  • The Journey to Discovering
    Your Influential Voice

     Now Available at Amazon

    This book is about discovering your Influence Factor. It is a personal journey, one of discovery and exploration. Some may call it a journey in finding your voice. Others may call it a journey of self-discovery. But it is really about moving past what you do, your rituals and routines, and the roles that you play. It is about moving past passion. It is about connecting with the core of who you are and how you use that core to create influence in your work, your life and in your relationships. It is about a journey to find your Influence Factor.

    Over my years of counseling, coaching and training, I always have been fascinated by influence. When I studied and looked deeper into what makes one person more influential than another, I discovered that the Influence Factor had nothing to do with a skill set. It wasn’t just a strategy you employed by itself without a personal connection. The Influence Factor is a way of connecting your true self in the interactions you have in all aspects of your life, both personal and professional.  READ MORE....

I wanted to tell you how The Influence Factor has help me grow as a person. As I first started reading I was like “oh lord I have to write something.” But as I continued to read I started to respect the exercises in the book. They make you dig deep within yourself and be honest with who you really are. Scary at first but very necessary. On page 42, where Ann shares how to “Own Your Self Worth” was a deep chapter for me. It posed a few questions which I wasn’t sure I was ready to answer: 1. Control do you have it in your life? At the time I could honestly say no I really didn’t. If you ask me now I can say yes in a healthy way at that. 2. Commitment: Are you committed to the things you value and believe in? I thought so but as I continued to soul search I realized I was more committed to everyone else then to myself. That has since changed. 3.Challenge: Are you willing to take risks and try new things? This question here is a work in progress. I am still working on it one day at a time. Thanks Ann, for your book. Everyone should read it! Love, Haneef Jordan, http://www.facebook.com/touchmycloset
