Silent Impact

We make our biggest impressions when we are not trying to be impressive. The words we say or don't say, the things we do or don't do, and the ways we react or don't react can have a tremendous influence on those around us. In Silent Impact, award-winning broadcaster Joe Schmit tells stories of real people and the ways in which they had profound influence on others in daily life. He points to simple, powerful lessons in the stories, and will inspire you to recognize your daily opportunities to make an intentional impact on others.
