As leaders in our business I think it’s also important that we become leaders in our community. It’s important to find ways to give back and be a part of our community. Whether you are in a small market or large market, there are ways to get involved by way of organizations that need help and support, and it is important to be an advocate in the community for those organizations. On today’s episode I had a great time sitting down with a gentleman named Kirk Kirkpatrick. Kirk is an amazing leader, and has really been a staple and a huge advocate for the Owensboro community as a whole. There is not an event that you can go to in Owensboro that he isn’t involved with, and the things that Kurt has done to shape this community are really incredible. Kirk has an amazing personality, and a wonderful career story. The way he has gotten engaged in his community has created a positive impact, and it is a motivation for others to understand what can be done when we are intentional about making a difference. What I’m encouraging you to do, is listen to Kirks information today, and think about ways that you can get involved and give back to your community as well.
