog may not be in the most dire situations, which is great, but my request of you today is to recommend this blog to those that you think may be or those that you believe will benefit from the topics presented here. The information presented on The Barrett Leadership Blog is free. It is informational, enlightening, and often uplifting. But in all cases, it is helpful, especially those that are going through a rough time right now. Be clear that I am not asking for anything other than an opportunity to help reach those that may be lost, tired, and confused as they struggle to get ahead. But make no mistake about it, you are the key. So, if it is not too much trouble, please share this The Barrett Leadership Blog with others. My goal is to make leadership contagious so that we can get to the business of rebuilding ourselves, our families, our committees, our organizations, and our countries.

Thank you for your time, your listening, and your help in rebuilding the human race.
