Jan Hargrave is an agent of change!
LS: How does your work inspire positive change?
JH: My teachings help others to perform better in all of their life situations.
LS: If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
JH: Prejudice must be stopped.
LS: Do you embrace change or fear it? Why?
JH: I embrace change…it happens each day in each of our lives. Life changes make life much more interesting.
LS: What’s the greatest change you’ve personally experienced in your life?
JH: Running my own business for the past 15 years has been challenging. Prior to my speaking career, I was a university professor and high school teacher. I’ve learned to make better business decisions as my career has progressed.
LS: Since we cannot change others, what is the best way to help them through challenge?
JH: When challenges occur, one should take tiny steps…seriously think of all the possible solutions and then make a decision and stick to it.
LS: Do you have any advice on how to direct the course of change in our lives?
JH: Only what I said in the statements above, change will occur whether we like it or not. One has to negotiate within his own mind about possible outcomes, ask others for advise and then wisely make a decision.
