Camp for kids 

We’ve the opportunity to connect with people who’ve made a true and measurable impact in the world, including well-known experts, authors, leaders, speakers, ministers, innovators, business geniuses, and entrepreneurs. But among this group of world influencers there are also everyday people who have found a special niche in which they’ve contributed at the highest level.

It’s critical to note that people who’ve made a real difference aren’t all privileged, advantaged or “special” by any stretch. Many come from disadvantaged families, crushing circumstances and initially limited capabilities, but have found ways to pick themselves up and rise above their circumstances (and their genes) to transform their own lives and those around them.Type your paragraph here.

Look around and you’ll see three kinds of people — those who hate their work, and complain bitterly, those who just tolerate their work and see it as a paycheck and aren’t looking for more (or feel they can’t have more), and finally, those who love what they do. They relish it and actually see it as a calling. This third category is a small subset of all, locally, nationally and globally, and whether in all industries and vocations. This group stands out because these are, most often, the people who change the world for the better.
