"In 1963, I sat in a school assembly and watched a pretty girl join a performer and his dog on stage. The girl was confident and joyful, and she interacted with the performer and his canine sidekick as if she were an 'audience plant'. I thought to myself, "I have to find a way to meet this girl."
Truth be told, I didn't possess the self-esteem that would provide me with the courage to introduce myself. Besides, she was in college prep, destined for greatness, and I would be joining the workforce after high school. Our lives were divergent.
Several months later, a mutual friend arranged a meeting for us. Today, 40 years later, that girl and I are proud parents, and grandparents. We came together in 1963 because of the power of Outfluence, and it has the power to transform your life, too."
